Being Erica is a Canadian comedy-drama television series created by Jana Sinyor and starring Erin Karpluk as Erica Strange, a woman who begins seeing a counsellor to deal with regrets in her life, only to discover the counsellor has the ability to send her back in time to actually change these events.
The series aired in Canada on CBC from 5 January, 2009 to 12 December, 2011. There are 49 hour-long episodes in four seasons.
Being Erica premiered in South Africa on DStv's Hallmark channel (which became Universal Channel in 2010) on Thursday 12 November 2009, at 21h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.
Season 2 premiered on Universal Channel on Thursday 22 April 2010, at 21h00. Double episodes broadcast back-to-back, weekly. There are 12 episodes in the second season.
Season 2 Repeats
Nearly a year since her therapy began, Erica is enjoying the outcome.
Indeed, her life does seem significantly "fixed", having landed a hot new job at River Rock Publishing and the man she calls Mr. Right, her best-friend Ethan.
But the boat is about to be rocked...
Sent back to her greatest regret - the death of her brother Leo - Dr. Tom warned Erica that she was only to say goodbye, and not to meddle with the course of fate.
But the temptation was too great and Erica defied Dr. Tom's trust, leaving her at a crossroads, unknowing if she will ever see her therapist again.
Season 2 Erica is worldlier, more accountable, and more experienced in the ways of time travel. If Season 1 introduced her to time travel, Season 2 has her questioning and exploring its dynamics. She's no longer the inexperienced patient traveling wide-eyed through time.
This Erica is more skilled in the Dr. Tom school of therapy and, while continuing to undergo it to learn more about herself through her life's regrets, will seek out answers to the more complex questions surrounding time travel, Dr. Tom, his brand of therapy, and her place within it.
