Name a great Canadian TV show thats not only based in Canada, Canada stands in as a location for Canada. Aside from Trailer Park Boys (Canada's greatest donation to the comedy culture pool to date) world class excellence is pretty rare, Street Legal, Littlest Hobo, Beachcombers and Corner Gas pretty well exhaust my top of mind. Continuum IMHO blows them all away, in fact it blows away everything passing as science fiction on TV today except for Fringe. The Star was the green girl in the Star Trek reboot. In this show she is way more than eye candy. The show is even legally available for viewing. The first few episodes are well done but standard fare, but by the end of season one there is a real complex web of time travel woven.
