Never had a chance
31 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Amy Price-Francis plays Homicide Detective Jessica King. She is the best at what she does, but she has been ostracized for ratting out corruption in the force.

Her personal life isn't much better. She and her husband are having marital problems; getting pregnant, outside love interest, his gambling problem.

She's taken back to create Major Crimes Task Force to deal with special cases. The constant visual joke is her height. She's always wearing heels no matter how much it hurts, and she towers over the chief in charge. That always brings me a smile.

It's a pretty good procedural. Amy is a good solid actress. She commands the screen, but other than a few others, there is a lack of solid actors.

It lasted 2 seasons. For a Canadian production without any US support, it's probably as much as can be expected.
