Kind of an anomaly.
25 December 2014 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

I just happened to see a few episodes of this particular show and when I found out it was a show made in Canada about Americans going to a prominent College in the USA I was surprised. It's bad enough that there are so few Canadian dramas and or comedies on TV without having to deal with Canadian shows that are about "Americans Livining in the USA." The female lead-I think she was called Charity Shea-is obviously a talented new actress who didn't seem to do anything else after this show was canceled/canceled, however you want to spell it. I detected more than a slight sense of the show being an 'Ode to Daddy Warbucks' type of thinking which I thought was a bit off target where the modern nuclear family is concerned-no matter where its located. I guess you can't win them all.
