The Hour then and now
Now; Still hooked. It's sad really. My internet habit now includes, aside from all the blogger friends I visit, I tend to frequent the strombo forum, strombo.com, Jian.ca, CBC.ca, insidethecbc blog and The Hour.
I still have time for work, rest and play. Trust me, I have been more involved in life in the past 7 months then I have in the two years before that.
Last Season and now; OK, so I was hooked on my buddy George but, what kept me watching was the content.
Now; I look back at season two, and I look at this season so far, and I have favourite moments in each.
Maybe Last Season still has the advantage because there is more interaction with the entire country via email read live on the air.
Going on the road with the show and interacting with the audience.
Sending the Panel Van to places like Lake Louise...
Check out the old stuff on the website in the archives.
Moments like those were gold.
I think that may be what this season needs a bit more of.
Then; An invitation on the website to see The Hour being taped soon followed so I booked a seat and went to the taping in Montreal.
Now; I moved to Toronto because the opportunities for work were better But The Bonus was I could go to regularly scheduled taping of The Hour at the CBC this season.
I still think they should take it on the road at some point though...
It's just how I feel
