Global (ended 2007)
|I did like the first episode of season 2. There were some interesting story arcs introduced. Nick Walton in Iraq? I wonder how this will play out? Carey in a top hat and tails was hilarious. The entire show looks more polished than this time last season. I am looking forward to more Canadian comedy.|
It was off-topic. This topic of this board is the show.
Which has more drama the show or this message board. OMG!! I thought this was a friendly place to discuss a beloved show.
Having seen the article on the ratings i was amazed. over 200000 viewers. Wow!! I was afraid it might just be the three of us who posted here. Why did they not join in the discussions last season? Hopefully they will find this little corner of the world and join in.
Carey's son was a shock!!! Stella telling him there is a problem was brilliant.
Nick in Iraq is perfect. Since he is still in the opening credits i guess he's coming back at some point.
Will Stella ever get her baby? I really am enjoying this story line.
Is there more than coincidence between Susan's Jamie and Jane's James. Susan and James would be fun
I do have to ask, what is the time-setting for the current episodes? How much time passed between season 1 & 2 in the story. I'm a bit confused on this, especially with the episode on the celebrity reality show co-worker.
You seem to have watched a lot of episodes of a show you clearly don't enjoy. I'm sorry you did not enjoy it but everything can't appeal to everyone. I know that for ratings / revenue that is usually the goal with televison. The Jane Show is a bit different. I like it. A primary character who, as you said, is not really that endearing, is one of the aspects of the show i love. Jane's Jane, not who everyone else tells her to be.
As for being billed as Sex And The City meets The Office, that was Global's take on the original pilot. I was the editor for The Jane Show on tvtome when it premiered in Dec 04. The show kinda changed A LOT after that first episode.
Hopefully, if you decide to continue watching, you will enjoy tonight's episode.

You also seem to post a lot on a show you don't (didn't) enjoy Where is everyone else?
Let me first say i don't watch 30 Rock. I have this thing of hating the Baldwins so... sorry Tina
Honestly, last week's episode did creep me out a bit. It seemed like Jane was getting a bit racist in her attempt to not be racist. Its not really a trait to be carried on throughout the show by the primary character. I didn't find it as funny as previous shows but a serious issue is good to raise. I thought it was very realistic for Jane to find her intentions misunderstood. I would never have gotten confrontational with the man from Kingston just because he is white. Jane and i differ there. But i am now wondering what Iggy's "ethnic background" is. Still love Jane and her show. But i thought it would have more on composting in Toronto. I am really curious about that.
First, may I say it is nice to have you return to us, janewalton. I had been wondering were the mysterious crew member disappeared to.
Second, it is not PDHILL as in P.D. Hill. It is a very obscure reference to Bono's 'real name', PDH III Paul David Hewson the 3rd, which btw was a joke on his part. There is no '3rd' in his name. Its just one of the little things i noticed long ago on tv and thought that it was perfect for a user id here. And I'm a bit of a serious u2 fan too (importing the singles not release in America, etc). We all have to have a little Bono in our lives I'm listening to 'Xanax And Wine' right now.
The getting creeped out by the racism episode because we see a bit of ourselves in it is i think what it was supposed to do. To make us look closer at ourselves and see our faults and prejudices that we might change them. Still, i thought it was going to be an episode on composting and didn't expect that episode to go in the direction that it went.
I suppose with the internet we could find out more on Iggy and the actor who plays the role so well but that would ruin the mystery of the character.
I caught them all. With all the lack of promotion and no internet for a while I was afraid that I had missed the season premiere. Literally, i saw Jane was on again when i was looking to see when LOST would be on since ctv changes that week to week. I did get the haunted apartment episode. I want Susan's apt!!! Minus the haunting of course. I haven't seen The Exorcist but i think there was some reference to that movie in the episode. Carey has some interesting old friends. Susan's neighbours reminded me of a few people in my building.
