Love it!
13 January 2012 | by jessicaburnieSee all my reviews

I'm surprised to see that it's only got 5/10 so far in ratings. I'm a relatively picky viewer, easily losing interest after the first episode of a show isn't able to grab me. This one did! Part of me wonders if it would hold much interest for the average male viewer, though-- despite the climate of warfare and the homegrown Canadian backdrop, the show focuses on the ladies and their lives, and I can't imagine my boyfriend watching/enjoying it.

I agree with the previous posts about the stellar acting, and don't have much to add in that respect. At the end of the day--- I'll be following it obsessively. ;)
