Comments and queries for the week of February 10

Why, oh why, is the History Channel constantly showing repeats of Canadian Pickers, especially during the day? So annoying. —Christina


While Pure started off really REALLY hokey (Ep. 1 and 2), it has now settled into a super show with great cliffhangers (so far Ep 3 and 5 have knocked it out of the park with fantastic writing and cliffhangers). With one more episode to go, I now can’t wait to see how this ends. I’m not sure how they will end it, (and by the time I am writing this, it’s already finalized how it ends). However, I hope that it has such a great cliffhanger that it lends itself to a second season (if CBC runs with it again). The potential of further material to do more seasons on this premise is huge—as I’ve researched some of this stuff in the past—and I can see more future in this show.

When I first heard about this production in 2016, I was so curious how this show would go, and I have now been totally blown away by the cast, directing, writing and creativity.

Thanks, CBC, for having the guts to go with this show. —Dale

I love the timeslot for Pure in Ontario. It comes right after the Murdoch Mysteries which I love. Pure is great, love it! I look forward to Mondays where I can watch it! —Rolfe

Pure (CBC) is a phenomenal show which is so well cast that it stands head & shoulders above the rest. Hoping for more next year! —Sandra
