  • The rise and fall of The Ellen DeGeneres Show

    Let’s go back to 2003. It was a tough year: there was The Columbia disaster, the Iraq War started, and the pandemic SARS was scary for a lot of people (and in Toronto we had the Blackout!). It was post-9-11 and we all needed a lift. Enter The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Hosted by Ellen DeGeneres,…

  • Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Oprah just made television history

    Anyone who knows me in my personal life knows that I’m a fan of the monarchy. I wouldn’t exactly say that I’m a monarchist… I’m more of a royalist. Specifically – I’ve always been a fan of Queen Elizabeth II. When people think of the Royal family they often think of me and over the…

  • Let’s talk about Ginny & Georgia

    There is a lot to talk about when it comes to Ginny & Georgia because this is a completely BONKERS show but in all the best ways and I loved it. Ginny & Georgia is a mother-daughter show often described as Gilmore Girls 2.0. I think that’s lazy. Sure you’ve got the double G alliteration,…

    In one of the first scenes of Moxie Vivian (Hadley Robinson) stares at her computer pondering her college essay question: “Reflect on a cause you feel passionate about.
