  • New Television Museum in Toronto a Techo-Temple for the Ages
    Friday May 30th 2014

    Think the iPhone needs a bigger screen? You haven’t watched TV lately… not one of these TVs at any rate. Some of the earliest televisions had a display not much bigger than a postage stamp; they used a magnifying lens to make the image visable. So Apple leader Tim Cook’s[…]

  • Canadian director wins Jury Prize at Cannes for ‘Mommy’
    Thursday May 29th 2014

    Canadian director Xavier Dolan won the Jury Prize for his film “Mommy” at the Cannes Film Festival Saturday, sharing the honour with French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard.

Last week’s announcement that Bell Media and Telefilm Canada are backing Corner Gas: The Movie (coming to movie theatres, followed by TV and DVD, later this year) has stirred up everything from excitement to exasperation. CBC-type exasperation.

  • Why CBC desperately needs a hit TV show
    Wednesday May 28th 2014

    It is something of a cruel joke that the most hyped new show slated to premiere on CBC Television is a sitcom called Schitt’s Creek. The 13-part series sees a wounded and increasingly risk-averse CBC doubling down on the past. It stars SCTV alumni Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara as members of a once wealthy family that’s broke and faced with a humiliating exercise in downsizing.
