What Sue’s Watching – Playing PVR Catch-up

  Last week saw a lot of epic television, but I’m going to try and focus on a few in particular this time – especially the ones that I inadvertently left out last post. Lost Girl – Tim usually writes the episode recaps, and while I thought of trying to write one for last week’s…

Current TV Shows I Most Enjoy – Part I

I was going to try and come up with a clever title or gimmick for this, like Sue’s Top 12 of 2012, or something.  But I didn’t want to restrict myself with a number, and the fact is, one of the reasons we started the Mind Reels was because we felt that things we loved…

Happy 1st Birthday for The Mind Reels!

When I was younger, physically and chronologically, not mentally, I often thought about talking and working with people in the entertainment industry. I also thought about being a starship captain like James T. Kirk or walking with dinosaurs, but hey, one dream at a time. Growing up, I was not necessarily an outsider, but I…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

Huse Madhavji

This week, Sue and I had the opportunity to have a quick phone chat with one of the stars of the new hit CTV show Saving Hope. Huse Madhavji, who plays Doctor Shahir Hamza alongside Erica Durance, Michael Shanks and KC Collins, took time out of his schedule to share some of his thoughts on…

Lost Girl Season 3… Hints?

So Tuesday afternoon I got a press release about Season 3 of Lost Girl getting underway. All well and good, we knew it was coming, but then, the more I read the more I found out cool stuff I didn’t know… I knew I loved the show, I know Sue loved it, and I know…

Lost Girl Season Finale Viewing Party!

  This evening, Sue and I are going to join a group of fans for dinner, drinks and to enjoy a viewing party which will not only include the season finale of Lost Girl, but the airing of the pre-show as well, for which most of us were present. That in itself is pretty damned…

Not Live from the Dal! It’s The Lost Girl Finale Pre-Show!

In a quiet, unassuming, little grey building on the west side of Toronto, Sue and I stepped into the heart of the Fae world. I was going to say the Fae world itself, but we get a lot of that actually wandering around the city. But anyway, after a little bit of waiting in a…

Lost Girl Pre-Show Taping!

Sue and I are off to to the studios where Lost Girl is shot today, to join a small select audience of fans for the taping of a pre-show special to air next week before the season 2 finale airs on Showcase. Very exciting. We’re not sure where it’s being shot, but I know hope…

The Lost Girl Pre Show Taping

  So Sue and I got some great news today! We were selected to join the small audience chosen to attend to the taping of the Lost Girl Finale Pre-Show! We actually had a huge geek out at work, much to everyone’s amusement. We got a quiet little email from Showcase notifying us we had…

Anna Silk Chats with Tim

Ok, first off, I am nowhere near as awesome as Sue when it comes to the self-shots… But here it is folks! Anna had time to sit down and do a quick phone chat with me. Sue wasn’t able to make it, but we’re looking forward to a next time! Unfortunately, my side of the…

Episode 6 – An evening with Rick Howland & Nadia Bassett

Episode 6. Welcome to it folks! This week, Sue and I got to sit down and talk with the man himself, Rick Howland. Known to genre fans as Trick from Lost Girl. We sat down with he and his wife Nadia at The Factory Girl on The Danforth for an evening of drinks and dinner….
