Re: Does Canada Produce Good TV Shows?

Yeah, The Newsroom and Made in Canada were fantastic. For comedies I would add The Tournament, this was like the Trailer Park Boys but with hockey parents (they made a British version of this show called The Cup). And Twitch City (Molly Parker and Don McKellar) which was about a guy obsessed with TV and unable to leave his apartment. And of course SCTV. I would also include Lexx in the comedy category.

For drama you can't beat Intelligence and Da Vinci's Inquest.

A few others worth mentioning: This Hour Has 22 Minutes (still running), North of 60 and Wayne and Shuster, both long since finished.
