Being Erica

Show Summary

Thirty-two years old, perpetually single and struggling economically, Erica Strange gets serious about understanding where it all went wrong with the help of the mysterious Dr. Tom. In each episode, Erica relives a deeply regretted part of her past and has the chance to do it all over again differently so as to make a positive change in her "present" life. The series, which premiered January 5th, 2009 on CBC in Canada, is currently airing in the U.S. on the cable channel SOAPnet. In May of 2010, both CBC and SOAPnet announced plans to renew the hit dramedy for a third 13 episode season (Season Two had only twelve due to CBC budget cutbacks). While new episodes began airing in Canada on September 21, 2010, U.S. fans will have to wait until January of 2011 for Season Three of Being Erica.

  • So fresh!

    It was a small show without big expectation, but for me it was an amazing show which gave some freshness to my TV listing . I have followed the progression of Erica in the discovery of herself for 4 season with a optimistic view on Life.

  • An amazing show about self-discovery

    I loved this show and I'm so sad that it ended. It was both funny and poignant and Erica's and Dr Tom's inspirational quotations were always clever and right on the spot. I guess anyone needs a Dr Tom in their life (I definitely would!).

    Erin Karpluck is a wonderful actress and was the right choice for playing Erica. I also loved the Toronto setting, the Canadians have come a long way - two of my favourite shows (Being Erica and Flashpoint) are set and produced in Toronto!

    This is a must-watch series!moreless
  • If the CBC could go back in time, they should pass on this pitch. Nothing would change in present time - their network still wouldn't be watched.

    I wanted to like this show. I was a fan of Erin Karpluk from Godiva's and the premise intrigued me. After a promising premise, however, it now continues to miss the mark. I was hoping for a light comedy but instead it has turned into this earnest drama. It looks good, they have some great songs but for such a fresh idea, it really comes across stale. It borrows too much from cliches (breaking your heel, having somebody steal your cab) and never seems to want to have fun with itself. Is Erica never surprised or baffled when her doctor shows up? Who is he? If this happened to me I'd be asking some questions. I suppose it's the writer's right not to explore this angle, but I wish they would.



    Too many of the characters are one note. The witchy editor - does anyone really want an espresso that bad? Her old professor seemed to belong on another show.



    I know it's annoying to knock a show on a forum where most people love it, so I won't make a nuisance of myself and I'll leave it at this.moreless

    I find this show enlightening. We all have regrets and if we could go back, I'm sure it would be just as terrifying and exciting as it is for Erica. It would be crazy wonderful if this were the case, I would like to be a doctor and help out other peeps. To help them see the big picture, and that behind every regret another chance to do it right or at least accept the outcome of said regret. And, meeting other people on that path of spiritual growth, just an added bonus! I'm reading behind the scenes, and for those who aren't sure about this show just watch a few episodes and tell me what you think then. :) :) :)moreless
