“If we’re kind and polite everything will be right.”

Children’s stories don’t always translate well to the big screen and when they do, sometimes it’s painfully clear they are made ‘just for kids’. It takes a special type of movie magic to make a film that is good for the entire family, and there is no better example than the movies we have for today’s episode of Talkin’ Tuong! This week join Tuong and Mother of Marmalade Sarah MacDonald as they do a double feature of the most lovable bear with a dapper red hat, and blue coat and see why these are the most well reviewed movies of all time – Paddington 1 & 2!

Come on down!

TV Game shows have been around for a very long time. And while the history of this format has been around forever, the appeal of them has always been the same – that everyday people could win a lot of money by being tested for their mental or physical abilities (or more times than not just dumb luck). So this week join Tuong La and What We Do in the Basement’s Jesse Bergen, Natashia Durand, and Thomas Proles as they they land on the Daily Double and give the final answer of “what is Top 5 TV Game Shows?”.

Ground Rules

  • We are specifically looking for “TV Game Shows” where TV is the operative word.
  • TV could also extend to anything on a screen so like a mobile game show but not something like a video game show
  • We are also not including Reality TV shows or Fictional Game Shows
  • Generally there has to be a “prize to be won” at the end
  • A key aspect of a TV game show is generally a rotating guest of participants and not like a “season of the same guests” like a reality tv show would
  • Nominations are stronger on how unique the show is, how influential the show is, how fun it is, if people can “play at home”, etc.
