As for Zoe and Griff, I never bought into them as a couple. I always found their pairing a tad contrived with zero chemistry and much too rushedâ€“they moved in together way too soon. Also, Griff needs to spend a heck of a lot more time sober before he can even think of being in a relationship. He really should have stayed living with his father. Iâ€™m really disappointed that the writers decided to make Griff relapseâ€“hopefully theyâ€™ll be able to write his character back to better health soon.
I really hope Cutler stays at Beth-H. I really think the character was a great addition to the show and we only just met him. And I will be mad if Mel is gone because the best parts of the show are her interactions with her sister but I doubt sheâ€™s leaving.
We saw a brief glimpse of Bruno. I feel heâ€™s a sorely underused character that I want to know more about.
I am really liking Remedy this year. I think itâ€™s caught its stride. I look forward to it week after week and I watch the show soon after it airs which is more than I can say for a lot of Canadian shows. â€”Alicia
Kids of Degrassi StreetÂ andÂ The Forest RangersÂ are on DVD, thoughÂ TFRÂ is likely out of print and wasnâ€™t released past the first season. The only shows on that list that have â€œproperâ€ DVD representation areÂ FrightensteinÂ andÂ SCTV.
One show people remember that should have replacedÂ The Trouble with Tracy: Global/TVOntario seriesÂ Witness to Yesterday. That was a show from Globalâ€™s initial 1974 season which endured in reruns, IIRC. â€”Cameron
I have a Monoprice antenna thatâ€™s OK. I can only get one channel, though. Sometimes if Iâ€™m lucky, I can get a second. I think a large part of my problem is because I live at the bottom of a hill. Iâ€™m interested to try the Micron XG (or the Winegard). So, Iâ€™d like to be entered into a draw for the XG.Â These days, I rely mostly on Internet streams from the broadcasters and Netflix (on my Apple TV). â€”Tim
I miss TV for my Jays games. To finagle a better wifi connection, Iâ€™ve done plenty of trial and error walking about the condo. The Micron XG might be just the right size for all that walking! â€”JaysGirl
This information is great, these would be the only channels Iâ€™d want to get. Iâ€™ll have to think about investing in an antennae.
Please review more, itâ€™s difficult enough to know what streaming devices stream what without having to double check if the article is about the U.S. version. It took a few articles and waiting before I found out both the ChromeCast and AppleTV in Canada wouldnâ€™t get HBO NOW. It would be very appreciated. â€”Smoonie
If weâ€™re looking beyond contemporary series, I definitely agree about Slings & Arrows. And I was on the fence about Blackstone for the first two seasons, but then watched all of the third season over a week or so (sort of binging) and got into it more. So either it had found itâ€™s groove, or itâ€™s a series that benefits from immersing yourself in it.
And since a binge-able series is, perhaps, ideally one that has a story arc and develops from episode-to-episode I might suggest a kind of dark horse â€” Peter Benchleyâ€™s Amazon. This was a Canada-U.S. co-production circa 2000 that was kind of Lost before there was Lost. Next to no oneâ€™s heard of it, and maybe I remember it unduly well, but it was a weird, ambitious series with a complex, evolving storyline ideal for binging (though was cancelled after one season). It was released to DVD at one point.
And speaking of weird and ambitious â€” ZOS: Zone of Separation was an R-rated 2008 mini-series about U.N. peacekeepers that can best be described as Apocalypse Now meets Deadwood. Worth keeping an eye out for â€” though good luck, as Iâ€™m not sure itâ€™s in circulation much. Which, admittedly, kind of defeats the purpose of recommending it here! â€”DK
