Porous Horace: I don't believe English Canadian TV exists anymore; we all watch American shows.
Quebec, where the govt pumps money into the French culture machine, has lots of TV shows. Quebecois watch more American (mostly dubbed) English TV than French from France TV but mostly their own stuff.
I think because as English Canadians we can so easily obtain culture from the giant culture machine next door, that we're stereotypically kind of bland and blase and that we're probaby a bit lazy, that we don't do much of our own stuff. Or just bad copies of better American stuff (Littles Hobo notwithstanding).
The French have little choice; if they don't do it for themselves no one else will.

The govt money  must explain why Quebec has such high production values on some of its shows.
 There some excellent  TV here. I got Fortier on DVD for Christmas a couple of years ago. I don't remember  anything quite like it on American or Canadian TV in its day.
As far as reality shows go, Un Souper Presque Parfait  isn't too bad.  A whole new group of diverse contestants to detest every week.
 For local TV, Montreal's is pretty top notch (if you don't mind seeing the same two dozen stars over and over and over).

The neighbors had a beautiful German Shepherd name Estobo,
named for the show Little estHobo. I thought that was adorable.

Battlestar Galactca produced in Canada with tons of Canadian actors and actresses and writers. I count it.

Kids In The Hall, Second City, You Can't Do That On Television.... and that's all I can remember. I don't watch much TV anymore.

I would say "How It's Made", but I don't really enjoy it as the writers need to be bashed in the face with a Garden Weasel.

Aired in both the US and Canada, but Canada got the better extended-edition of the episodes *shakes tiny fist*

*sigh*... I wish they would have made a movie.. had a huge cult following in it's day.

Aren't nearly all the shows on HGTV and DIY Canadian?

I don't enjoy them but my mom is glued to them all day when I check in on her.

They're not Canadian per se, but a LOT of American written and scripted cartoons are voiced and animated in Vancouver.

Nefarious: Orphan Black

Season 2 starts April 19th

what_now: Orphan Black.


I tried "Lost Girl" for a season and a half. At that point the pretty could no longer counteract the stupid and I had to give up.

This and You Can't Do That on Television. That's also basically how long it's been since I've actually been able to watch television.

Not because I don't have one, though. I'm not that awesome.
