TV, eh? podcast episode 13: The Tudors and Todd

Episode 13: Listen or download here or subscribe via iTunes or with any other program via the TV, Eh? feed

There’s not one but TWO interviews in this podcast … one with Torrance Coombs of The Tudors (Wednesdays on CBC), Endgame and JPod, and another with co-creators Craig David Wallace and Charles Picco of Todd and the Book of Pure Evil (premiering September 29 on Space).

Anthony and I also talk about premiere week – the hits and misses, American and Canadian style – and the latest Canadian shows premiering soon or in production now. Check out TV, eh? for all the news.

I also point people to Kate Taylor’s excellent Atkinson Series on Canadian culture in the digital age, in the Toronto Star. Go read it. All. Now.

In the news: jPod worth seeking out

From Just Press Play:

  • Great Shows You’ve Never Seen: “jPod”
    “Have you ever heard of the author Douglas Coupland? He writes novels with a comical nod to pop culture, though the main plot might be gravely serious. In the case of jPod, it was just another book about that generation of young professionals who graduated in an era when computer science was the hottest destination under the sun. Coupland wrote a few books about this generation (they’re all worth checking out), but only jPod found its way as a television show. Guess what? You probably never heard of it. But you really ought to seek it out.” Read more.
