The New Biopics: Undistinguished Canadians

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 29th 2010 5:02PM


On Sunday night, I watched 'Keep Your Head Up Kid: The Don Cherry Story' on CBC because, as my beloved said, "We kind of have to, don't we?" I think he was thinking of my job as a Canadian TV columnist, our status as hockey fans or maybe he only meant there wasn't much else on.

But watch it we did (the first half anyway - the rest airs Monday March 29, 8 pm, CBC) and frankly, I thought it was pretty good, and I'm a little surprised about it.

CBC miniseries are not usually my cup of tea. The subjects are usually dead white guys who made Important Contributions to Our Country, which I always feel I'm supposed to know about already.

Don Cherry even agrees with me. "I feel like I should be dead," he said at a press conference for the series. "Don't they usually do these kinds of movies about dead people?"

Chris Gauthier(S02E12) "We are so screwed."

While things could certainly be better for the Winchester boys, fans of Supernatural have nothing to complain about. This was a great episode. It brings to mind conversations I've had with people concerning which episode of Firefly you show to someone to introduce them to the series. I always pick "Our Mrs. Reynolds". And now I would put "Nightshifter" high on the list for giving people a look at Supernatural.

There is quite a bit of back story that leads up to this story, but the episode was done in a way that it will stand on its own very well. All the big elements of the series are in there too. We had ladies man Dean, the brothers arguing, a creepy and mysterious foe, nutty guest star, gorgeous girls, dead bodies, something slimy, great music, and the boys being misunderstood by the authorities. The only thing lacking was for Jared and Jensen to take off their shirts for the ladies, or guys, depending on your tastes.
