Brilliant Show- wish it was still On Air!!!!
27 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well what can I say? The acting is generally good throughout inspite of some woodern background characterisations. Paul Cross and David Marciano played well of each other both acting their respective roles with an emotional depth and a twist of humour when required.

The series' two key strengths are in the chalk and cheese style interaction between Fraser and Vecchio coupled with Benton Fraser's straight laced somewhat bizarre boy scout like approach to life in Chicago.

The interesting thing I noticed is that the Mountie outfit, although tying in well to Fraser's character, is something of super hero costume as he adopts something of an aura of invincibility when he dons the red uniform!!! Also the use of Diefenbaker the deaf wolf also gives the show a slightly surreal slant which goes a step further in the final series when Fraser starts to see the ghost of his father.

Overall an enjoyable and amusing TV series with good acting a fresh concept and some well thought out story lines. Definitely worth checking out!!!
