Related forms: chirp·er, noun. “Wynonna Earp” is a TV show about the Albertan demon-killin’, gun-totin’ heir to Wyatt Earp’s cursed legacy.

Hockey, yay? Deb and Erika end their long hiatus to discuss the current state of the NHL including COVID COVID everywhere, trades that make you go “yoinks!”, outdoor games, and Crosby’s big 1000. There may also be a little bit of Tony D’Angelo schadenfreude. I mean, c’mon, we’re only human! In this ep’s “What the Puck?” we delve into the who, what …
 
We’re in the garden and it’s cooooold. But that might be better than being trapped in a lab full of science zombies and friendly lab rats.

To say nothing about kisses in the garden and the haughtest stairway scene in, well, EVER. W…
 
The Chirpers are back for season 4. It was a long fight and a long time coming but being back in Purgatory feels SO GOOD! This first episode is full of WTF moments and our heads are spinning already.

After a hiatus, the Chirpers are returning. And while we are sad that we are cannot record on the comfy couch with all the in-person Eeping and Cheering, we are happy to be virtually together again.

So far, so good, right? The bubble appears to be holding, but but that doesn’t mean it’s all champagne and roses, especially if you’re a Bruins fan. Deb and Erika talk about today’s biggest story (Tukka Rask), last week’s biggest story (that 6+ hour game), and the final slotting of the draft lottery. (Remember that?) We also touch on the sassiness …
 
So much has happened since we last chatted in May: there’s Kraken and bubbles and some shady Byng-ing going on. Deb and Erika reach waaaaay back and talks about the Draft Lottery, how the US couldn’t keep their #%@^ masks on and lost a hub, as well as the NHL awards that will be awarded who knows when. What even in time?! throws hands Erika gives u…
 
We are in the Big City. Almost. Wooooo!! It’s our lost episode from two years ago when the Chirpers did a road trip to the Calgary area just to watch the Season 3 opener. And then we toured all the Earp sights with a lot of joy and random Canadiana. While we are not able to all Chirp together for Season 4 quite yet, we are taking you on a virtual E…
 
Erika and Steven close out a Canada Day mini-marathon with the first episode of a story Erika remembers and loves. Well-written Jo is back! And has real chemistry with Peladon!

Steven and Erika move along to a story Erika knows pretty much nothing about. It’s a “and now for something completely different” episode of Doctor Who. The TARDIS works (if a little strangely)!
