One night shooting in a lane way off Younge Sreet the crew came back from lunch to find all the garbage Set Dressing had been picked up and taken away by a garbage truck! See more »
Although set in the United States many scenes were shot on Yonge Street in Toronto and many landmarks such as Sam the Record Man store and newspaper boxes selling the Toronto Star can be seen. See more »
This lasted several years despite the late hour it was on.
Like a lot of 80's crime dramas, it looked cold. Both physically and figuratively. This isn't a bad thing though. And the (obviously) low budget actually worked in it's favor. Gritty during a time when 'slick' was in.
Allan Royal's wraparound segments as the news writer gave it a slight edge.
The only actors I remembered were Scott Nylands (Earthquake) and Tony Rosato (SCTV). The cast of barely knowns was a good thing because one could see the group as a whole and not as a bunch of people supporting a 'star.' And yes, that's a young Clark Johnson (Homicide) in a recurring spot.
I hope a DVD release is in the future. Someone out there wanna get on that?
