Storyline

Award-winning writer and producer Ken Finkleman (The Newsroom) returns to television in Good Dog, his highly anticipated new comedy produced by Shaftesbury in association with Astral's The Movie Network and Corus Entertainment's Movie Central. Starring Finkleman and Lauren Lee Smith (CSI; The L Word), the sharply ironic series focuses on the life of George, a self-absorbed, neurotic TV producer. After hooking up with Claire, a gorgeous model half his age, George negotiates his new reality dating a younger woman by pitching a reality show about his high concept, highly coveted, seriously volatile life. But when network executives insist that Claire move into his house, George is forced to escalate the relationship and consequently, his fears of commitment. When the pitch and his life go sideways, he frets, vents and reevaluates by soliciting questionable advice from his best friend Doug (Jason Weinberg). Finkleman is renowned as the writer, creator and producer of the CBC/PBS series ... Written by Shaftesbury Films

Horrible
14 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Self indulgent and self important tripe from a producer/writer who clearly thinks he's the smartest and sexiest thing on the planet, yet never conjures up a single laugh. Forget about empathy or identification with the characters. If you feel anything for this guy I suggest you seek psychiatric help to deal with your narcissism. Tries to resemble a certain American TV show (I'll let you figure out which one - it takes less than 5 minutes of viewing)

I'll continue because IMDb requires 10 lines of text but how many ways can you describe a turd? Perhaps we should ask the two viewers of this program outside of the actors' families why they watch this.

It makes me question Canadian content rules altogether and worry for the future of the species. Really. I think it's that bad.
