User Reviews

Canada's most daringly insightful TV newsmagazine.
14 January 2001 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

While there are other TV news magazines on Canadian television, there are none like Undercurrents.

This series has a fine habit on zeroing in on the big media and business with lazer like precision insight as it probes the implications of media and technology issues. Even though it is on a public broadcasting network, the government is just as prone to take it on the chin when they deserve it whether it be for racist ads or the practices of their institutions like Statistics Canada. Always, this series endeavors maintain a sense of humour whenever possible with secondary stories being basically satiric jabs at various tech & media problems that would make Michael Moore proud.

Only public broadcasting seems willing to support this kind of show and I am glad that they have the courage to do so.
