Uniquely Canadian series
22 September 2004 | by wolfbane49See all my reviews

this was a uniquely Canadian variation of the old American western..viz; a turn of the century cop show..instead of a U.S. Marshall, we had an Ontario Provincial Police Inspector..Instead of Texas, we had Ontario Canada...instead of a tall two fisted Marshall we had a portly police inspector, who, in turn solved crimes a la Sherlock Holmes using his powers of deduction instead of fists and guns so typically Canadian! (instead of Watson, he even had a devoted assistant in the form of Sargeant Striker who did most of his running around for him)...The locations were strictly urban and rural Ontario. the crimes were mainly crimes of passions and greed turned to murder although almost no blood or even violence was ever displayed...the attitudes were very much Victorian (women being very rarely considered as suspects even though the opposite often was the case)...Sadly, the series lasted only 1 season, never reaching a very wide audience who yearned for spicier and more vibrant action
