If you've watched one of our shows or met me in person, you know I am not one of those characters. In fact, I'm amazed they let me on TV at all. In real life, I'm usually the quiet one in the corner. I prefer listening to speaking, and the only rooms I own are the ones in my house.
This past week, Beyonce released her music video for "Love on Top" and Drake took it all with his Saturday Night Live performance. I had to dig through the noise and find a few other videos that are totally worth sharing.
Maybe some people like to feel superior by laughing at the characters on these shows, but by choosing to waste their time on such drivel, they inadvertently demonstrate their own lack of discernment.
I love shows like The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island that suspend my (dis)belief; it's the shows that seem all too real that I find hard to watch. Teen Mom and Jersey Shore folks; Beverly Hills Housewives and Bachelors being paid to look for love... they're all pretty disturbing.
Don't Canadian networks have a duty and an obligation to get us more involved in caring and rooting for other talented (or at least entertaining) Canadians instead of just watching Canadian commercials during American shows?
