Set against the spectacularly rugged backdrop of Newfoundland, this stand-out series is created by and stars Allan Hawco (ZOS:Zone of Separation, Trojan Horse) as the roguish and irreverent P.I. Jake...
After a botched bank job, a gang takes a hostage, Japanese girl on the run from arranged marriage, and escapes. Their wheelman saves the girl from them and the two go on the run with the cops, the gang and her psycho father on their tail.
One of the greatest shows ever to come out of Canada. We'd rate it right up there with "Seeing Things".
Fun and fast moving. Only "Psych" rates higher on our must-watch list. Unfortunately, the programs will be shown at the exact same time starting on January 8, 2014. Thank God for DVD recordings and "on demand" from cable-TV. We can't understand why one of the U.S.A. networks hasn't picked up this series.
The cast is well chosen, and the characters they portray are down-right "classic". Because CBC started re-running the show at 1:00 pm daily, we've seen every episode. And there is hardly a week one in the bunch.
