DVD Release: Twitch City

twitch.jpgTwitch City: Complete Series

This 2 DVD set contains thirteen bouts of episodic behavior that aired on CBC and Bravo in the US. Tony-winner Don McKellar (The Drowsy Chaperone) created this quirky comedy that explores society’s addiction to television. McKellar stars as Curtis, who ingests dangerous levels of cathode rays, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend Hope (Molly Parker, Deadwood) and other inhabitants of his downtown home. There’s a lot of wandering around in bathrobes while surfing the dial looking for existential meaning in the daily quotidian of dreck that filters into the living room, thanks to on-screen appearances from Kids in the Hall Mark McKinney and Bruce McCullough.
