'Gotham' is not the Batman tale most fans have grown to know and love because unlike other incarnations, this one doesn't feature the Dark Knight being all broody, saving the day. Anyone who loves a good origin series will love it, but even those who aren't interested in how things began will still sink their teeth into the drama.
This has nothing to do with privacy. I'm so tired of people blabbering on about how we need to respect people's privacy. Sexuality shouldn't be a private matter. It certainly isn't for straight people.
I'm not saying "Red Band Society" is perfect, but it's pretty darned close and, what's best, it's unlike anything on TV right now. Sure, it's a little "Fault in our Stars"-y, but otherwise it hits the mark, and then some.
Usually, MasterChef exaggerates: most extreme pressure test ever, or biggest cooking competition in the world!" but this finale was super real.
The contestants will probably once again take a back seat, awkwardly watching the continuation of the Adam-Blake bromance while awaiting meaningful feedback (which may or may not even come) that could help steer them toward a career as a famous singer. Which, don't forget, is supposed to be the premise of this whole thing.
Comedy isn't like baseball: there are few empirical statistics from which to derive talent, performance, and yep, even pay scales. This all said, it's of my strong opinion that Toronto's Alex Nussbaum is Canada's funniest comedian.
Downton Abbey sweeps back on to Sunday-night television in Britain this weekend, much to the delight of its avid fan base. While the British public has long had a love affair with costume drama -- not to mention Dame Maggie Smith -- the rest of the world has also taken the show to its bosom.
The Internet being a global phenomenon, there is now an obvious discrepancy between the rules applying to Canadian broadcasters, and what companies like Netflix can "broadcast" in Canada through a website or an app. When certain companies are subject to restrictive regulation while some of their competitors are not, there are calls from the regulated companies for the same rules to apply to their competitors.
For almost a year now, Canada's broadcast regulator has been holding an important conversation with Canadians about the future of television. And while the effort, dubbed "Let's Talk TV," has heard from individual Canadians, the Commission has so far not addressed some of the most important issues.
'Z Nation' is from The Asylum -- the producers who brought the world 'Sharknado' -- but don't sneer at 'Z Nation.' It's nothing like the campy oceanic creature sci-fi phenomenon; though don't get me wrong, it's no 'Walking Dead' either. And so begin the comparisons.
This is what I was waiting for all season. Total and complete chaos. I was sure we were stuck with Kevin in the woods and wondering what the heck the GR were doing laying out baby clothes.
It's the second-to-last day of shooting of the highly anticipated movie, Corner Gas. I am ushered into a darkly lit room called the video village to sit and wait out the filming of a scene before I can interview Brent Butt, creator and star of the Corner Gas TV series that is phenomenally popular in Canada.
I hate tag team challenges -- it gives me Leslie-like stress. But we can start at the beginning. The contestants al get letters from home that make them cry and then they have to cook a savory apple dish. No sweets. Courtney, smug little thang, wins, though I was feeling Christian's stuffed chop.
It's a long way from the 1950s, when comics were blamed for juvenile delinquency and the subject of U.S. senate hearings calling for censorship. So rest assured that your child's love of superheroes is not just fun, but meaningful, and because you grew up with the same ones it's a great cultural meeting point for mom and dad, too.
The Video Music Awards have become a halfhearted, one-dimensional, and quite frankly inexplicable use of airtime, and in the post-TRL years have become about as relevant and vital as the music video itself.
Rectify is like the moody art-school sister of True Detective, the elegant, lyrical aunt of The Killing; the perfect combination of drama, suspense, doubt and dysfunction.
