Jonovision was one of CBC's best shows for teens. Although not many probably remember it or were into it, it had a hidden charm that I think most people didn't get. Jonathan Torren's sarcastic wit was usually left with blank stares, but his previous role on Street Cents lent him some credibility to host a show for the younger demographic. A lot of the panel discussions were relevant, but the skits and parodies are what will mostly be missed, as well as Jonopalooza which gave some of the small town bands a chance to play on national TV.
Out of all of this even a fanclub spawned for this wonderful machine known as the Jononation, and all who were able to identify with the subtle genius that was behind it all.
