As the summary notes I like this show because it excellent, Canadian, and shot in HD. Plus in Canada to find this original content on a digital channel is unheard of. Outerbridge was impressive as Detective Murdoch in "The Murdoch Mysteries" a holmeswellyan type broadcast on bravo. He performs equally here. The characters are well portrayed and are hard to put in to a box. They come across-ed as real not stiff or stereotypical. Some are definitely not hard on the eyes. Dmitry Chepovetsky is so believable as man social issues and a too huge IQ. The diverse ethnicity and backgrounds of the cast/characters adds interest and Canadian-ness to the show which I enjoy.
These genre of shows are starting to over saturate the networks. (science investigation, mystery, interesting locals) The closest comparison to be found on an American network would be "Medical Investigation". But as much as I enjoy Neal Mcdonugh the writing often stinks. I truly hope there is room time and money for mores seasons of this show.
Update: Season 2 is due in Spring of 2006. Yeah eh!
