In Defense of London
27 July 1999 | by (Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada) – See all my reviews

About the only popularly negative comment on this television show that I will accept is that because it was produced on video rather than on film, it lacks crispness and depth of color. I cannot and will not agree with people's sweeping, cynical put-downs of every other aspect of this production. The storytelling may be formulaic, but there is enough flexibility in the formula for the show to vary its episodes. Some are about crime-fighting, others concern rescue of people in perilous situations, and still others deal with solving interpersonal problems, finding lost items or animals, etc.. The acting is fairly often admirable, mainly by the primary guest stars in the episodes- and there are quite a few well-known and respected actors and actresses in guest star roles. Camera work is often inventive, music is appropriate to the action, and episodes are quite quick paced. For a television show shot on video in Canada, it holds up quite well, and there is a timelessness to its concept. Finally, with a charismatic canine star, it is innocent, wholesome family entertainment. There does not seem to be much of that on television anymore.
