Lots of great scifi tv came out of Canada :-) So much tv is made there whether Canadian or not, but especially genre shows. I've started feeling like some of the Canadian actors are old friends, after seeing them in so many shows :hihi:

Yep, Canada is where most scifi is made for a long time.

Living close enough to the border to get a signal Canadian television and radio were very much a part of life for me back in the 70's. I can remember so much anti-american sentiment on canadian television and radio it was crazy. I had a hard time believing Byron MacGregor was actually Canadian after the speech he made because it was in complete contradiction to every canadian tv program be it news, drama, comedy or something else. Even recently if you watch certain Canadian TV made for Canada and not the states you'll see some serious anti-american sentiment at work. As an example The Border - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0896527/

But I digress. When american broadcast television started going 24 hours to compete with cable. They didn't have enough shows to fill the odd hours. It was then I started seeing CBC shows rebroadcast on local CBS and independent affiliate stations. CBS apparently didn't know that Windsor and Detroit were the same market. This lead the way for more Canadian shows in the states.

It's a heck of a lot cheaper to shoot a show in. British Colombia, Manitoba or Ontario then it is in California or New York. Some of it is wage based and some of it has to do with the real estate market and business climate.

Canadian Drama has certain elements of compassion and community that are lost in American Television. They are in general... Nicer as are Canadians themselves.

I wanted to like it, and some of it later on I did, but certain of the characters rang false to me, or I just really didn't like them. It didn't have that heightened sort of cartoon thing of the original, so in terms of a more mundane ST it left a lot to be desired for me, I heard a lot of lines that just fell flat (or a more emotional scene that felt forced) and some of it was the actor's fault I felt. Kind of small-screen actors as they used to say, lacking presence.

I liked Bakula in Quantum Leap, helped as he was by Dean Stockwell, but he didn't elevate this by his presence and was just kind of there. I thought the doctor here was Neelix-like enough, tbh.
The song at the beginning was a terrible thing to set the scene for it, I'm already very annoyed.

I would blame directors WAY before blaming actors.

hibs if you want all the ST's you have to get Netflix, Or Amazon Instant which has TNG in remasterd HD.
It's very jarring to see the bolts they used to fasten stuff on the bridge. And the cheap carpet. Bolts in the 24th century - who knew?

The way everything is getting cheap-ass in manufacturing, do you really think the future WON'T look like boxy, ugly, particle board, ugly bolts, and cheap carpet?

I once trolled the idea of getting net flix years ago and caught a virus :shrug: (only one I've ever had) so I'm nervous about trying again :hihi:

I get it over my bluray player. I refuse to watch anything on a computer when I have a 50 inch 3D TV.

Sometimes I wish I would get Netflix. So many great shows and movies on there.

Everything else is just low-quality and German only dub crap streamed through the net.
