So!

 

You know any good films or serials made in Canada, of all places???

-share your knowledge of Canadian television with us!

 

I know one: Gavin Crawford show. Brilliant comedy show from very funny canadian.

-totally worth watching. Mind you, it has some very rude gay jokes, so if youre overly sensitive...

Actually I think a country that gave us, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, deserves a free pass, culture wise. But while we're on the subject Shermy, tell us more about Finlands contribution to world culture?

Aalto, as a disigner. Sibelius, as a composer

Kimi Raikkonen and many others, as a formula drivers of great renown.

Martti Ahtisaari, nobel peace price winner, for bringing peace.

Tommi Makinen and others, for rally cross legends

Sherminator, as a major pain in the butt

I heard a piece of classical music based on the paintings of Van Gogh, but didn't write down composer, googled it, do you think it would be Rautavaara or Jarrefelt?

I'm quite fond of "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" .

@Sherminator. Do you really think you can sneak 'people who drive cars' past the cultural police, come on!!!

Sports are important part of culture.

 

More prominent finns:

-Linus Torvald, the maker of Linux. I actually met the dude when I was young.

-REnny Harlin, the director of Die Hard 2. Married Geena Davis. Brilliant!!!

-Eliel Saarinen, the world famous architect.

 

But back to topic: I loved Flashpoint, but had no idea it was a canadian production.
