I am quickly becoming a fan of CBC's "Matching, Hatching & Dispatching"...Friday nights.  Okay...that makes me a loser I guess...home on Friday nights!  It is cute though.

Hey elle* here's the link I posted to that show on the first page of this thread...

http://www.cbc.ca/hatching/

I only watched the pilot, have yet to see the new shows.

Also like I posted earlier I did like the pilot CBC had about another show from Newfoundland called Rabbittown.  They played that during Comedy week not that long ago.  Anyone interested can read about that and "Hatching" here...

Yah, I knew Sherry White was familiar.  I had seen Rabbittown that week and never again.  How sad a show that was...I mean, party gal from NL...who is really stuck in the 80's hairdo, gets dumped...gets a haircut that makes her look older than me..and just worn out, etc.  OMG.  It was cute too though.  Would like to see where that show would have went..storywise.

I bow down to you Shake...you know your Canadian boob tube!

Definately Hatching, Matching and Dispatching! It's friggin' hilarious. I also like Corner Gas, Degrassi, and good ole North of 60. That was one of my faves, at one time.

Hatching, Matching and Dispatching returns tonight after the Olympic break.  I mentioned earlier that Ed MacDonald, the Bible Pimp writes it along with Mary Walsh.  I saw a promo for it and Ed is in the show tonight.  9 pm CBC.

It was also the last episode of the season, and judging by the way the CBC is going, it probably won't be back next season.

I rented Phil the Alien in the fall.  Great Canadian comedy.  Recommended for Trailer Park boy fans.  Special cameo appearance by Ryan Malcolm, Canadian Idol 1 winner.

All I know is that Kids In The Hall was one of the funniest shows of all time and not just one of the funniest canadian shows. SCTV was pretty damn funny and anyone who says they didn't like Degrassi is lying. Fubar is hilarious. I love the part where "Deaner" tries out for the band. I'm really glad someone brought up Twitch City. I thought no one had ever heard of that show. When I was 15 that's how I wanted to be. Do nothing but eat food and watch junk TV all day. That's all I got.
Peace!  :6paper: :ricky:

Put me down as another Twitch City fan (and it's coming out on DVD this year!). Robson Arms is quite good, as is Corner Gas, The Newsroom and This Is Wonderland. Kids in the Hall is brilliant and I can't wait until they release the fifth and final season on DVD so I can complete the series!

If you're looking for some good Canadian films with a humourous bent, I recommend:

Childstar (2004) --Don McKellar's witty sendup of children actors and big Hollywood productions in Canada. KITH's Dave Foley is an exasperated producer and Jennifer Jason Leigh plays McKellar's love interest! McKellar is Canada's greatest actor/writer/director!

The Delicate Art of Parking (2004) --a mockumentary about the life of Vancouver parking-meter attendants, featuring a couple of castmembers of Corner Gas.

The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico (2005) --another mockumentary, this time about a fictional country singer.

It's All Gone Pete Tong (2005) --from the Calgary director of FUBAR, this one's about the exploits of a British DJ.

C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005) --so good that the Americans want to make an English-language remake. It's about a dysfunctional family in Quebec in the 70s, featuring a cool soundtrack of Bowie and other glam rockers.

The Canadian film industry, more than just David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan! ;)

I thought "it's all gone pete tong" was an english movie, show's ya what I know!
Have heard mixed review's of it, it's in the local video store so I best have a look for myself.

I did order DaVinchi's inquest on DVD, it's out of stock in amazon.ca, so I got to wait a month or so.

C.R.A.Z.Y sound's good :-)

Have any of you watched Billable Hours right after TPB? It's not bad. I really like the intro theme song.

Twitch City will finally be coming out on DVD?  Really?  I would love it if that's true and would buy it in a second, but I can't seem to find a single source on the web to back that up (retailers, CBC online store, Don McKellar fan sites, etc...).  Where did you hear this?

BTW, is your last name McKellar ... or is it just a homage to Don McKellar?

Wow this cable channel Country Canada is amazing!  I didn't even know I had it, by the sound of it I thought it was a nature channel, what with the fishing and the hunting, I figured it would all be Red Fisher type stuff.  Apparently it plays many of the shows mentioned in this thread.  As I mentioned in another thread are showing Butch Patterson: Private Dick every weekday, and as I mentioned earlier in this thread it just happens to be one of the best show ever made.  I just found out they are also showing Twitch City itself on Saturday nights, what a channel!!!
