Canadian TV Shows eh?!

When people think of their favourite TV shows, often times they point to programming that was created and produced in America. Well we are here to tell you this week that that is a great disservice to all the incredible content coming out of the True North! So join us as Tuong La and Hosers Catherine Ballachey and Alli Harris team up in our very first THREE person podcast to celebrate Top 5 Canadian TV Shows.

Ground Rules

  • We are only talking TV not movies
  • The shows need to be Canadian made
  • Canadian-American made television CAN be nominated but lose points because it’s not a fully Canadian show
  • The show doesn’t necessarily have to take place in Canada
  • The show doesn’t have to be airing right now. Could be at any point in Canadian TV history.
  • Since this is three person podcast, we are doing FOUR rounds of nominations (as opposed to the usual three)
