Good morning everyone. This weekend, like the past two months of weekends and possibly quite a few future weekends will be (live)streamed. It is what it is, we may as well try and make the most of it. Since it is also Mother’s Day this weekend, we are dedicating this edition to Catherine O’Hara’s masterpiece turn as Moira Rose in Schitt’s Creek.

(p.s. if this prompts you to do nothing BUT watch Schitt’s Creek all weekend long or petition Pop TV to do a special corona spinoff with nothing but Moira and her wigs in quarantine, we can’t say we blame you)
