2014 Toronto Screenwriting Conference

Wow. Sue and I were fortunate enough to be able to cover the Toronto Screenwriting Conference last year (and learned tons to apply to our own creative writing) and were delighted to be invited back again this year to sit in on it again. With the amazing guest line-up and the fact that everything we…

Chatting with Continuum’s Rachel Nichols

  Sue and I were very delighted to be invited to Showcase to sit down and chat with the star of the hit series Continuum, Rachel Nichols alongside Steph Mernagh from Geek Chic Elite. We spoke time travel, tech, what to expect for Kiera Cameron season 3, and our love of a short-lived show called…

Canadian Screen Awards Gala #1 – Press Room Adventures!!

  Thanks to the amazing work at Touchwood PR (you know who you are!), Sue and I were invited to cover the Canadian Screen Awards this week. The week is filled with lots of things for the Canadian broadcast, film and television industry, all of it culminating in the broadcast Sunday evening, hosted by Martin…

Continuum S02E09 – Seconds

  This week’s episode of Continuum tackles one of the age-old questions would you go back in time and kill someone, say Hitler, if you knew that it would save thousands, if not millions of lives? Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is confronted with that very question when Julian (Richard Harmon) is released from prison and slowly…

Continuum S02E08 – Second Listen

  This week, Alec (Erik Knudsen) finds his life in danger as Garza (Luvia Petersen) roars back onto the screen. As Kiera (Rachel Nichols) and Agent Gardiner (Nicholas Lea) run down their leads on the missing bodies, and after a quick visit with Escher (Hugh Dillon) we learn that there are more freelancers in 2013…

Man of Steel (2013) – Zack Snyder

A disappointing mess. That’s what Warner, DC Comics, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have served up. I love the character of Superman! I’ve got comics piled in my apartment featuring the familiar red cape and blue suit, I liked Superman Returns, there are even moments in III that I enjoy (even I won’t touch Quest…

Continuum S02E07 – Second Degree

  This week it’s politics, legal wrangling and lies as Julian (Richard Harmon), Alec’s (Erik Knudsen) step-brother comes up for trial for his actions last season, including the shooting of Carlos (Victor Webster). And before I go any further, since I’ve mentioned Carlos lets talk about how he’s handling the fact that he’s now learned…

Continuum S02E06 – Second Truths

  As I went into watching this episode, there came the announcement that Season 3 is a go. That’s a great thing, BUT, it also tells us Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) does not get back to the future by season’s end, we also know that she’s around for the next season, so hopefully we at…

Continuum S02E05 – Second Opinion

  We get a bit of a bottle show this week for Continuum, as almost all of it seems to take place in the Vancouver Police Department, or in Alec’s (Erik Knudsen) new digs, supplied to him by Kellog (Stephen Lobo). Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is having a tough time, if she were in 2077, today…

Continuum S02E04 – Second Skin

  In what could have been a goofy and silly episode – geeky civilian gets hold of a CPS suit, this week’s ep ended up being poignant, thrilling, and continued to move the Liber8 splinter groups agenda forward. In the future segment, we get to see Kiera (Rachel Nichols)on a simulation that sees her freezing…

Continuum Catch-Up

  After trips, film festivals and catching up with some dear friends, I finally had time to catch-up on my Continuum, as season 2 started while I was away. So I settled in and caught up on the 3 episodes I’d missed so far. The first thing I realized was that despite having a huge…

Last Week In Television (April 14-20)

Recently, I decided to make a list of all the shows that regularly grace my television screen, just to see how many there actually are.  Not every show airs during the same parts of the year, so I’m obviously not watching every single show, every single week.  I’m not even sure that would be possible,…
