Being Erica Is Back, Really

Our last encounter with Erica Strange felt like a fulfilling farewell: she’d received a promotion, overcome her regrets and finally settled down with her dream guy. What more could a woman want? It’s as if the writers didn’t envisage a renewal and thus tied everything together with a neat, crisp bow. They won’t fall foul to that trap again though. At the end of Being Erica’s second season premiere their lead wisely decides that "no matter how much you learn, grow or change, you’re never done."

Sure, Erica’s life has turned around but now she’s got to help others fix theirs. First up, Doctor (or should that be chief?) Tom. Feeling guilty after his angry outburst he quits, leaving a new time-travelling therapist to push Erica into rescuing him. She’s transported back to a 1990s Coyote Ugly-esque bar, where she offers ...

The Medium is Not Enough reviews the time-travel TV series Being Erica

Blog Spotlight: Third-episode verdict: 'Being Erica'

So we're three episodes into Being Erica aka "Quantum Leap for girls", in which plucky, unlucky-in-life Erica gets sent back in time to fix all the parts of her life that went wrong as part of some extreme therapy. Time then for the normally extremely manly Carusometer to set its shades of justice to pink and pass verdict.

On the whole, the show's been very good so far. Maybe a little lightweight in places, but enjoyable, fun, female-friendly without being male-unfriendly. It's been typically Canadian-smart, with Erica (MA Lit) and best pal discussing Tolstoy and Dostoevsky while playing Wii Sports, for example. And while there's been a certain element of predictability, with Erica finding that if you try fixing one part of your life, another tends to get broken in return, it has been cleverer than that for the most part.

Doctor Tom, the mysterious therapist ...

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.moreless
