Please explain Boston Pizza to me

OK, never been to one. Never had a desire. The name is weird, given that this is a Canadian company. I always assumed it was a pizza joint. Then I started seeing commercials and saw loads of non-pizza items.
What's the closest chain equivalent? Milestones? The Keg? Kelseys? Caseys?
Is there ever a reason for me to go eat at one?
Oh, I would say that you have absolutely no reason to go there! Unless your a 7 year old kid and want a different venue other than Chuck E Cheese for your next birthday!
I actually think it's pretty decent for a chain (I've only had pizza there, however), but I rarely go there since there are much better non-chain local alternatives for pizza. So, if "all-better-non-chain-alternatives" happen to be closed, then I suppose that's a reason to go. Otherwise, I guess not.
I like going to the one around here (in Tempe AZ) for late night eats since they're one of the only places open until 3 AM. The pizza is certainly edible, the appetizers are OK, don't dare touch anything else on the menu. People have tried other things, and they've been disappointed every time.
