Robson Arms:By Lezah

There is a new 13 episode show premiering on CTV tonight (Friday, June 17). Called Robson Arms, this 1/2 drama/comedy is set in a 'once grand low rise' apartment building situated in Vancouver's eclectic West End.  Altogether, there are 22 tenants in the building; each episode delves into the lives of particular individuals in building, with the Snider-like (remember the '70s 'One Day at a Time') apartment manager Yuri being the thread that connects everything together.

 With a strong cast, including Mark McKinney (Kids in the Hall), Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables), William B. Davis (The X-Files), and Margot Kidder (Superman) to name but a few, the show is also introduced each week by 'The Troubadours' who fill us in on that week's characters with musical rendition akin to that at the beginning of certain other TV shows from the early '70s (think Gilligan's Island or The Brady Bunch).

With strong writing and an excellent cast, this one promises to be a good one!
