“The Listener isn’t a very good example of a high-quality American import. Mainly because it’s Canadian, but more importantly because it’s rubbish. In fact even the title is rubbish. You know why it’s called The Listener? Because the main character listens to things.” Read more.

I’m really enjoying this excellent new show! A refreshing and quality watch when so much else is not worth it. If you haven’t checked this show out yet you really should. Only on the 3rd episode at the time I’m writing this, but I hope they keep up the good work.
I’ve seen several epsiodes already, and I’m loving this show more and more!
I actually stumbed on this feed as I was searching for season 2’s air time. CB’s comment, “You know why it’s called The Listener? Because the main character listens to things,” jerked a sarcastic chuckle from me as American show titles such as The Mentalist and Psychic came to mind. Enough said.
