  1. S09.E22: Clash of Swords

    I don't know your background, but it could be because it's racist https://gizmodo.com/why-cant-this-soap-dispenser-identify-dark-skin-1797931773
  2. S01.E14: Total Eclipse of the Heart

    I noticed a moment when Bell turned away from Conrad, Pravesh, and Nic and had the slightest smile on his face, like he decided right then and there how to make this opportunity work for him. I'm thinking that it was deliberate to ask her to destroy the files, so that when she did, he could make himself/the hospital out to be the heroes. Well played sir, well played.
  3. Just watched the episode on Sikhs. There is a large Sikh population where I live in Canada, but I still learned in this episode and quite enjoyed it.
  4. I also like how they acknowledge the differences between working in a northern vs. southern climate. I'm looking forward to seeing how both homes turn out (especially the woman who's home was inherited from her Grandmother).
  5. That was a fun little quiz. Thanks for letting us know about it!
  6. Season 6

    The last season of the American version was noted for the camaraderie amongst the vast majority of the chef-testants (save one who was just nasty). It made for enjoyable viewing, and I hope that this one will be just as good.
  7. Season 6

    Dale, the season one winner, is on Iron Chef Gauntlet, so Saskatoon is truly on the map!
  8. S06.E10: Rock Your Face Off

    I’m rewatching season 4 of PR with my students (can’t wait until they see the avant garde challenge!). Nina was Fashion Director of Elle magazine in that season. And Joanna (Coles?) was with Cosmo when she mentored. Can’t remember if it was PR or PRAS.
  9. I had never seen these women before, and just finished watching the episode. I was embarrassed for all involved. If I spoke to my sister like these two did, my parents would slap me. On tv.

    As @Dots And Stripes stated, it's not that there's no food available in food deserts, it's that there's no high quality, nutritious food available. Most options include corner stores, where they sell mainly highly processed food, and fast food options. If people living in food deserts need to take public transit to get to a grocery store, that's going to limit the amount of food that they can buy in one trip, which becomes even more of an issue, as less processed food has a shelf life, and needs to be purchased regularly. People want to make healthy food choices--it's just extremely difficult in many areas of the country (including Canada, where I live). I wish I could find it, but I remember an episode of the Daily Show where one of the correspondents clocked how long it took them to get to the closest grocery store. It was quite a while--imagine doing that with bags of groceries or pulling a grocery tote.
  11. S01.E01: Would You Go Back?

    I just started watching this show, as my colleague told me about it. I teach at a public school in Canada, and I’m interested to see the similarities and differences between students here and in the US.
  12. S15.E06: That's a Lot of Schnitzel

    When Blais asked if Chris' food was too spicy/hot for home chefs, I rolled my eyes. Aren't the same home chefs the people who you want eating in your restaurants? Why don't you think they can't handle spicy food? In all snarkiness, shouldn't Blais be asking if someone's food was too salty for home cooks?
  13. S15.E05: This Is Not Glamping

    On behalf of ethnic people everywhere, this episode was scary. We ethnics don’t camp, and the idea of watching them camp and cook outside, much less in the snow, got my heart rate up a bit (ok, a lot).
  14. S15.E03: Keep On Truckin'

    I remember that episode. I didn’t know what I was watching (not realizing what panic attacks were then), but knew there was something wrong. I hope that he is much healthier and happier now. As for that stupid Logan guy, I know I shouldn’t wish bad on people, but he is making that really difficult to do.
  15. S15.E04: Little Tools, Big Challenge

    I didn’t know that was a British sandwich! I just thought it was an odd sandwich that only I ate when I was a child.
