Bronze Winner Rouge Fatale

It’s been 16 years since new episodes of Theodore Tugboat graced our airwaves, but the show’s Dickensian look at the broken lives and political struggles happening throughout Halifax’s septic dockyard still rings relevant today. Its post-modern deconstruction of neoliberal policies and the morality of the “good” ushered in a new era of prestige cable dramas. Fingers crossed that the long-rumoured mini-series Theodore Tugboat: The Return will finally answer all the disturbing questions tantalizingly left lingering by the series finale.
