The next few Sprint Cup races before the Chase begins are going to be an absolute blast.
Bumping Kyle out of the way on Saturday night, Hot Carl has officially thrown down the gauntlet and I expect every other driver will be doing their best now to just stay away from either of them.
Up until now, neither of them cared about anything but winning. Now I think it's just as important to each of them that if they can't win… neither can the other guy.
It should make for some great fun, and I really hope Kyle gets the better end of the deal.
Or we could just get lucky and HC could break something during one of his smarmy backflips.
There's a new show on CTV called Flashpoint. It's Canadian made, and filmed in Toronto, and makes no effort to disguise this fact. Much of the series so far has been right in the downtown core and has made heavy use of local landmark sites like RBC Plaza and the Eaton Centre.
When word of this show started making the rounds, I fully expected it to be just another crappy Canadian made drama with mediocre production values and nothing to keep watchers from just switching over to one of the more mainstream competitors. Boy, was I ever pleasantly surprised!
I've seen three episodes now, and thoroughly enjoyed every one! This show is GOOD! Perhaps there's a certain amount of novelty in seeing my daily surroundings in the show, but there's real quality here that goes quite beyond that. The characters are interesting, and the situations are very topical and engaging.
If you haven't seen it yet, I strongly suggest you take the time to watch. It's far better than I was expecting, and certainly good enough to keep me coming back for more each week.
As an interesting sidenote, it looks like CBS is impressed as well, as they'll be airing the show in prime time in the US now. Good job, CTV!
