Comments and queries for the week of Dec. 19

It’s getting to the end of the year, Canadian TV viewers, and we marked that milestone by asking you to choose your Top 3 Favourite Canadian TV Shows of 2014. At the time of this story publishing, over 15,000 votes had been cast for a wide range of programs. Here’s what some of you said about the projects you picked.

Too many top good shows to choose from. I love the crossover stars of Lost Girl and The Listener and Murdoch Mysteries but couldn’t put them all in the Top 3 because Haven is my top choice.–Marcia

Where’s BACKROAD BOUNTY with Marty and Bam Bam???? !!!–Ellen

I love Heartland, It Is the best show I have ever seen.–Sue

Bitten and Heartland!!! Two of the best TV and book series ever! I’m dying to see the new seasons of both coming in early 2015, ahhhhh can’t wait! Love Lost Girl so much too and so sad that this will be their final season but they’ve had a great run and will be missed. :)–Brie

It’s hard to include every series, but the Knowledge Network’s doc series, Emergency Room kicked some butt out here on the west coast.–Dave

Meanwhile, the deep analysis has begun with the return of Lost Girl.

Demeter causing people to scream in horror kind of very easily gels if you ask me. She’s the goddess of the harvest, not the hearth (that’s her sister Hestia) and when Persephone was first taken from her she went on a rampage and held the entire earth hostage by blighting it until even Zeus bowed down, paid tribute and returned her daughter for half the year, according to the Homeric Hymns. (There was also an incident of trying to replace the other Olympian gods and her daughter by making mortal babies immortal, but she failed and just started chucking them on the ground instead.)–Fudgy

Video: Bitten Season 2 airdate announced

From Space Channel:

Bitten returns Saturday, Feb. 7, at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT on Space.

Based on the New York Times best-selling novels by Canadian author Kelley Armstrong, BITTEN follows Elena Michaels, the world’s only female werewolf in a recognizable world where werewolves and witches live among humans.

Season 1 of BITTEN tested Elena’s (Vandervoort) strength and pushed her to embrace her fierce inner wolf. From the Mutt uprising orchestrated by Pack leader Jeremy Danvers’ (Greg Bryk) father Malcolm, to finding the severed head of ex-boyfriend Phillip (Paul Greene) in her bed, Elena is out for blood. Reunited with The Pack and her true love Clay Danvers (Greyston Holt), nothing stands in the way of protecting her family and hunting down those who seek to destroy them. Season 2 sees The Pack on the hunt for Malcolm (James McGowan). In their quest to capture him, they uncover a more sinister force that threatens the existence of the werewolf species. This season also introduces The Pack to a Coven of witches with whom they are forced to form an uneasy alliance in order to fight a common foe.


First look: Bitten Season 2 poster is bloody good

Looks like Season 2 of Bitten is going to be bloody good. We snagged this exclusive first look at the poster for the sophomore go-round, featuring Elena (Laura Vandervoort).


As previously announced, Bitten is currently in production in and around the Toronto area. Back for Season 2 are Greg Bryk as Alpha Pack leader Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt as Clayton Danvers, Steve Lund as Nick Sorrentino and Michael Xavier as Dr. Logan Jonsen. Season 2 also introduces a coven of witches who turn to the Pack for support: Tammy Isbell is coven leader Ruth Winterbourne, Tommie-Amber Pirie is Ruth’s daughter, Paige, and Kiara Glasco plays Savannah Levine.
