Smart, well acted series.
29 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well acted and directed. Where exactly was it shot? Looked like Hamilton to me, but I'm a west-coaster so I don't know for sure. Hope there's more of the same where this came from! I particularly liked the writing on this show, it was real, not stilted and very believable. Cinematography was also impressive with a gritty (but not overly so) feeling to it....very "real". Characters were strong and held my attention throughout both episodes. Last, but not least, well edited and kept my attention riveted without calling attention to "tricky" stuff. All around very well done! Congratulations Canada on a good show and also good to see that most lead actors were Canadians too.
