Monday: Seed, Murdoch Mysteries, Being Human, Wild Things


Seed, Citytv -“Ill Conceived”
Harry (Korson) discovers his trips to the sperm bank (a.k.a. bank machine) as a young man have resulted in kids – lots of them. When the story begins years later, Harry receives a knock on the door from nine-year-old Billy (William Ainscough), a kid with two moms, who has just hacked into the sperm bank’s database. While Harry quickly becomes Billy’s missing father-figure, Harry learns of another offspring, 15-year-old Anastasia (Abby Ross), who instantly idolizes him as the cool parent she thinks she deserves. Though Harry’s eager to reap the benefits of fatherhood – without any of the responsibility – Billy’s and Anastasia’s parents are loath to let him into their lives. Meanwhile, Harry meets Rose (Carrie-Lynn Neales, The L.A. Complex), a beautiful, albeit neurotic, single woman who’s tired of dealing with men and their games, and decides to have a baby on her own. Despite his permanent bachelor lifestyle, Harry comes to believe that his many sessions with that swimsuit catalogue at Cryobank may bring some meaning to his life, a legacy beyond his mastery of video games.
