This looks like it should be a good show, and with it being on a Sunday I might just be able to catch it at the 6:00 time (which I still think is a cruel time to be airing the Hour, but I won't make any accusations of Toronto-centricity or anything like that).

Brooksie said...

Well, at least in the EDT time zone it will not conflict with the Strombo radio show. :-)

Barbara said...

But Barbara B Toronto really is the belly button of the space time continuum. I've felt it. It all swirls around the big city like cultural lint and collects here...
The Hour play 4 times a day, find the time you like or tape it... Jon Stewart's show does play the next day on the comedy network, there are not excuses. Barbara B are you going to see George when he is in Calgary for that thing?
I would have details about 'that thing in Calgary' but the strombo.com site is down again. Ask J. about that thing.
Me, I just posted this comment without the aid of coffee and you see how well that works.

There are tonnes of excuses - mostly being that I don't watch tv at 2am. Also taping just does not work for me, as is evidenced by the fact that it took me 3 months to watch the final episode of last season. But that is my problem, not the Hour's.

Is that the careers thing you are taking about, that Hilary had posted? Mmmm, not sure if I can make it to that.

i hear you with the taping thing!

but what i like so far, is that they are streaming whole episodes on the web.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Yes, that has been great, 668, and I think that may be the way I catch a lot of the episodes. Now if only they could make the picture larger than 1 square inch ...

Allison said...

Yes, I really need my glasses when viewing online.
I really shouldn't complain, I can view it here at a better time then you guys. Its just 8pm is in the middle of the night, workwise/classwise and then its the Daily Show at 11. And yes, its on the next day in the afternoon, but who is home at 2pm in the afternoon??
Very happy with the web streaming though :)
