As of June 1, 2014, Gloryosky is a media and ephemeral culture site. The heaviest focus is on Canadian television.
Why Gloryosky? That name is so vague.
It’s a famous exclamation uttered by Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder’s Little Annie Fanny, from the Playboy comic of the same name. People get that exclamation wrong, spelling it gloriosky.
Why do you cover Canadian television? It’s badly-acted, and the only good show is insert beloved property here. I hate the lighting, as well.
I noticed that most television sites written by Canadians rarely focused on Canadian television. There is TV, eh?, to which I occasionally contributed in its first incarnation. The overall system is better in the 2010s, yet – in my opinion – there is still a need for Gloryosky.
I’m not saying Canadian television is uniformly good. That would be a lie. Some shows are very good, but are not well-promoted. This has been a perpetual thorn in the industry’s side. While I can’t say Gloryosky fills a void, I try to bring attention to underpromoted shows.
Do you cover American/British/etc. shows?
Sometimes. I tend to cover shows I’m interested in.
Do you just cover current shows?
No. I sometimes talk about older shows.
Do you review shows on DVD/Blu-ray/OTT services? What about webseries?
Sometimes, and sometimes. Depends where I make my money.
Do you have a mailing and/or e-mail address?
20 Barry Road
E-mail me if you need it.
Does Gloryosky have a social media presence?
I most frequently use Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
I hate your Hotbox/Trailer Park Boys/Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town/Republic of Doyle/etc. review.
You remember those reviews?!
