Mobo, that is a very conscise and perfect distinction between the two authors. I think I might have been the one that confused the two since I loved both of their works.

I watched part 1 of "The Comey Rule" with Jeff Daniels and other notable cast members. I read mixed reviews but found I liked it more than I expected to. Will probably watch part 2 tonight.

..this is a very important film to watch. it clearly shows the misinformation spread by anti sealers have led to a destruction of inuit economy. which has led to suicides. the film depicts an awesome fightback against destructive forces including the eu. 

Angry Inuk (1 Hour version)



To not forget to be joyous. Must be watched full screen.

I have only watched the first episode and hope to watch the second tonight, but "The Trickster" on CBC is fantastic.

TRICKSTER (6×60 Drama, Streel Films and Sienna Films) is based on the best-selling novel Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson, with CBC confirming today that it has been renewed for a second season. Starring newcomer Joel Oulette, this unique series is created by award-winning filmmaker Michelle Latimer (RISE, Nuuca) and Tony Elliott (Orphan Black), and directed by Latimer. Oulette plays Jared, an Indigenous teen struggling to keep his dysfunctional family above water, holding down an after-school job and selling ecstasy to support his partying mom, Maggie (Crystle Lightning), who self-medicates an undiagnosed mental illness, and his unemployable dad, Phil (Craig Lauzon) and his new girlfriend. But when Jared starts seeing strange things — talking ravens, doppelgängers, skin monsters— his already chaotic life is turned upside down. Additional cast includes Kalani Queypo (Jamestown), Anna Lambe (The Grizzlies), Joel Thomas Hynes (Little Dog), Gail Maurice (Cardinal) and Georgina Lightning (Blackstone).
