From Someone Who Actually Saw the Show When it Aired
This show was a true landmark of television, and not only for Canada. Intelligent, edgy, thought-provoking, and carrying a powerful emotional punch to the heart, Wojeck was the first realistic, truly adult dramatic television show I can remember....and nothing close to it appeared anywhere for decades.
Vernon's move to the US was a tragedy, for Canada and for Vernon's art (although, at the time, I can understand how someone would make the move). I loved Animal House, but seeing Vernon play the buffoon still saddens me. The only US role that came anywhere near showing Vernon's talent and dignity as an actor was The Outlaw Josey Wales.
Very sad; Such an enormous talent largely wasted.
