Get ready for a long weekend at Harry House
When I sent out my little life update two weeks ago, I should have given myself the grace to take the last two weeks off in anticipation of all the chaos that was coming. Instead, I ended up with a half-written newsletter that never went out!
It’s fair to say that the past two weeks have been busy. I worked The Juno Awards broadcast on the weekend which was *incredible*.
As a GGC Media Mentor, I supported a segment for CTV’s The Social on Monday:
On Wednesday, I worked my last shift at The Skoop.
Then yesterday I wrote an accounting midterm for my MBA…
So it’s been * busy *.
I am very ready for the long weekend… with Harry Styles.
That’s right friends — HS3 aka “Harry’s House” is out now and it’s phenomenal. I’ve already got favourite tracks. I will have it on repeat ALL WEEKEND.
I’m really ready to relax and just enjoy. This is going to be a short newsletter — because I’m still in recovering mode but expect a FULL proper newsletter next week.
Let’s get into it.
Things to watch this week:
I’m just going to give you a list of things to watch this weekend because I missed last week and last week had the REAL list of things on TV so pretty much everything worth noting is ready for your viewing pleasure.
Shoresy. Created by and starring Jared Keeso, two new episodes of the six-episode, half-hour hockey comedy rollout every Friday.
HBO’s The Time Traveler’s Wife has been streaming since last week.
New this week we’ve got RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars: Season 7, and a documentary: Roadrunner: A film about Anthony Bourdain.
Canadian comedy fans need to check out the reboot of The Kids in the Hall.
The much-buzzed-about Conversations with Friends is streaming weekly episodes.
I really want to watch the new Lindsay Lohan narrated reality show Lovestruck High.
On CBC Gem:
Catch up on all the Junos content!
British crime tv fan should check out Trigger Point.
Canadian TV fans need Zarqa in your lives.
Bling Empire’s newest season has launched.
The Swiss series New Heights has caught my eye — let me know if you’ve seen it. I’m curious.
Also in the reality genre, Love on the Spectrum is out.
The Essex Serpent looks really good.
FINALLY on REAL TV aka network tv two highlights:
It’s the season finale of SNL this week with Natasha Lyonne and musical guest Japanese Breakfast. Obviously that’s on Saturday.
Then, after six years This Is Us is wrapping up with it’s series finale on Tuesday. Last week’s episode was incredible and had me sobbing so we shall see what comes out this week. If you watch this show let me know and we can form a support club.
Other things to check out:
I only have one thing I want/need you to check out this week and it is a person:
🎶 At the Juno’s Charlotte Cardin won big. She took home Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year, and Pop Album of the Year. If you do not know her, start here with this q interview. Then check out her album Phoenix and watch this incredible performance of Meaningless from the show. If you’re into it, it’s time to watch her Nickelback cover for CBC Music. I’ll say this — she deserves *all* the success coming her way.
I’m sure there is more but I’m sending this off
Have a great weekend,
