Did You Know?


The set location for the Lass Household, 3851 Osler Street, Vancouver, BC (depicted as "3851 Beatrice Lane" in the series) was the location of an actual murder in 1924. The murder victim was a young woman named Janet Smith, and her accused murderer, a Chinese immigrant, who was subsequently acquitted, ignited racist feelings and legislation against Asians. The murder dominated the headlines of the Vancouver Sun for weeks. Also, the BC Historical Federation, Volume 43 No. 4, has a picture of the house on its cover (PDF link at Google). See more »

Completely wonderful, Alive
12 September 2004 | by (Attleboro, MA) – See all my reviews

This show is easily one of my favorites. Ellen Muth's interpretation of the disaffected, cynical teenager who is forced into sticking to a higher standard is right on. The writers have produced some of the funniest comedy, especially where George's boss Dolores is concerned; a former junkie who has taken home drifters ("passionate lovers", she calls them), who gives no thought to using a Tazer on a courier at the elevator in order to get her incontinent cat to the vet. The dialogue is funny, and hearing what's going on inside George's head while she puts on a smile is more than a little amusing. The show still visits the serious side of things, showing how the Lasses lost a daughter, while George has lost her whole family. Little by little, the audience is fed bits and pieces of information about the lives and deaths of the main characters. Most mysterious is Rube. He has a love-hate relationship with the unseen being who delivers the death lists, and we know only that he had a daughter, and that he attempted to send money to someone named Rosie and her mother back in the 1920's. (The postal service failed to deliver it,unknown to him until 2004.) We can only wait to find out how everyone's lives -and deaths- have played out. This show is absolutely nothing like Six Feet Under, for which I am grateful.
