O.K. continuing along the TV theme, who is this Mike Holmes, with the show Holmes On Homes? Is he really the good guy? A nicer Bob Villia? What gives with all the dodgy stuff he fixes? How come we dodn't have a US version of this guy?

Default hmmm

If only we could get a real version of the TV drama that really unfolds.

Mike does a good job, but some of the things he does are questionable, as with anything done in an hour.

Where is Dudley when you need him?
Prolly polishing his RCMP issue leather boots. I hear he's into leather.

Do Canadians grow up watching that or do you have a stupid American character that gets old after three shows?
Yes, his name is Wolf Blitzer. I thought he was a reindeer at first, but then I noticed he only had two legs and had a more or less vertical torso.

How do you feel having Brendan Frasier play Dudley? He's not Canadian. That would make me mad.
No, we're not pissed. We figure he's caucasian, and that's close enough to pass for a Canadian. Now, if they had some Pashtun tribesman or Congolese pigmy playing the part of Dudley Doright, there'd be some discussion of the matter.

I thought wolf blitzer was a figment of my imagination till I was 16. Then I was sure of it. And your right maybe Brenden has Canadian heritage? We should all ignore that.
