Glad to see the show continuing on in the same direction.
Random thoughts:
*Pony girl - Hahaha
*Lisa Ray - "Get over yourself! Beyond you, there actually is a world out there"
*Paul Franklin - A force to be reckoned with.
Also The National's:

*Paul Anka - Completely hip!
*Yvonne Ridley - ? Not sure. Interesting interview.
*Ariel Dorfman - Humbling, in so many ways.
*Diana Krall - Meh. Same as Lisa Ray, only more relaxed.
*Naomi Kline - Brilliant POV's.
*Jeff Goldblum - Eclectic gentleman.
*Samuel L. Jackson - Nice to see the man behind the celebrity.
*Matt Damon - Awesome to hear the money getting into the proper hands through his H2O Africa charity.
*Best Stories Ever - Hilarious, so far.
*The News - lightweight...but that's the point.
*Mile A Minute - It certainly is.
*Opening skits - George can't act! Ha Ha. Awkwardness=funny. Welcome to Canadian humor.

"Say what you think"...

OKAY....
I SO wish The Hour was on all year round!!!!

And...

I enjoy the openers and I like the concept of the show ending with a continuation of the opener. While I agree with Jenuine that George can't act, I believe that's part of what makes them fun...in a good way.

For the most part, the guests have been fabulous. To end on a positive note, lets just get the following out of the way now...

- The My Little Pony Collector...to each her own. Whatever floats your boat!

- When Lisa Ray visited I'm wondering if the crew had to widen the doorways so as to allow space for her overinflated ego?

- The Portrait of Canadians theme song remains awful...so awful in fact that Snickers (my German Shepherd) barks after about the third note.

On the UP side...the highlights for me...

- Paul Franklin...inspiring.

- Yvonne Ridley and Naomi Klein are two intelligent women. Those are the kind of women young girls should aspire to become.

- Paul Anka tells great stories. Fifty years in the fickle music industry...simply amazing.
