Diane and Anthony test-drive the Google Hangout method of recording the podcast to make Diane even more neurotic, while chatting about:
- Requesting donations for this year’s TV, eh? charity auction
- Less Than Kind’s farewell season beginning June 2
- The Rockie Award and Leo Award nominations
- YouTube deals for Canadian producers
- Bell’s assertion that they’ll do no more divesting for the Astral deal
- And yes, we rant about Bell’s contempt for Diane and this website.

WINGIN’ IT TAKES ITS FINAL FLIGHT MAY 25 ON FAMILY CHANNEL
After three hit seasons of magical mayhem, the adventures of Carl Montclaire and Porter Jackson come to a conclusion in the Canadian original series finale of Wingin’ It premiering Saturday, May 25 at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT. As the boys prepare for their high school prom, Family Channel celebrates with a morning of prom-themed episodes from top series Wizards of Waverly Place, Gravity Falls, Jessie and Good Luck Charlie beginning at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT. Immediately following the finale is a special presentation of High School Musical 3: Senior Year at 12 p.m. ET/PT.
In the final episode, titled “Live and Let Fly,” Porter deals with an aching back while the teachers and students get ready for Bennett High’s prom. Carl asks Jane to be his date and Brittany runs for Prom Queen with Serge as her Prom King. Meanwhile, Denise finally receives her A.I.T. assignment.
For the past three seasons, Wingin’ It has seen Angel-In-Training (A.I.T.) Porter Jackson help Carl Montclaire, a disaster-prone high school student, navigate the halls of Bennett High. To earn his wings and become a full fledged angel, Porter was tasked with transforming Carl in to the most popular kid in school. But this seemingly simple task was often hindered by Porter’s side-tracked schemes and multiple magical mishaps, making this mission more difficult than expected. Now, with graduation in sight and everything finally falling into place, the unlikely duo prepare for the biggest – and hopefully best – night of their lives.
The fun continues at Family.ca where fans can play Wingin’ It themed games and catch up on past episodes. Throughout the month of May, devilish and angelic audiences alike can watch favourite episodes from the entire series on Family OnDemand. The final episode will be available May 31.
Wingin’ It stars Dylan Everett as Carl Montclaire; Demetrius Joyette as angel-in-training Porter Jackson; Brittany Adams as Carl’s friend Jane; Hannah Lochner as Brittany, the most popular girl in school; Sebastian Hearn as the jock, Serge; Brian White as tagalong friend Alex; Wayne Thomas Yorke as Dr. Cassabi; and Kendra Timmins as Denise. Jenn Robertson plays Carl’s mom Angela and Jamie Bloch plays Carl’s little sister, Becky.
Commissioned by Family Channel, Wingin’ It is produced by Temple Street Productions and is executive produced by Frank van Keeken (The Next Step, Kids in the Hall, Billable Hours), Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (The Next Step, Orphan Black, Being Erica).
