First show I'm truly sad about the cancellation
22 March 2013 | by Bobbins1000See all my reviews

I...I just don't know what to say. I thought the show was absolutely awesome. I have a feeling it has to be the shoddy marketing which killed it's numbers. Two million an episode, seriously? This show deserved four, five times that amount. I wonder whether it's the case that people didn't understand the counselling wasn't due to them being "intimate" it was just counselling for their police relationship.

I loved the characters, the story, the acting, the plot...ab.so.lutely everything about it.

There is a special place in hell reserved for whoever cancelled this.

I am a sad sad man, RIP Common law. I wish all the great actors/actresses in it the best of luck. I will always hoping for a resurrection....fingers crossed.
