Ahh Canada!

Being a Canadian I know a lot about Canadian TV shows, not to imply all Canadians know about Canadian TV shows but I do!

So this rant will be about a Canadian TV show!

Now first what can I say about Canadian TV? When its good it good! and when its bad it's Radio Active!

What is Radio Active?

Radio Active was a Canadian TV show about 4 kids going to high school and no they weren't superheroes who got their powers from radioactivity they were active in the schools radio!

They were Radio Active!

But one of them did have the retardedness of someone exposed to radiation! So he might have been both!




The show revolves around the kids as they go to high school and work on their radio show (which is only broadcast in the high school).

So we see the kids in the radio stations room some times and in the schools halls other times and occasionally in an actual class room.

But being Canadian this show has no budget!

The halls rarely feature other kids in the back ground and you only ever see two teachers and the classrooms are often only made up of the four kids!




The exact four kids in the cast!

What the heck?!

Sure they mention other kids in school and sometimes in the radio station room scenes talk of having classes with them but when we see an actual classroom its a small room with desks for four students and a desk for the teacher.

This seems odd to me. Is this show trying to trick people into thinking class sizes are good in Canadian schools? Could they really not afford a few extras to be in the background?

Why the small class? Are these kids in special ed? Are they all retarded? That one kid definitely is! And if they are all retarded why are they let on the radio- oh wait, now I get it! That's why radio shows always seems so lame!

Oh Canada!

Does anyone out there watch Canadian TV? And if so what do you watch?

  4. These series were broadcasted in Greek tv in 2003-2004. Not on a popular tv station but still. I remember watching it before attending tuition for school finals, it was fun to watch although too kid-cheesy. Morgan Leigh was hot.

  5. Radio Active was so hilariously bad...and then just bad in the last seasons. George was also in that show "Fries With That?" which was just awful.

    Old YTV was the shit, big ups to the old Zone crew!

  7. @Film Geek Bastard yes it was and I was thinking of talking about it sometime!

    @Kid Shuffle I saw "Fries with That" once. It was hard to see George without the hair!

    @Shaw I don't think Big Wolf on Campus is Canadian. Its too good!

  12. I dont think i've ever watched a Canadian show, -judging by this one- thankfully.

  13. Lol that's not so bad. I mean maybe the actual show is, but improvising like that? It's not like they don't notice as they go along with it. It's on purpose. Or maybe just accidentally on purpose.

  19. Trailer park boys is a high point in my understanding of Canadian television. I'd like to see more off it. I feel like I don't know much about Canadian society.
