Storyline

A Vancouver based murder has just occurred and been discovered. At the beginning of each episode, not only is the victim(s) identified to the viewer, but also the killer(s). The disparate group of Vancouver Homicide detectives, with help from the Coroner's office, have to wade through the evidence which will lead them through the more often than not less than straightforward path to discovering the killer(s) and his/her/their motive. That motive often is not fully understood by the detectives until they catch the killer(s). One of those detectives, quick witted and acerbic tongued Angie Flynn, often has the competing priority of raising her son, Manny, as a single mother. Written by Huggo

So quirky it is addictive
28 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Any story which has revealed the victim and killer before you have sat down is on a hiding to nothing, right? It is what I thought when watching the first episode of this TV series, but, I kept watching, and, by the end of the forty odd minutes it had me hooked. This series is like having dots joined together in real time by an odd ball bunch of police detectives and their medical assists, or, even better, being navigated through a maze of dead ends right into the middle.

There are, of course, the off story lines which build our characters lead by Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) a single mother of a teenaged son, and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) with whom she flirts just a little. But the main reason for my addiction is how cleverly pieced together the plots are. Now I'll admit to flaws, but they are dramatic license rather than incredible events, and the occasional bumpy rather than smooth ride through the evidence, but this show still has been enraptured by its ability to course through your veins like a superdrug.

Ms Lehman is a great actor and this series is a great vehicle for her skills.

Watch just one episode and see if you don't catch the bug.
