Ottawa, get ready -- Captain Kirk is headed to your city. It was just announced that William Shatner, the Canadian icon and current star of '$#*! My Dad Says,' will host this year's Genie Awards gala. "I'm so looking forward to coming to Canada as the host of the 31st annual Genie Awards and seeing a lot of my old friends," said Shatner in a release issued today. "Unfortunately, most of them...

'Being Erica' Star Erin Karpluk Talks Season 3, and We Meet Erica's New Love Interest

Canadian TV export 'Being Erica,' which follows the misadventures of a woman in therapy, is returning to SOAPnet for its third season. Erica Strange (played by Erin Karpluk) doesn't just "go" to therapy; instead, her therapist makes it possible for her actually travel back in time to relive the events in question. Joining Erica this season is Adam Fitzgerald (played by Adam Fergus), another...

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada' And the Winner Is...

I wouldn't say I'm high-maintenance, I just have high expectations. It takes a lot to impress me. If you've been following my TV Squad posts about this season's SYTYCDC, you'll know I've felt less than satisfied on several occasions -- when Edgar was voted off, from the shameless the plugs for Lise Watier makeup (from what I can tell, it doesn't make anyone look good), from Jean Marc...

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada' Final Four Perform

We're almost there, Canada... Down to the final four of this season of SYTYCDC. At this point, I can barely remember our top 22, but I can't imagine a better ending for this show: Amanda, Denys, Janick and Jeff. Tonight, all four were given the opportunity to show Canada why they should be crowned this season's SYTYCDC champ, performing a solo routine and two duets each. Though there are two...

Recap: Only 4 Left on 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada'

Tonight's 'SYTYCDC' was sort of like a punch in the face. At first it hurt. It started off with this crazy stripper routine choreographed by I-like-to-raise-my-voice-a-bit-too-much Jean-Marc Genereux. The risque routine saw the four gals performing as strippers; the guys were the strip club's patrons clamouring for the ladies' attention. Um. OK....

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada': The Top 8 Perform

We're getting very close to the finish line, Canada. Soon our weeks will be void of the glory that is Leah Miller. That's right, we're down to the Top 8 performers. It's exciting. And though I've lost my favourite dancer, I'm still giving this season's dancers the benefit of my doubt. Here's how I rank the final eight performers....

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada': Onto the Top 8

This sucks. For the past few weeks, I've done a pretty good job of jumping on the bandwagon of this season's top dancers. I haven't shed a tear over losing my fave to Canada's shoddy voting. I've been lucky enough to see the people I've been rooting for perform each week. That all changed tonight. Two of this show's top performers and one of my Top 10 favourites -- Edgar and Charlene -- were...

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada': Your Top 10 Perform

I'm in love with the way this episode started. Not only are we finally onto the Top 10, we're finally -- FINALLY -- judging each dancer based on their own skills. And I love Top 10 lists. So instead of compiling what this show was all about (we get it, they were dancing), I thought I'd let you in on what I think of each of these dancers. Here's how I rank the final 10....

Recap: Meet the 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada' Top 10

Finally, Canada, we've moved onto SYTYCDC's Top 10 dancers. After several nights of moving and grooving, some mediocre moves and even weirder group performances -- we're moving onto the best of the best (or at least that's what we're all hoping for). It's a good sign when we find out that this evening's group performance is choreographed by Mia Michaels. There was chair-jumping, chemistry...

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada' The Top 12 Perform

Last week, I was shocked at how far some of the dancers have come in terms of their skill level. A few are starting to stand out as real contenders for 'SYTYCDC's top spot. This is definitely adding a clear-cut division within the pairings we're seeing -- one dancer really steps it up, while another falls short. I can't think of a better way to describe what I mean than the paso doble...
