Ruthless Asian gangs are at work in Greater Vancouver, BC
10 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this four hour show when it was telecast on CBC TV earlier this week. It far exceeded my expectations. The acting was good, the action tight and fast moving. I didn't recognize the actors, so I believe that many of them were imported for this production. Steph Song was a treat for the eyes and the actress playing William Lok's wife was very convincing as the conniving and cruel massage parlor manager.

I worry a bit that the series will give Richmond, BC a bad reputation. It is in no way indicative of life in that community, located just south of Vancouver.

If it returns to TV, record it on your PVR as I did. The commercial breaks are brutal, even with a forward skip button.
