        Critiquing Canadian Television

        Due South, Power Play, Flashpoint and The Listener are all TV series made in Canada. Why is there a dearth of diversity in Canadian productions? Given the popularity of Degrassi: The Next Generation and Little Mosque on the Prairie could Canadian TV benefit from exploring the uniqueness of the Canadian experience? What recommendations could be made to help Canadian TV?

        • (Corner Gas?)There is so much filmed in Canada, particularly in Vancouver. A lot of Sci-Fi. Fringe, The 4400, The 100, Stargate SG-1. Granted, Vancouver is losing some of the hold it had on Sci-Fi television (that's politics of film, not this article).My point is, are you looking for Canadian-produced and created work, or just work that was filmed in Canada, because there is a huge divide between those two? – chandlerwp 8 months ago

        • 100% Canadian productions Chandler is what I would like to see examined. If a movie is just filmed here then I don't think there is much creative control. You are correct that there is a huge divide between the two in terms of how much the producers would have a say in who and what and how these TV shows are made for sure. – Munjeera 8 months ago

        Ranking the Avengers Movies

        What criteria should be used to rank Avengers movies? What ranking would the Avengers movies have? I think 1-10 with 10 being the highest would be a easy reference for ranking. I would love to see what people have ranked already and a discussion for what really makes a great Avengers movie. If this could be timed to be written around the time Civil War is released even better. I found Age of Ultron derivative but know some people loved it. I think originality, the origins story and the villain are key to great conflict and rising tension. Character development, such as in Ironman, also adds flavor. Another often forgotten criteria is the supporting actors. Hope this helps. – Munjeera 6 hours ago

        In what ways did the original Star Trek predict the future?

        There are many ways in which the original Star Trek predicted aspects about the future such as the communicators which mimic cell phones. I would like to find out from Trekkie purists how Gene Roddenberry got it right.

        • Something to consider is that Star Trek has done this as a whole, not just with the Original series. There were many devices in both Voyager and TNG that predict future technology, such as tablets, comm systems, AI computers, and holograms. Perhaps you could compare and contrast each series and their different technology predictions. – Megan Finsel 1 year ago

        • I would like to see an article on the original series since it was 50 years ago or around there as a sort of anniversary of the series when it started Sept. 8, 1966. A kind of homage to the ideas as well as technology that Roddenberry envisioned. One item that comes to mind is the international cast. It is so unusual to have that kink of diversity in terms of a TV series in that time. Referring to specific episodes would also be great when they encountered alien technology that was "ahead." – Munjeera 1 year ago

        • Did Star Trek predict the future or create the future? Are there any modern technologies (i.e., the flip cell phone) that just might have been influenced by Star Trek? – sophiacatherine 1 year ago

        • Finding out what Star Trek influenced in terms of tech would be interesting. I heard that NASA did get some ideas about space technology from Star Trek. – Munjeera 1 year ago

        Hi LC,

        I have to say I disagree with the criticisms of the article as repetitive and taking a scolding tone. I am a helicopter parent, proud of it, but found the tone lightehearted. I did not feel scolded at all. Also, I think that the article has a sensitive tone about a topic people can sometimes get intense about ironically enough when it if about toys and playing. I love the great pictures and expecting an article to cover everything including transgender and intersex children is beyond the scope of the article. BUT it would be a great topic to leverage out of this article. I would love to see someone write on that, maybe a follow up article on this one.

        Great article! I always loved riding with my Big Wheel and was encouraged to do so. But then I also loved playing in a sandbox.

        Bodies and perception! An area of research that is getting a lot of play lately. Should be interesting to see where we go with this and a great way to start is where we have been in the past on this issue. Thanks for an informative read.

        Your conclusion is one of the best I have ever read! Great comment on the future and very insightful. A good ending to an interesting read on a relevant topic. Our language is changing and as we try to communicate across the globe, I wonder if texting will become even more prevalent.

        I love the narrator’s voice in this piece, especially narrator as villain. It would be great if we could have a movie using this conceit.

        Amazing research for this article. Perceptions of bodies are, in my view, going to be key, in breaking down social stigmas and stereotypes. Why should our bodies determine so much of how we identify ourselves and are identified as by others?
