After part one ended with a very surprising twist, it’s time to see where part two of Ascension takes us.
Let’s bitch it out… [Read more…]
Well viewers, we’ve reached that point – Being Erica has its very last episode tonight (sniff). I thought it was fitting (especially considering how uneven this season has been) to remind myself why I think Being Erica has been one of the most interesting and engaging shows of late (serious bonus points for being a decidedly Canadian show as well).
So let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and take a look at some of Being Erica’s best moments (in chronological order).
*Obviously there are many more great scenes that aren’t included in this list. These scenes represent those which really stuck out to me as being something special and memorable. It is by no means an exhaustive list. Please share your top picks in the comments!
It’s time to start the countdown folks. With only three more episodes to go in the series, this week’s episode of Being Erica attempts to clean up the sloppy mess the show has created for itself for the better part of this season.
Let’s break it down…
With just a few more episodes left in the series, Being Erica finally addressed some sticky issues regarding time travel and hinted at some of the rules of what the whole “doctor” process entails.
Despite addressing the larger mythology questions of the series, this episode had some major missteps. Being Erica has been one of my favourite shows of all time, but I feel this current season has been struggling to live up to the kind of quality I’ve seen in previous seasons in terms of character motivation and narrative cohesion.
Judging by Being Erica’s latest episode, it looks like the show is falling into a very similar routine week after week this season. I’m disappointed seeing as these are the last few episodes of one of my favourite Canadian television shows. We’re over the half way mark in the show’s final season and some burning issues still remain.
Nevertheless, it was great to see a reunion of sorts as this week’s episode focused on Erica’s (Erin Karpluk) adorable ex-boyfriend and former best friend, Ethan Wakefield (Tyron Leitso).
It was a hit and miss episode this week as we wind down to the series finale of the hit CBC show.
Re-living the events of your past in order to learn something about your present and better your future has been the crux of the entire series. This week’s episode was a bit clunky overall, but ultimately stayed true to its foundation making it an enjoyable one overall.
