Rise of the Parkas

In the past year, things have really started taking off for the Parkas, the four-piece London-based pop-rock band that has built a dedicated Western following (three of the members studied at Western). Having played opening slots for Canadian indie-rock darlings The Dears and Hot Hot Heat, the band went on to sign with Winnipeg's Endearing Records and are releasing their first full-length album, Now This Is Fighting, this month.

Fall comedies lacking

Every year the networks ask us, "Are you ready to laugh?!" and the poor quality of sitcoms makes the audience react as if they'd just heard about a dog being run over in a parking lot. Maybe 2003 is the year when the next Seinfeld emerges, but don't hold your breath.


Roberts makes par

Dickie Roberts is a comedy about a 35-year-old former child star in pursuit of a comeback role in the hottest new Rob Reiner Hollywood flick.

Feeling robbed of a "normal" childhood, Dickie Roberts (David Spade) hires a family to help him relive the childhood of a normal boy in order to prepare him for a possible role in a hit film.


Lets talk about sex

It's what makes Britney Spears so popular.

It's why people follow Sarah Jessica Parker's career.

It's how the scandalous Melrose Place lasted for so many seasons.
