"He did get shot, but that was by no means as dangerous as what's happening to Oliver now," Matt Gordon tells Zap2it of the cliffhanger that's set up the ABC police drama's Season 4 finale Thursday (Sept. 12). Shaw is now the captive of Kevin Ford (Michael Cram), a suspected pedophile seeking revenge against the cops of 15 Division for his recent arrest and interrogation ... and for his stalking by Officer Marlo Cruz (Rachael Ancheril).
"It's the most I've ever done on the show," the good-humored Gordon says of the season-ending episode, which puts him through physically and emotionally grueling scenes. "You always want that stuff. Then, of course, when you spend two days in the same spot doing exactly the same thing, »

If he hadn't wanted to make a "Killing," Hugh Dillon might have not jumped back into series work so soon.
Not long after he wrapped a five-year run on the Canadian-made police drama "Flashpoint," the actor-musician is staying on the side of justice -- albeit in a much edgier way -- as Francis Becker, a death-row prison guard matching wits with Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard), an ex-cop inmate who killed his own wife, in Season 3 of AMC's dark Sunday drama "The Killing."
"I identify with certain characters, scenes and dialogue," Dillon tells Zap2it, "and I guess the lightning in a bottle is finding chemistry with other actors. I had that with Enrico Colantoni on 'Flashpoint,' and that makes it exciting to continue to go to work. It's funny working in that one location (the prison set), but it comes back down to the written word."
And Dillon, »
The first thing a newcomer to Flashpoint notices and which I think works in its favor, is that it stars Amy Jo Johnson, aka the original pink Power Ranger, and the underutilized and crazy talented Enrico Colantoni. The music for the show sounds like Japanese video game tracks, like something from a Resident Evil or Dead Rising game, and yet, this is a cop show centered around the Strategic Response Unit (Sru). The Sru is essentially a Swat team, only smarter and with a healthy dash of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six thrown in for good measure. To its credit, this isn’t just a group of sexy twentysomethings solving crimes under the wing of one older authority figure, a la CSI: Crime Scene investigation.
Apparently, this fifth season was the last one. Maybe that's because the show, overall, feels like a watered-down and sillier version of the BBC's Mi-5 series, »

In a year that brings us new big screen adventures for Iron Man, Superman, Wolverine and Thor, it was always going to be difficult for Universal Pictures' forthcoming sequel Kick-Ass 2 to grab some headlines, but that's exactly what happened this week as Jim Carrey made the decision to publical withdraw his support from the film. Having seen an early cut of the Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel, Carrey suddenly became »

You’re watching Orphan Black, right? If the answer is yes, thumbs up for you and if the answer is no, that’s okay too, but after reading this piece, you’ve got no excuse to miss out on the clone craze. The show from Flashpoint’s Graeme Manson and Spartacus’ John Fawcett began its run on BBC America on March 30, 2013.
The ten-episode inaugural season has already run its course, concluding with “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” this past Saturday, but it’ll return for a second ten-episode season in 2014, so why not torture yourself for the next ten months and become firmly obsessed now?

In the 20 years since the release of their platinum-selling debut album "Picture Of Health," Canadian rock band the Headstones have seen the highs and lows of the music business, literally and figuratively.
Just last week, the Headstones took one giant step towards reclaiming their rightful Canadian rock crown with the release of their first studio album in more than a decade, "Love + Fury." "Love + Fury" embraces the group's long-standing ethos of no-holds-barred rock 'n' roll. In an age of pre-manufactured pop idols, one-hit wonders and monkey-toting superstars, the world needs them more than ever.
Rejuvenated by the band's return to the concert stage in February 2011, Headstones lead singer (and "Flashpoint" actor) Hugh Dillon suddenly wondered why it had taken them so long to get back together.
"I had forgotten all about the stuff that I despised about the music business," Dillon tells HuffPost. "It wasn't about putting the band back »

Hugh Dillon is starting another television gig, but he'd be happy to revisit his last one.
The Canadian actor-musician plays a prison guard who matches wits with a death row inmate (Peter Sarsgaard) when AMC's "The Killing" returns for a third season Sunday, June 2. Dillon's trademark intensity also remains on view in his role as Sgt. Ed Lane in Ion repeats of the elite-police-unit drama "Flashpoint," which has finished its five-season run ... but he hopes that show hasn't seen its absolute end.
"It was one of those great events in life," Dillon tells Zap2it about his "Flashpoint" tenure. "Just yesterday, I was talking to Sergio Di Zio, who played Spike on the show. It's very much like family. Also, I learned technical things there that I could bring to 'The Killing,' things you aren't even aware you've learned that you just bring to the next project."
Chicago – I know — Another mystery show, right? When do we grow tired of mystery after mystery? Other cultures have to be amazed at our obsession with murder and the people who solve crimes. While I feel no genre is more glutted with filler than this one, ABC’s “Motive,” an import from Canada a la “Rookie Blue” and “Flashpoint,” isn’t half bad. It has a strong cast and decent mystery plotting. My exhaustion with shows like this hurts the program overall but if you’re into mystery shows, you could do a lot worse.
Television Rating: 3.0/5.0
Daniel Cerone, the executive producer of “Dexter” and “The Mentalist,” delivers “Motive,” a show built around a nice hook that keeps viewers engaged through the episode. In the very first scenes, you see a person labeled victim and one labeled killer. In the two episodes available for press, how these two people would »

"Rookie Blue" soon makes its return, but another Canadian-made police show that has had success in the U.S. recently ended.
And both share a "parent."
Tassie Cameron was a co-executive producer and writer of "Flashpoint" -- which included Amy Jo Johnson in its cast, and had American runs on CBS and Ion -- before becoming a creator and executive producer of the Missy Peregrym-starring "Rookie Blue," which starts its fourth ABC season Thursday, May 23.
"I have such a soft spot for that show," Cameron tells Zap2it of her "Flashpoint" experience, "having been involved in the first year and having worked with Mark (Ellis) and Stephanie (Morgenstern, its creator-producers) closely. It really was a game-changer for Canadian television.
Summer used to be the time that we’d see Warehouse 13, Haven, and – sigh – Eureka return with new seasons, but that’s all changed. Warehouse 13 returns for the second half of its giant 20-episode season on Monday, Haven is now a fall series, and Eureka… well, you know.
But chin up! We have Season 2 of Continuum and standalone seasons of Sinbad and Primeval: New World coming our way, along with the return of Face Off, Ghost Hunters, and many other competition and nonscripted series, not to mention a Twilight Zone marathon, a Roger Corman marathon, and more Original Movies with excellent titles.
