Excellent Storytelling.
9 February 2012 | by GlippSee all my reviews

I loved this series. At first, I wasn't expecting too much - I was expecting some kind of Pan Am/Playboy Club Hybrid. But this was most definitely not the case. Every episode had me glued to my seat. Every actor plays his/her part to perfection! I Meg Tilly was perfect. Peter Outerbridge was perfect. They all were. All were in character from start to finish - and very interesting characters they were too. My only complaint is that the series was so short. I didn't want it to end so soon.

Being a Canadian series, and not an American one, it is likely that there won't be a second Season. The final episode wasn't left open-ended for the possibility of ramping up profits by adding another Season.

Although a man, I sometimes enjoy stories told from the female perspective a little more than from the male's. For this genre of story, I doubt that I am in the minority.
