Production begins on Season 3 of 19-2

Love this show! 19-2 continues to be Canadian TV’s finest police drama. With full credit to writers and the talented cast, it consistently tells stories that are riveting but also lets us actually feel the emotions of first responders. I can’t wait for Season 3!! —Sandra

oOOOO! Cannot wait! Most excellent news! My fave series these days! (Just don’t tell the guys at Orphan Black I said that!) —Stephen

So glad to hear we can look forward to another season of 19-2. I have enjoyed watching the first two. —Joyce

Amazing Race Canada makes Pit Stop with After the Race

Great! I had a feeling this might happen, just wasn’t totally sure since we have an extra team this year so they have less of a timeframe to wrap the show up before fall TV season starts. This should give the early eliminated a chance to share their feelings on everything, as the one after the finale will focus on the last three teams the most. It’s always been a flaw in Survivor’s reunion show to me, and the U.S. Race has nothing at all so this is an improvement. —Dan
