From John Doyle of the Globe and Mail:
- Television: A time of promise, needed more than ever
“CBC is banking on Being Erica (starts Jan. 5), a charming drama, being a hit. It stars Erin Karpluk, familiar to fans of Godiva’s, as thirtysomething Erica Strange. Erica is a relentless underachiever who’s feeling lost. Then she gets a chance to change her past life, thanks to mercurial therapist Dr. Tom (Michael Riley), who seems to be able to send her back in time. The first episode is wonderful. CTV has The Listener, which has already been sold to NBC (starts in March, probably) and, while rumours about the show’s direction abound, it certainly opens strongly.” Read more.
