The second round of the NHL playoffs are in full swing, the perfect time to hold our own little set of playoffs—with a distinct Canadian TV flare. Unlike the Stanley Cup playoffs, however, TV, Eh’s Great Canadian TV Playoff boasts solely homegrown head-to-head matchups of television shows.
Starting today and through the rest of the month, we’ll pit eight television shows (just like the NHL) from the 1970s, 80s, 90s and 2000s against one another until the final showdown to name the top Canadian TV series of all time on May 29.
It all kicks off with the 1970s (voting for the 1980s begins Thursday), so cast your vote now and spread the word.
