Whistler: not just a town now

It feels like I just got back, and I’m off again to Whistler, bright and early tomorrow morning. I really should have booked a hotel for tonight, too, but I couldn’t face heading out so soon again. I’ll regret that tomorrow when I remember that I’m really not a morning person.

Speaking of Whistler, I heard rumblings about Whistler the television series when I was at the Banff festival, since people involved with it were there (no interesting scoop – just that it’s coming soon, busy, busy, busy). It premieres June 25 on CTV so I’ll check it out if I remember. It doesn’t sound like something I’d tune into regularly, but I bet the scenery is pretty.

Speaking of Canadian series, I’ve seen two episodes of The Jane Show now, and while I was lukewarm on the first, I loved the second (in a noirish spoof, Jane gets addicted to television – I can relate. Though maybe not to the noir part of it. My life is more … blanc). But good grief Global! You don’t make it easy to promote. It apparently airs Thursdays at 8:30 in Saskatchewan and Manitoba; 9:30 in BC, Ontario, and Quebec; and 10:30 in Alberta and Atlantic Canada. Doesn’t quite roll off the tongue like, say, Tuesdays at 9/8 Central. Plus, the show’s website doesn’t seem to have been touched since the show premiered. It has a banner saying “Catch the series premiere on Global Thursday night,” a blog with two entries, the latest from June 1, and an episode guide that has only the June 1 episode listed.

Speaking of … nothing related, I still have at least a few more articles inspired by the Banff festival left to write, with one in pending now at Blogcritics – I’ll link when it’s up.

And now I’m going to start watching some DVDs of this little show I’ve heard about recently. Lost, I think it’s called?
