The good folks at JFL42 must have known Toronto was getting antsy for comedy, because they offered up a taste of the festival -- an amuse-bouche, if you will -- just this past week. I was ever-so-lucky to see one of the best in the biz, festival alumni Todd Barry.
The words "poop on the wall" and "mosaic of semen" aren't exactly the descriptors that have me excitedly reaching for the remote, but because "Hotel Hell" stars Gordon Ramsay, I pressed play with only the tiniest bit of hesitation.
I have a good sense of humor, but... can't you find something else to make us laugh? Why are we gays so amusing to the rest of you?
3. When someone tells you they love you and admits to being terrified at saying this, do not pout your bottom lip and make a baby talk noise like this person is an adorable toddler who just pooped on the potty for the first time.
Two male characters in a love scene together - pretty ballsy (forgive me for the pun, and the bad romance novel writing) for a mainstream network TV show, right? Sure, you could say that, until the moment where Jason woke and it turned out to be 'just a dream' - phew! Cue 'comedy' worried look from Jason Stackhouse, slumped over in Church, oops. Roll opening credits!
Previously, on '24: Live Another Day,' s**t was about to go down. The finale takes place between 10 p.m. and 11 a.m., and it's freakin' bananas. Trust.

Monday night on PBS, the first of my two-part conversation with legendary comedian Joan Rivers. We talked about her longstanding career and her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva. Rivers spoke candidly about what will happen if the moment ever comes when she can no longer perform on stage.
Canadians are heading out for the second season of 'The Amazing Race Canada,' and the stakes are high. Not only for CTV, which is bringing back the ratings juggernaut, but for the actual show itself. Can 'Amazing Race Canada' strike reality gold two years in a row?
So much great stuff is happening on 'Secrets & Lies' -- the writing, the directing and the acting; it manages to be completely authentic without trying too hard. What's best, though, is that it'll only take six weeks (or less) to find out who the culprit is.
Oh, there are so many questions. I have to admit, that I am easily creeped out, in that suspenseful, sick feeling kind of way, and this show is totally doing it for me. Some of it is also ridiculous.
A cheese hat, polka, / Beer. Welcome to Milwaukee. / Still no "I love you."
Mostly, binge watching is a handy way to revisit old shows and catch up on missed episodes of ongoing ones. But it has a destructive dimension when it comes to new series, especially as deployed by the principal promoter of binge: Netflix.
Brussels is all scarves / V-neck sweaters and fam talk. / Just six bros to go.
