I have recently become a Douglas Coupland fan and was very excited to find out that jPod was going to become a show. I actually only started reading the novel after the show had been advertised. I feel the need to address that a television show and a novel are two different forms of mediums and I will treat them as such. As a television show I find it very entertaining and am actually impressed that a television show that actually holds my interest can be Canadian. The only other Canadian show (of fiction) I am a fan of is the Kids in the Hall. For years I have given up on television but thanks to jPod and the show Reaper I have reasons to watch TV again. I recommend this show and want nothing but the best for this great Canadian show.
