The TV Addict is Bitter…

Why you ask? Well I’ll tell you. First off, Canada doesn’t get the F/X Network. As a result, I have no idea what happened on last night’s episode of DAMAGES. Thankfully the show is available on iTunes, so I’ll be able to catch up. But even so, watching the show on my iMac simply isn’t the same as watching it on my beautiful 37″ Sharp Aquos.

Which bring me to ‘why I’m bitter’ reason #2. I have TV envy. My brother just picked up a gorgeous 42″ Panasonic Viera TV for a mere $1599. Less than a year ago I paid $1999 for my measly 37″ TV. Damn you technology, why can’t you ever stay the same!

And finally, reason #3 ‘why I’m bitter’. I recently discovered that Showcase, the Canadian network that owns the rights to WEEDS will not be airing the third season alongside our friends to the south. Turns out fellow Canadians will have to wait until Fall ’07 to enjoy the third season antics of Mary-Louise Parker and Co. As of this moment, Showcase has yet to respond to the TV Addict’s request to be interviewed. But rest assured, if they ever decide to answer my questions with regards to why yet again Cananadian TV viewers are an afterthought, I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

    While your at it:

    Space Channel – No Season 2 of Eureka, currently airing in the US?
    – No Season 3 of the 4400, currently airing in the US?

    CTV – Season 5 of Nip/Tuck almost 6 months later?

    Food Network Canada – No Season 3 of Top Chef, actually reairing Season 2 back to back??

    All these shows should be simulcast in Canada and the US… annoying to say the least :(

    Sorry about Weeds and Damages. Have you tried contacting your FX and Showtime contacts asking if they would send you screeners for upcoming episodes? FX is doing this with me, and I’m sure they’ll be understanding with your situation.
