Storyline

Jimmy Reardon is the head of a small time family crime organization in Vancouver. He's got some legitimate and not so legitimate businesses, including a strip club, shipping company and several aspects of drug trafficking. Despite business being good, he is facing some problems including a junkie ex-wife with whom he shares joint custody of their daughter, a loose cannon of a brother, a major theft at one of his grow-ops which he suspects was orchestrated by his own employees, and the fact that he knows that he's being tailed but not knowing by who. The tail may be by the Organized Crime Unit (OCU) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who indeed do have him under surveillance. The Vancouver operation of the OCU is headed by Inspector Mary Spalding, who is being recruited by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). In addition to Mary coming on board, CSIS is wanting to co-opt her and the OCU's on-street intelligence network, and to build upon the network by recruiting at ... Written by Huggo

Finally... Canadian TV that kicks ass
26 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It seems like every new show on television is some crime-related, CSI-inspired, Oceans Eleven rip-off. I was thinking about this earlier today before I'd even heard about 'Intelligence'.

I just viewed the 2-hour pilot. As far as Canadian TV goes (actually as American TV, or even as far as movies go) this is good. Better than good. It's real. It's near-perfect. It's about time.

If the series continues to be anywhere near the calibre of the pilot, this show should have a good run, and find a dedicated audience in more than just Canada.

While there were "cliffhanger" moments at every turn, they weren't the unbelievable kind you find in most American shows (see Prison Break, CSI Wherever, Without A Trace). There were no far-fetched plot devices, no heavy-handed jingoistic elements, no "super-heroes", and no unrealistic special effects or sets (ex: the ridiculously blue-lit CSI work environment) to make up for a lack of substance.

The acting of the incarcerated brother was somewhat weak and annoying (yet maybe that just made it more "real"), but other than that, the cast was solid.

It's not often that TV (Canadian, American, or other) gets this good, if it ever has. Intelligence lives up to its name.
