TV review by Emily Ashby
The Magic School Bus Rides Again doesn’t mess too much with a good thing, and kids who have watched the ’90s series will appreciate the generally consistent cast and overall style of the show. The new kid in class — Jyoti (Birva Pandya) — reflects the show’s commitment to continued diversity, and its gender balance among the STEM-interested students is another plus.
Recognize this cutie pertuttie? Well your kids definitely would. Canadian teen actress, Melinda Shankar is a sensation in the teen acting world. At 19yrs old, this Guyanese beauty has accomplished bagging principle roles in two major globally syndicated TV shows…
I’m not going to lie. When I heard I was going to be interviewing this guy who plays Connor Heath on Family Channel’s show – about double agents and president’s daughters and triple crosses – Connor Undercover, I was expecting him to be Bieber-esque.

The Guyanese-Canadian actress also stars as Indira, a young South Asian teen, on YTV’s How to be Indie. The comedy focuses on a 13-year-old Torontonian who wants to fit in but has strict and traditional Indian parents.
Our Hero was one of those shows critics used the words “fresh,” “smart,” and “innovative” to describe. In contrast to what most often depicts life as a teenager, it does indeed stand head and shoulders above anything else that’s been on the air before and since.

This new CBC teen comedy, revolves around 17-year old Kale Stiglic (Cara Pifko), a high school student who publishes a zine based on her own life. An energetic blend of live action and animation, it calls to mind both Malcolm in the Middle and Fox’s old Parker Lewis Can’t Lose show.
