Entertainment and Media

Hey, I was wondering if we should just create a single sticky Cdn entertainment and media thread since several have been created.

Anyway, starting Tuesday there will be a few changes on Cdn TV. Global National is moving to 5:30 after Y&R, so in Edmonton at least they are killing one of the 3 afternoon/evening local newscasts. Also as a test in some markets Canada now is reversing the hours of their local and national newscasts, with the local news starting at 6 with Canada Now at 6:30 but the plans were previously for just a single hour of local news.

Plus, Hatching Matching and Dispatching as well as Getting Along Famously (2 CBC pilots from last year) have started their first seasons with 6 x 30 minutes each. I watched both and they were fairly good. I dunno if anyone else caught them?

I love Video on Trial. It is now my favorite muchmusic program. Ed the Sock's Fromage 2005 was merde this year. I was so dissapointed. Usually I have tears running down my fave from laughing so hard when I was both Video on Trial and Fromage, but not this year, just Video on Trial.

I'm going to completely agree with you there AlbertaBeef. I really knew it when they closed off a street for the cast of house of wax...oh yeah...and then dukes of hazard.

MuchMusic? It's become the "Let's make fun of celebrity channel". They choose the most obvious of celebrities to bash too. Oh what, Britney Spears is a slut? Ya don't say? Then they completely gush over them when one pops in to the studio, the fucking hypocrites.

Behold the grand vision of Moses Znaimer. Behold Ed the Sock mocking a Good Charlotte video... in a completely scripted "this shit sounds like it's been written by 3 12-year-olds" way. Behold me changing the channel after watching 2 minutes of this shit.

Hatching, Matching and Dispatching was HILARIOUS! We need more original comedy shows like that instead of trying to create low budget versions of what you can view on American Television.

I've recently discovered what may be the greatest show of all time, Kenny vs Spenny.

The entire first episode can be seen here

The Tournament on CBC is also a decent (i.e. watchable) program.

Has anyone seen "The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico" yet? I wanted to see it last week, but we went to watch Transamerica instead which I'd recommend even if the only can-con is Kevin Zegers.

BTW, does anyone know how well Falcon Beach is doing in the ratings, and it it just me or is Global playing it 3 times a week now (Wed, Thurs, Sat)

I hear the next one, Da Vinci's Senate, is going to be rather dull. It will feature a lot of doing nothing.



P.S. Kenny vs. Spenny was pretty funny when I used to watch it, what happened to it?

Guy Terriffico is great, especially to a huge Gram Parsons junkie like myself.

It keeps getting bounced around. It went to GSN in the US for a while, then on Showcase, most recently I saw it back on CBC. It's gotten much nastier than I remember it. I love that show. Everyone who hasn't seen it has got to rent "Pitch," which Kenny and Spenny made before the show. It's gold, Jerry, gold!

Alright, Pitch was a documentary they made about trying to pitch a movie script. They wrote a script, I'm certain was not meant to be serious called "The Don" (or maybe it was spelled "The Dawn," not sure) about a Mafia boss who goes in for a routine hernia opperation and accidently ends up with a sex change.
The film is them pitching this script, a lot at the Toronto Film Festival (not sure what year it was) and they started to gain a little notoriety. For example, Roger Ebert knew exactly who they were when they approached him. I believe they were trying to get Eric Stoltz to sign on. They ended up moving to LA and getting agent (who really screwed them in the end.)

They filmed the pilot for Kenny vs Spenny (who can lose the most weight) while in LA.

I noticed that the Twin Cities (MN) CBS affiliate, which I get here in Saskatoon has picked up Da Vinci's Inquest in sindicated form now.
