November 12, 2018 6:56 PM Why the Thanksgiving TV episode is the very best kind of holiday special

There comes a time in the life of every major TV show when writers must give thanks for their show’s longevity and write a Thanksgiving episode. The Thanksgiving TV episode is a distinctly American TV tradition for a distinctly American holiday (it falls on Nov. 22 this year; Canadians, of course, celebrate Thanksgiving a month earlier). It’s not to be confused 9

November 2, 2018 7:52 PM Pressure mounts on Tavares, Babcock and Dubas to produce with Leafs struggling

He started with 10 points, including six goals, in his first five games. No chance he was going to keep up that blistering pace. In his last five games, he has one goal and two assists, and against the Stars he just missed on a couple of spectacular chances. We know he saw coming to Toronto as the chance of a lifetime. Well, now he’s up to his hips in all that being 14

November 1, 2018 3:39 PM Justin Holl gets the call for Leafs vs Stars

Holl will be paired with Dermott, who missed three games, in part for a stomach ailment and in part because coach Mike Babcock didn’t want to play him. “He was sick, but he also needed to do some work. He’s done his work. He can move the puck. He can help us.” Babcock said the plan is to rest Ozhiganov from time to time while he adjusts to an 82-game 11

November 1, 2018 3:04 PM Bobby Orr would be ‘surprised’ if there isn’t another NHL lockout

Notice from either side under that scenario has to come by next September, which would give the parties 12 months to hammer out a new deal before the old pact expires prior to the 2020-21 season. If the league and its players both decide to let the current CBA run its course, it would expire before the 2022-23 campaign. Issues include escrow payments 12

November 1, 2018 1:42 AM Thursday NHL preview: Dallas Stars at Toronto Maple Leafs

Stars centre Jason Spezza played his 1,000th NHL game in Montreal on Tuesday. The 35-year-old Torontonian was drafted second overall by the Senators in the 2001. He has 326 goals and 896 points … Leafs defenceman Ron Hainsey hits the same milestone in this game. It will be interesting to see if the veterans match up on the ice. The word out of the Stars’ 11

October 31, 2018 2:32 AM Rested Raptor Leonard wears out 76ers

There were many stars on the night — Kawhi Leonard returned from a night off to score 31 points, and Jonas Valanciunas pitched in 23 off the bench — as Toronto’s depth was just too much for Philadelphia. Kyle Lowry had 12 assists to go with 20 points, the sixth straight game the all-star point guard has registered more than 10 assists. The franchise 11

October 30, 2018 8:29 PM Stratford Festival extends The Rocky Horror Show to Dec. 2

Since it began performances on April 27, the Stratford version of the 1973 cult rock musical by Richard O’Brien has drawn many repeat visitors, often decked out in feather boas, corsets and fishnet stockings to mimic the characters onstage and in the 1975 movie version. Directed and choreographed by Donna Feore, the musical stars Dan Chameroy as alien 12

October 28, 2018 11:30 AM Tabloids: One pregnant duchess can never be enough

Cover: Is it my birthday? Did the carnival genie grant my wish? Well, not yet, but fingers crossed as KUWTK ratings are so low it’s in danger of cancellation. See, almost nobody involved wants to be doing the show anymore, but they can’t afford to stop working. Kardashians: They’re just like us. Ex-factor: The mag proposes that Bieber is upset about 16

October 23, 2018 4:59 AM Ovechkin dominant as Capitals take down Canucks

Washington’s stars struck again with less than 30 seconds to go in the period. The top line peppered Nilsson with shots and the Canucks goalie managed to stop a blast from Nicklas Backstom, but couldn’t contain the rebound. The puck bounced off Ovechkin and into the Vancouver net, putting the Capitals up 3-1. The Canucks started the third period on a power 16

October 17, 2018 8:30 PM Cannabis-filled films you can watch legally

TORONTO—Mary Jane and the movies have been a long-time pairing, from 1936’s propaganda film Reefer Madness to contemporary onscreen stoners like Vancouver’s Seth Rogen. Reefer Madness: Worth watching just to see how far viewpoints on cannabis have changed since the 1930s. Louis J. Gasnier’s black-and-white fictional film became unintentional satire over the years 20
