I remember this series so well. It was excellent - such strong and compelling characters, stylish and sexy ... and so different to everything else on offer at the time - and now ... I am sure that it inspired the also excellent Canadian drama "Traders".
Both season 1 and season 2 are available on DVD region 2 in the UK. Its a treat to watch the series again.
Season 1 is 13 episodes and season 2 seems to be 10 episodes.
Unfortunately, it seems to have ended after 2 seasons.
This series was a lot of fun.
Sometimes you can get it on special at Amazon.co.uk
