Proof that Imagination makes Good Television
10 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Over the years, we have seen many police or law enforcement dramas, most of which conformed to fairly limited patterns-- tough-cop, smart-cop, methodical- cop and so on.

This relatively new series has brought real imagination, and humanity, to this time-honored "genre" (please forgive my French.)

It need hardly be said that this series presents, consistently, well-constructed mysteries, but even on the level of plotting, this is above average work.

What most makes this programme worthy of success is the construction of the relationships between the characters. We are used to seeing a "team" of law enforcement officers, but this is the only series I can think of in which a major point of focus is upon the relationship between two of the principal characters and their father.

On a larger scale, this show fascinates us with the interaction between police work and higher mathematics and physics.

All of the characters are interesting -- that is to say, they make us care about them-- and, to return to the idea of imagination making for good television, the burgeoning relationship between "Larry" and "Megan" gives hope to us all-- all men at least.
