Made in Canada
The alluring fantasy show about a sexy succubus named Bo (Anna Silk) has made waves across the globe, even though Season 1 only aired in Canada. At one point, it was among the top 10 illegally downloaded shows in the world, demonstrating that Bo's powers of seduction transcend cultural differences. Our friends south of the border will get to start watching Season 1 in January, when 'Lost Girl' will begin airing on SyFy.
In Season 2, Bo is becoming more adept at reining in her succubus powers, and she's learning how to navigate the fae politics with a tad more finesse. She still has BFF Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) by her side, and she's still torn between two lovers, Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid) and Lauren (Zoie Palmer). But that doesn't mean all is status quo in this complex fae underworld. We caught up with the delightful Silk to get all the delicious details.
With the threat of a double elimination looming, 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada's Top 8 put everything on the line Monday. No one disappointed, but in the end, ballroom dancer Denitsa Ikonomova and jazz dancer Adam LoPapa were cut.
This morning, the talented twosome spoke exclusively to AOL TV Canada about clothes, sex appeal and owning the stage.
The show follows the Secret Service personnel tasked with working at Warehouse 13, which is home to every bizarre (and potentially dangerous) artifact the U.S. government has ever collected. In Season 3, newcomer Aaron Ashmore joins the cast as the warehouse's latest recruit.
We caught up with Saul Rubinek ('Frasier, 'Unforgiven'), who plays warehouse caretaker Artie Nielsen, to pry as many details about Season 3 out of him as possible. It was not an easy task. Like his character Artie, Rubinek is skilled at guarding secrets.
Fan Expo 2011 Day 4: Malcolm McDowell the Teacher, Robert Englund Casts Luke Skywalker and William Shatner Takes Charge
Couldn't squeeze it in to your weekend schedule? Thankfully, we were there in your stead, so why not find out what you missed? After all, just because you couldn't attend, doesn't mean you can't pretend...
So, what are you waiting for? I can hear you salivating with anticipation from here. Read on, my friend -- Read on!
Fan Expo 2011 Day 1 & 2: Kevin Sorbo as Superman, Elvira Tampons, and Vincent Price Turns 100 (Sorta)
Your favorite cult TV and film stars of the sci-fi, horror, fantasy and superhero genres come up to Toronto every year, and 2011 is a doozy already. Guests in past years have included Alice Cooper, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart and Elijah Wood, so if you're a fanboy or fangirl, you just have to be here.
Couldn't score a ticket? Don't worry, AOL TV has you covered with a play-by-play of the very best happenings each day throughout the weekend.
Alas, with viewers now voting on individual dancers instead of couples, ballroom's Francois Pruneau and Yuliya Zavadska were sent home. The two obviously have a lot to be proud of and spoke with AOL TV Canada about finding their rhythm, nicknames and their fellow contestants.
The anniversary fare kicked off this past Sunday night with the broadcast of '1 Day,' a two-hour special that documents a day (April 30, to be precise) in the life of Canadians from coast-to-coast, from soprano sensation Measha Brueggergosman in Toronto to 5-year-old Kaizen in Burnaby.
Chances are you haven't seen anything quite like '1 Day' before. The special features a unique blend of footage by pros and home videos submitted by hundreds of Canadians, including Kaizen's dad Stephen Rowe. If you missed '1 Day' on Sunday, don't despair. It will air again on Saturday on CBC News Network, and on CBC Television in November.
At Etobicoke's Mastercard Centre, recruited hockey stars Cale Hulse, Wade Belak, Curtis Leschyshyn and Brad May, along with figure skating pros Marie-France Dubreuil, Marcy Hinzmann-Harris and Anabelle Langlois, are participating in some on-ice boot camp. It's the first time the hockey players have slipped into figure skates, so it's with mixed (and often hilarious) results. Poor May landed flat on his butt multiple times and Belak took a sudden dive, face first, during a lap around the rink.
Laughing it off, the professionals' humor and determination warmed the chilly building. AOL TV Canada was on-hand to discover seven things 'Blades' fans should know for the third season of 'Battle of the Blades.'
More comics, more anime and more sci-fi -- what more could a genre geek ask for? Last year's wraparound lineups and record-setting crowds finally persuaded the people behind Toronto's annual genre convention -- Fan Expo --to add an extra day. It now starts on Thursday instead of Friday, and runs from August 25 to 28.
Good thing too, since there are more high-profile guests and "one time only" events than there have ever been. Whether you're a fan of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, gaming or all of the above, there is bound to be something for everyone.
Comic fans are in for some big announcements from Marvel and DC, and horror fans will get an exclusive screening of 'Near Dark,' the cult horror film from Best Director Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow. Plus, William Shatner returns to the big screen with documentary 'The Captains,' which features interviews with everyone who has ever piloted the Starship Enterprise.
This is just a taste of what's to come at this year's Fan Expo. For the true highlights of this year's convention, hit the jump.
It was crunch time this week on 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada.' With the top 10 almost in their grasp, the remaining 12 contestants held nothing back Monday night. Considering all the amazing talent left, it's getting harder to even fathom anyone going home but ultimately, contemporary dancers Geisha Chin and Joey Arrigo were eliminated.
Nonetheless, the two were all smiles Wednesday morning and spoke to AOL TV Canada about the results, their performances and who has a good shot at winning this competition.
Lovable Canadian adult contemporary singer Jann Arden has been a bit under-the-radar lately, but she's getting back in the saddle (like all good Prairies girls do) to judge the TV singing contest 'Canada Sings.'
Along with fellow judges Rob Van Winkle (a.k.a. Vanilla Ice) and Pierre Bouvier (Simple Plan), Arden is appearing on this six-part original series. The show challenges ordinary Canadians to form glee clubs with their co-workers and compete against another workplace team for a $10,000 donation to their charity of choice.
AOL TV caught up with Arden to talk about 'Canada Sings,' what being a judge is all about and why she's done with all things 'Idol.'
Maybe they will when they see who's in the cast for the small screen version -- it's a collection of some of the brightest, smartest and creepiest actors working. And I mean that in the most complimentary way. With Josh Lucas as Mitch, Molly Parker as his wife Abby, Callum Keith Rennie as brother Ray and Juliette Lewis as assistant Tammy, we viewers will never be able to trust a single one of them.
