If you know me, then you know that I’m quite possibly the worst at watching TV avidly. Even if I like a show, I am rarely ever compelled to sit down and watch it on a regular basis. Hand me a DVD box set of a notoriously addictive series, and I will let it collect dust on my bookshelf alongside the New Testament. I hate introducing new regularities in my life, and I hate passively sitting in front of screens, so TV and I just don’t jive. Of course there have been exceptions, and one of these is jPod. I started watching it over Reading Week because there were two men that philosophy had introduced into my life that I couldn’t get out of my head, and only one of them was Aristotle.  I only stopped watching because (1) I ran out of episodes and (2) I had to tackle five weeks worth of feminism readings.  jPod is quite possibly one of my favourite shows ever. It is Canadian, quirky, clever, and absolutely hilarious. Did I mention that CBC is canceling it?

Here’s my plea to all of you: click on the link above, take 40 minutes of your day and watch the first episode (CBC has them available via streaming video) when you need an excuse not to do your work. If you fall in love, watch more and then write a letter to CBC to tell them how much you need jPod in your life.
