On the Tube

With the fall TV season now underway, I thought I'd take some time to preview some exciting new shows this fall:

Lost: A plan with all 307 members of parliament crashes over the Pacific Ocean...and no one looks for them.

Desperate House: A Party in power resorts to every possible tactic to hold on to power: canceling opposition days, Cabinet posts for defectors, ignoring non-confidence votes, and pleading for time on National TV.

Everybody Loves Michaelle: See what wacky hijinx will happen at Rideau Hall this week when a former FLQ member comes for dinner!

Law & Order: Sponsorship - Jean Brault and Chuck Guite stand trial (this show has been postponed until the spring).

Alias: Starring Gurmant Grewal.

The Apprentice: Every week, 10 Liberal and Tory leadership hopefuls compete at a series of challenges such as taking over riding associations and stacking nomination meetings, for the right to replace their lame duck party leaders.

Seinfeld: Paul Martin's vision of Canada is explained in this show about nothing.

Everybody Hates Steve: A look inside the Globe & Mail newsroom.

The Biggest Loser: Joe Clark makes his return to the Canadian airwaves

That 70s Show: A Liberal/NDP coalition spends like it's 1973!

  • well I do think that some of the things you mentioned are true but man are you sure you are a liberal.

    Of course he is. Can't you tell by the way he's able to think for himself?

  • Even a Liberal can poke fun at Liberals...especially when the guys in power give them plenty of targets to aim for.

  • Hahah, awesome.

    Queer as Folk: This week, Myron Thompson wakes up from a bad bender next to Svend Robinson. Guest appearance by Elsie Wayne. (22 Minutes fans experience collective deja vu.)

    Canadian Idol: Singing Tories provide us with anthems, including "Na Na Hey Hey", and Brian Pallister sings his rendition of "Another Brick in the Wall", which was prohibited by the Speaker.

    So You Think You Can Dance?: Belinda Stronach and Tim Murphy do the Dance of Betrayal.

    Futurama: A show about Canada 1000 years in the future. Canadians still bitch about Americans (despite the fact that America wiped itself out centuries ago), Quebec is on the verge of breaking away in the 248th referendum on separation - and they really, really mean it this time! - and the Liberals have ruled successively since 1993.

  • Over on QuebecHarperManiac TV, we offer:

    Coronation Street - A show about how Paul Martin pushed everyone out of the Liberal party just so he could take over.

    The Wiggles - this acclaimed kids show from Australia is about slimy politicians who manage to elude responsibility for the waste and corruption they create.

    The Office - you don't need to know any of the cast members to be appointed to the senate... (until November sweeps).

    Desperate Housewives - housewives of citizens who receive letters from the PM proclaiming how hot they are try to get over the fact that the creepiest PM in history has his "eye" on them.

    Trading Spaces - about Tories who become insta-cabinet ministers for switching parties. Meanwhile, loyal backbench Grits are kept in the shadows because they are too ugly for prime-time.

  • What about 'The Prime Minister's Office' aka the PMO on NBC? Something about a bumbling, dithering boss played by Steve Carell

  • What night is Invasion on? The show where left-wing "aliens" invade Canadian politics, with flashbacks to the first alien. P.E. Trudeau who was sent to conquer Canada. The scene showing Paul Martin was particularly disturbing as he morphed into an alien when he became P.M.

    Most of the beginners and the advanced players will all certainly permeated the name ABC poker, which is simple and most effective way of playing the low and mid stakes, no bluffs, set traps and playing weak systems. Written about a lot of articles and even books, and yet time and again the players commit the cardinal errors resulting from poor to adapt the game to the weak opponents.
    Will Hutchinson
    Bluff calling stations, use slow play on players who have never bet on or try to play a very complex lines (ways Pending stock) at a higher level of thinking (I have it, so if he thinks that I have it, it will play into thinking that I think he meant ...) without realizing that the opponent is not thinking, and so it will not play any gains and losses at the most. Free poker bankrolls for UA players.
    That is why we would like to once again bring the iron rules of the game ABC and emphasized that all other methods do not exercise at low and mid stakes as well as checking the ABC. If someone loses at low rates, is at 100% for a lot of scheming and not playing as it should.
    Just above it is interesting BUT!, With weaker poker players do not realize, even there 95% of the texas holdem poker hands is a solid, Tight, aggresive poker! These are all great hand with television, a huge bluff, heroic verify the fourth pair are all torn hands with thousands of other monotonous, strong competition ABC!
    Marry Scott Olson visit this portal and he like content.
    It gives the opponent a free poker card: Nothing worse there is no way to give BB (the player in the big blind position) to catch something strong after Limpia (ie, exercising in the pool and not raise) with AA, KK, or other good hand pre-flop. Just choose the wrong to give someone with a strong hand on the flop two pair or a straight.
