What I'm Watching: Being Erica

One of my favorite TV shows is "Being Erica." It is a Canadian show, but Soapnet runs the reruns on Wednesday nights. I first came across the show at my parents' two Christmases ago. I was flipping the channels in a fit of holiday boredom that often comes with not being at your own house and having your usual activities to keep you busy. They were showing a marathon of the first season on Soapnet and I got hooked immediately.

When I got home, I watched the rest of the episodes that I had missed on my computer on Hulu and got caught up just in time to start watching the second season on Soapnet. I was THRILLED to find out there was a third season and it started just a few weeks ago. "Being Erica" follows 30-something single Erica, who has lived a life full of regrets. Enter Dr. Tom, who offers her therapy. Time-travel therapy to be exact. Erica gets to go back in time and relive those regrets, doing what she always wished she had done. She can't really change the past, but she learns from it.

It's such a well-written series and I love the cast. Not only do we get to see what's going on in Erica's life, but also in her friends' and family's lives. We get to see Erica learn and grow and start being a success. I always can't wait to see what happens next! I highly recommend this series. Watch it if you can find it! What is it with Canada and its artistry? My favorite music artists all come from there (Sarah McLachlan, Chantal Kreviazuk, Alanis Morissette) and now my favorite TV show. Maybe the cold and darkness makes them retreat inward and draw out their creativity.....
