The cool thing about being a blogger is that I never know what I am going to find in my mailbox. Sometimes it’s DVDs or movie passes. Other times, it’s CDs or books. Obviously the people who send me books, have never actually read my blog. But they are accepted none the less. Sadly video games have never come my way. hint, hint.

Well today I found perhaps the coolest thing ever in my mailbox:
The first episode of Being Erica’s second season!!!!
Of course, I watched it almost immediately. And while I’ve sworn on my Veronica Mars DVDs that I won’t divulge any of the shows big secrets, I feel like I have to share a couple of points, before my full review on Tuesday.
  • The show looks so much better than last season. Brighter, more colourful and better clothes.
  • Most importantly, they have updated the formerly-awful opening theme. The song remains, all the annoying door-opening does not.
  • The show’s writers obviously have been catching up on seasons of Lost, because Being Erica is turning into quite the mysterious show with lots of twists and turns.
  • Erin Karpluk can dance!. Especially on top of a bar.
  • If you think you know what Dr. Tom is and does, you are wrong. Dead wrong.
  • The episode was one of the series’ funniest and saddest.
UPDATE: I completely forgot to add, that the last minute of the season premiere, will BLOW YOUR MIND. Keep your eyes on your TV or you’ll miss it!
And I think that is all I can tell you for now, even that might be too much. Eek! Okay, I’m going to go watch it again….just to make sure.
Being Erica returns to CBC next Tuesday!
