HOUSE OF LIES (Pilot)

House of Lies is a tricky one. As a critic, I try to break things down into components, hopefully arriving at an understanding of what I do and do not enjoy. House of Lies has been difficult to look at this way. For that reason alone, it might be one of the more interesting case […]

It tells the story of a human race that has evacuated Earth in favor of life in space, after an apocalypse-like crisis. They decide […]

Marco Polo, a Netflix drama that premiered on December 12,  follows the historic figure during his early years. So much of Marco Polo’s initial appeal is its mystery, so I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to really say much of the plot. It’s sufficient to know that Marco Polo is, at heart, a show about […]

What follows is my bi-weekly dilemma. I come home from a long day at school and work, totally unwilling to cook for myself. Nobody’s going to cook for me, yet the idea of fast food, or of spicy, pre-packaged ramen noodles sounds too disappointing for my inner gourmet to bear. And I’m broke: I can’t […]

Supernatural television has been an interest of mine for a long time. Despite taking much of its content from horror, it is not necessarily designed with the same goals in mind. By not having to worry about frightening the viewer, supernatural TV is able to explore new and interesting themes regarding already prominent character ideas. […]

Of all the dishes I prepare for myself on a regular basis, there is one in particular that has a special place in my heart, and that is risotto. Risotto is an Italian rice dish famous for its rich, creamy texture, and the amount of stirring involved in its preparation. The rice itself, once cooked, […]

The criteria for this list: 1) The show is Canadian 2) The show has aired a season this year (2014) The shows on this list seem to fly under the radar for many. I’m not sure if that’s a result of them being Canadian or not. One way or another, I think that any one […]
