Oh Canada!
6 April 2008 | by kainatavSee all my reviews

TV and movies are the land of make-believe. In the world of television aliens can invade and Ashley Simpson can sing. Only slightly more ridiculous is the idea that Canada joins the U.S. The Trojan Horse is a two part miniseries that hinges on the addition of Canada to the U.S. Don't get me wrong there is much more than that but I won't go into any detail about what happens but let's just say it is improbable at best. The production value is fair considering I saw this on CBC. But overall it is laughable. If you just turn your brain off and enjoy a story then this is a fair miniseries at best. The premise is ridiculous but hey it's just a TV show.
