  1. Paul Boxcutter says:

    Sophie, you are fantastic! Great piece. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    and, Courtney, I think I love you.

  2. Sore toe, torso, mocking morons.

    Plus Sophie’s wonderful contribution!

    Good times.

  3. Nathalie Boxcutter says:

    Sophie’s segment was fantastic! More, please, from the Great White North.

  4. I know I won’t get any support around these parts, but to me the greatest Canadian show will always be Untalkative Bunny.

    Also, I agree with Sophie’s argument that Glee is going about presenting its characters in entirely the wrong way. I couldn’t stand that show.

    P.S. The republicans can pry my This American Life out of my cold, dead fingers.

  5. You’ve got citizenship…

    Hey, hey, hey – Sophie’s piece was awesome. That is all.

  6. David Boxcutter says:

    So, Josh, how was your culinary trip to America this week? Perhaps I should donate some more money to Boxcutters so you can afford to take the trip to the finale next week?

  7. @David I couldn’t believe it! Usually the finale’s over two episodes. This time they’ve strung us along for four!

    Also, Sophie’s segment was excellent.

  8. Daniel B says:

    Given that Ben Lawson is joing a US Cable series now:


    I’m assuming we are not going to hear from him on the show anymore?
