I loved the writing, and the surprises
28 November 2000 | by oldmooSee all my reviews

Just when all crime/police action series seemed to be falling into a pattern, this one came along and shattered those cliches. You just never know where the story is going. Oh, you can count on Fraser being impossibly upright, clean, and innocent, all of which throws him into high contrast with the grubbiness and cheap vice that surround him in "Chicago". The plots and characters are wonderfully wacky without ever losing credibility. It's reminiscent of the wonderful "Barney Miller", but the Dudley-Doright mountie is a fresh new character. Why don't they issue this series on videotape?
