My Top 5 TV Shows of 2011

December 10, 2011

Since most shows have wrapped up for the holiday hiatus already, I figured why not get a jump of the top ten lists?  Mind you, I’ll only be doing 5 since my TV viewing has dropped a lot, since I don’t have AMC or Showcase and the Networks have decided to start going with garbage […]

My Best TV Shows of 2010

December 8, 2010

5. The Office The Office is no longer the biting satire it once was, but has settled down into the role of the comfortable comedy. This year the show took a dip for me, mostly by the growing smugness of Jim and Pam, the two characters we’re supposed to relate to most, and the growing […]

Spoiler warning: If you have not seen the finale of a particular show you plan on watching, spoilers may be given, so just skip to the next one. 10. The Sopranos – “Made in America” First I must admit that I was not a regular watcher of this highly-acclaimed HBO series.  However, I think that […]

30. Oscar Leroy Series: Corner Gas (CTV) Portrayed by: Eric Peterson Oscar Leroy is the cranky, old curmudgeon of Dog River, SK, and along with his cantankerous behaviour comes a lot of laughs. Oscar can be as giddy as a school girl one minute and then as grumbling as an old bear the next. 29. […]

40. Hiro Nakamura Series: Heroes (NBC) Portrayed by: Masi Oka Hiro was both the comic relief of this superhero based drama, as well as the heart at the core of it all. He was pretty much the only one who legitimately wanted to be a super hero and his enthusiasm was always fun to watch. […]

My Top 15 Episodes of the Decade

January 17, 2010

15. Heroes – “Company Man” In the first season of Heroes, audiences, including myself, were captivated with the intriguing storylines and plot twists the show offered, as well as the slow-building tension across the season arc. But in the episode “Company Man, just over the halfway point of the season, we were also hit with […]

10. Entourage (HBO) HBO’s hit comedy about the day-to-day life of a movie star has become one of those consistent, comfortable comedies whose characters feel like old friends to revisit each season. 9. Corner Gas (CTV) Though many have not heard of this show, being a Canadian-made comedy about a town in Saskatchewan, it is […]
