Last episode of season one of Cardinal, you guys! It's the slickest Canadian show I've EVER seen, even more polished than OB, yo! I love how they embrace it's elemental CanCon-ed-ness while also not skimping on promotion or talent. Or cameras. If you've seen a Canadian show, you know what…

Cardinal S1:E1 Cardinal Recap

No, I didn't stutter; Cardinal is both the name of the series and the name of the episode, AND the name of our protagonist! This is a Canadian series (come back, it's gonna be awesome! Trust me! It's like Orphan Black Canadian, not like some of those other Canadian shows)…

I think by now we've all sorted out that I love a good BBC drama or eight, this one River stars both Stellan Skarsgard (sooooooo inappropriately crushing) and our Nicola Walker from Last Tango in Halifax! The cast reads like a Who's Who in the UK acting scene, and after…
