Jeff, the very best to you in the next transition in your life. I retired two years ago, but before that, I woke up to the AM gang. Loved it, the laughs, the classy ways of all of you. Bev and Marci must feel like their brother is leaving. I’m trusting you that you arenâ€™t hiking off to live with Kelly RipaÂ to replace Michael! KIDDING. Enjoy. â€”Beverley
One of the reasons I watch Canada AMÂ is because of Jeffâ€™s genuine character, sense of humour and all around likability. He gets my day off to a happy start. I am happiest when he, Bev and Marci are all there togetherâ€”you can tell they have a wonderful relationship. He will definitely be missed, but who could deny him a well-deserved retirement? I wish him all the best and hope heâ€™ll drop by Canada AM on Skype or in person, now and again. Happy everything, Jeff! Enjoy every minute in good health. â€”Sharon
I think Kristian Bruun is spectacularly talented, just like Maslany, and is getting a chance to showcase it on this show. Itâ€™s so fun to watch more and more of this couple because they are such a spectacularly dysfunctional, want-to-look-perfect suburban couple. When I first saw the fertility clinic scene, I knewÂ he was going to call her and they would do some role play over the phone. They are so into each other in these weird ways, she really gets off on his neediness … did you catch the admiring glance they threw each other when he said, â€œClear, concise, and colour coded, well done.â€ I thought that was a kind of foreplay for them! Then when he said Air Italia, I thought, ‘Oh, theyâ€™re into accents?!!!!’ ROFLMAO. More serious aspects of show aside, this was just wonderful, as good or better than the money-in-the-bedroom scene. The two lead actors are probably letting improv dictate this chemistry, and the results are fantastic. You get plenty of literary references, both are college educated, they have adopted children of colourÂ specifically. So now we can predict that with Donnie asking Helena to be understanding of his wifeâ€™s envy, that Helena will go out of her way to make Alison feel very included in her pregnancy. Hand on belly and everything. They better do this. Itâ€™s what you do for a sestra, innit?
I LOVE this show and the actors theyâ€™ve assembled are amazing (Jordan, too). Iâ€™m seriously thinking of writing my own weekly blog on this show and a few other semi-sci-fiÂ (highly speculative fiction!) shows I love. I think we will get to see Donnie and Alison get to experience pregnancy through Helenaâ€”we saw an inkling of this when Donnie and Helena went to the ultrasound togetherâ€”they both are giving each other something the other never had: families, and babies. How beautiful is this show on some cosmic level? Amidst all this ugly manipulation, for-profit-minded genetic tampering, and weird subcultures (bifurcated dicks and sister-kissing, no less), there is this amazing undercurrent of love, and of challenging of notions about what constitutes â€œkin.â€ This is what I believe this show is all about on an emotional level. And the biotech angle is just whipped cream on the cake … hey there is an idea for Donnie and Alison to explore! â€”Heather
I have no idea how some of you could talk about Jenâ€™s Live Eye segments as if they were a waste of time. They made the show worth watching. She will be missed greatly by so many of us long time BTÂ viewers for a reason: she was simply fantastic! Charming, funny, enthusiastic, full of energy, personable, beautiful and so on. Good luck Jennifer V. No, I will not be watching BTÂ very much at all anymore. Idiotic decision by The Rogers Corp. to let her go. â€”Todd
I am so sad to hear that BTÂ let Jen go. Well, no more BTÂ and CityLine.Â Back to Canada AM. â€”Mary
