I thought, what the heck, I'll give Sophie another chance. I'm glad I did. It's definitely settling down. The characters are becoming real sitcom types; Sara Botsford as Estelle remains a fah-bu-lous eccentric; and the cinematography is good. I think I'll keep watching, especially as they've taken a cue from the American networks and scheduled it in after a hit -- Little Mosque on the Prairie.
Earlier this week, I watched The Border -- totally must-see, grab-you-by-the-eyeballs entertainment sans last week's awful epileptic camera work -- and jPod. I don't know what it is about jPod's creators, but they sure are in love with biker bodies. I did get restless in the commercials and so missed a scene here or there. I'm not sure if jPod's going to hold my attention over the long haul, and it'll probably be a combination of needing couch time and nothing else to watch that'll get me tuned in again. Having said that, I have to also say that Sherry Miller is very natural in her eccentric role of a high-brow-pot-grower mom to Ethan and that it's odd seeing a Canadian actor from down south acting in a Canadian show (Alan Thicke), especially in the kind of show that he's so not known for in the US.
Hmmm...looking back at my previous postings, I see I've been rather on a tear about television recently. At this rate, I'll get boring. Next time: a brand-new, not-television, topic! I promise!! (Just don't know what it'll be.)
