YouTube channel ‘encore+’ resurrects Canadian TV shows, films for a new generation

Metro News:

For years, Canadians have been able to watch episodes of iconic American classics such as “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Batman” or “I Love Lucy.” But where was Canada’s TV heritage? Why was our homegrown fare always, after its initial run, locked away in a vault?

Well, “The Littlest Hobo” has finally been let out of his kennel. After years of development, the Canada Media Fund and Google Canada have teamed to launch encore+, a new YouTube channel giving viewers here and around the world access to decades of Canadian film and TV gold.

My weekend just might be spent watching “The Littlest Hobo” reruns.

      I stand with Shawn.

      At least, until I actually rewatch some of my own childhood tv shows and wonder what the hell I was thinking.

        Yea, like that time I bought Bat Out of Hell from the nice bin and popped it in my cassette player in the car. β€œWhat the hell?” β€œI liked this?”

      • OMG That is the worse.
