  1. For some reason the poll won’t let me vote but if I could I would vote for Frontier, Kim’s Convenience and Shoot the Messenger. An honourable mention would go to Second Jen which after a rough pilot, has gotten steadily better with each episode. I have yet to watch Traveler but should get to it eventually. I’ve also watched one episode of The Beaverton but haven’t decided whether to keep or cut it yet. My list of shows to watch is at 50 year-round plus there’s 22 other shows I’d like to get to eventually. It’s getting ridiculous how much good TV there is nowadays. And there’s a pile of new shows coming mid season. Anyone else finding the list of shows they are watching or want to watch growing unreasonably long?

    1. Bryan Inc. is my favorite, and the only one on the list that I watch. Was watching the McGillivray’s when it first started, but I feel that their new home is way over the top, and that has put me off. Their design style is quite elaborate. Do four people really need that much space? Bryan’s house is lovely, and I love their decorating style.

  2. The Beaverton is by far the best thing new this season. It actually has bite to it unlike other Canadian comedies. 22 Minutes hasn’t been funny in years and Rick Mercer has a gone from a great comedian to the host of Canadian travel show. The Beaverton takes risks of offending the right people and hence it’s quite refreshing. Also, Frontier has some hope of making Canadian history interesting again.

  3. Bryan Inc., like the McGillivary’s but tired of all the blatant product placement…let me deposit my cheque with my CIBC app while I stand by my Pollard window😁
