More like the Australian Coast Guard
26 October 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I just returned from an overnight trip to Toronto and while there happened to see an episode of Sea Patrol. It was an interesting series and of course populated by a bunch of Australian players none of whom I would know. The show is about a bunch of men and women who serve on a patrol boat in the Australian Navy. Might be nice if some American network started running these episodes.

Of course this is peacetime and the mission seems to be more one that our Coast Guard would be doing. Air sea rescue, running down smugglers, stuff like that. The craft these folks serve on is somewhere between the size of a destroyer and a Canadian Corvette.

The episode I saw involved the rescue of some kids whose fishing dinghy capsized off a coastal island. The crew also has to detonate an old mine, one of Mr. Tojo's calling cards from World War II.

It seemed like a competent well made series. When next in Canada, maybe I'll see another episode I hope.
