Canada vs America

So coming off my last post, I thought that I’d showcase the striking differences between Canadian and American television.  Namely that American television as a whole is taking a lot more chances than Canadian.  So to accomplish that I’d show you a clip of each best drama winner.

The first is for the Canadian Screen Awards winner of best drama in 2015.  A show called 19-2:

The second is for the 2015 Emmy winner for best dramatic series, Better Call Saul:

I’ll leave this as it is with only this added commentary.  In Canada, our best television show is yet another forumulaic cop drama.  Whereas in America, they’ve declared a series devoted to the examination and origin of one of the most original characters on television ever created.

We can do better.
