Storyline

With Williams away on another case in Seattle, Shannon is temporarily partnered with Donna. They are working on a case of a gunshot dead body washed ashore by the port, his face covered with a seven tentacled octopus. They discover he is Lawrence Brownfield, an American journalist. He apparently was working on a story about the drug trade and drug smuggling in and out of Vancouver. Shannon and Donna piece together the story and if it was somebody on the drug side of things who was not too happy about the story who killed him. Kosmo and Leary start their investigation on Rick Prentice's death, knowing in their hearts that Curtis is the murderer. Curtis threatens Sue to pin the murder on either her or Councilor Pierce. Sue, scared of Curtis, obliges by agreeing to plant a knife, the murder weapon, in Pierce's car. However Sue has other ideas of what to do with the knife. Despite these maneuverings, Curtis is feeling the pressure and is on the verge of a total meltdown. Kosmo and Leary ... Written by Huggo

Great crew makes this a treat to watch.
7 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, I am a self confessed Da Vinci's inquest fan, and also of everything I've ever seen that Haddock has done but there are many reasons for my fondness for his work; Haddock is a writer's writer but the whole team in the series was superb. Large credit for the success is due to the cinematography by David Frazee which visually sets the mood.

Frazees' work a number of fine series including Intelligence, Da Vincie's City Hall and The Life have all been stellar. From the opening scenes in "Seven tentacles" there is an 'atmosphere' that oozes from the frames; I almost feel the dampness, the rain and the cold and the grey light emphasizes the bleak weather and subject matter. I love the segues from scene to scene, and the unusual but not bizarre camera placement really works, right down to the jumble of action in a darkened car between Brian and Sue.

Other key players in all the artistry are the great Schaun Tozer whose music scoring is always just right, blending with and enhancing the 'action'. The sound department deserves huge praise for their work; the voices are always clear, the ambient noises are never intrusive but are just the right level to add to the action and never overpower it. With a slight hearing loss I really notice and appreciate the wonderful balance and clarity. Of course the actors diction is a huge factor, and the Canadians really have the training aided by fairly neutral accents.

Lastly the editing by Jane Morrison seems flawless, there never seems to wasted sequences nor too little. The flow always seems to make sense for me even when they cut back and forth from sub plot to sub plot.

Of course if these are not enough good reasons to watch reruns of the show, you can always watch just for the great acting.
