Superheroes fail on television

Last week, NBC unveiled its superhero series The Cape with a two-hour premiere not once, but twice. It’s been promoted for weeks and blanketed four hours in just two nights. But that’s no guarantee of success.

Oh, the horror!

As Halloween slides eerily out of the mist, I’m noticing a different mood this year in the media. Only a handful of programs are ringing in the ghouls and goblins in their own way. Glee is doing a Rocky Horror dress-up.

Local food focus of TV documentary

Recently, the True North Community Co-operative opened in the Bay Street area offering products from local producers.

Death too easy on TV

This past week, I said goodbye to a friend; a dear man who meant a lot to many people. Losing someone, regardless of the warning signs or the time to prepare, is the hardest part of life.

A Golden icon

This Mother’s Day weekend, Betty White is breaking new ground. After being asked three times during her career, the 88-year-old actress is hosting a special Saturday Night Live along with several former SNL cast members of the mom persuasion.
