In the last week, many Canadian sites and papers have published proper stories about Mr. Dailey (notice I can't call him Mark -- first names are for the Britneys and Angelinas of the world) and so if you are curious about him, get your Google on and have a read, or watch the official Citytv tribute to him, posted on YouTube.
One of the most frustrating things of blogging about US TV series is the fact that I can't watch episodes or most of the webisodes on the official network sites because I live in Canada. I can't even have access to content on Hulu and the like because of International Internet laws (or lack thereof) and distribution rights issues. I don't know all the legalities behind this but I find it weird that on my basic cable set up I have access to US-based channels for all major networks (except The CW) and yet, I can't access the full content of US-based network websites.
Since I've started blogging here on TV Squad, I've read many comments from international readers saying that they can't watch episodes or videos we embedded in our posts. It's irritating to follow a link to a video and see "This episode is currently only available to viewers living in the United States." Therefore, I researched the web to find websites where Canadians could watch US TV series online and in all legality (of course, people in the US can watch episodes online at AOL TV, Hulu, etc.).
Here is a list of "Canadians welcomed" websites that stream US TV shows. You can thank me later.
At Queen Street and John in the heart of downtown Toronto, in front of the ChumCity broadcast facility, is a small booth featuring a video camera, sound equipment, and a coin slot that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For a Canadian dollar (known affectionately as a Looney) you can look right into the camera and speak your mind about anything you want, from current events to shout-outs to your homeys. And, if you are very expressive, funny, poignant, or just pretty damn interesting, there is a chance that your pontifications will be shown on television to the Greater Toronto Area population.
Back in June, when Keith McDuffee talked about G4's Midnight Spank, he mentioned Ed the Sock's Night Party as part of that new block of late-night shows. Night Party stars Ed the Sock, a grumpy cigar-chomping, insult-hurling puppet that was the alleged precursor to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Ed spends his show interviewing (or insulting, depending on your opinion) and making the moves on the many buxom ladies that appear weekly in and out of the hot tub.
