Taking a break

I just came back from a week off. After a couple of weeks of technical difficulties and extra hours, I needed to get away from it all.

Reality fishbowl

Celebrity Apprentice fascinates me. It’s interesting to take the animal, Celebritus Americanus, out of its natural habitat and drop it into the fishbowl of reality TV. They don’t have their regular schedules or personal assistants.

Oprah finale end of an era

So May 21 wasn’t quite the apocalypse as promised. But really, Harold Camping was only off by a few days. Wednesday, May 25 – maybe not quite the apocalypse, but certainly close. The end of Oprah. And for others, The Rapture.

One of my favourite shows of the past season is ABC’s Castle – which I’m pleased to know has definitely been renewed for the fall. It’s funny, twisted and the mystery in each episode is anything but obvious.

The great Canadian debate

I strongly believe if you don’t vote, you lose the right to complain. I also believe if you don’t know the issues and where everyone stands, then you should inform yourself before you vote.

Alphabet network's richest hour

Recently, ABC relaunched Fox’s failed reality series Secret Millionaire.

Bought, sold and twisted

This past fall, Oprah Winfrey celebrated Thanksgiving with extended family. She had just learned that she had a half-sister, given away at birth.

Just what is normal?

I’m forever feeling more than just a generation gap when I see kids texting on their cell phones, listening to their iPods and wearing more expensive brands than I do. My gut reaction is that this kid is spoiled rotten.

The death of Sgt. Ryan Russell has blanketed the media in recent weeks. First the incident, then the investigation and finally the funeral. It is a tragedy that has touched many. But something seemed out of place.

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.
