Entertainment Notes

  • The writer's strike is over! Check out this list to see when your favorites will (tentatively) return. Unfortunately, the new season of 24 has been pushed back until January of next year, but a few more House episodes will be finished before the close of spring.
  • Does anyone remember the time when the Edmonton Public Library was in the business of lending toys? Well, they no longer have such an inventory, but a company named Baby Plays has taken this idea and is making profit off the renting of toys. Great idea for grandparents or those who only care for young children for a short time.
  • The controversial Body Works exhibition is coming to Edmonton's Telus World of Science in June.
  • Upcoming events in February: the Silver Skate Festival at Hawrelak Park, free activities at Churchill Square on Family Day (why they continue to think Movies on the Square is a good idea while there is still snow on the ground is beyond me), and what is sure to be some great theatre, including the student-produced New Works Festival at the University of Alberta - up to 4 shows for $5, and Famous Puppet Death Scenes at the Roxy Theatre.
  • Speaking of theatre, Jeff Haslam's biography in the program of H.M.S. Pinafore says that two Teatro la Quindicina productions are in the works for the summer of this year. I can only hope!

Agh, I hate Ausiello. He's such a tool.

There's no way that PB will be cancelled. Right????
