Well I'm just a small town cop. Mostly I give out parking tickets.
I don't want to talk about your work.

Selleck does not get enough credit for this series.
On the one hand this whole series can be dismissed as the efforts of yet one more "older" actor to keep stirring the pot, to stay in the game, and at the same time get to play in his favorite sandbox on the planet (Nova Scotia, standing in for Maine).
But if you dig deeper and consider the series as a whole what you find is remarkable control, and craftsmanship.
The same people appear in every movie, both in front of and behind the camera. Ignoring the regional Canadian accents, they are not bad.
Selleck is brilliant. Stone could be the best work of his career. He has trumped Clint Eastwood in his mastery of the two-word piece of dialog. He stands a fragile but unwavering force for law enforcement. There is minimal violence or action in these entries but they hold interest nonetheless.
And that damn dog with the stoic face steals every scene he is in.
