Goofs

In the opening credits of the show, Carl Hickman is shown holding a cell phone to his ear with his right hand which is supposed to be crippled and useless. This shot is flipped (as is common in credit sequences taken from episodes); watching the actual episode shows the shot the right way around, with the left hand being used. See more »

Slick Euro Drama Rivals CSI & Criminal Minds
1 August 2013 | by mrbobzimaSee all my reviews

Crossing Lines is a smartly written, cleverly acted and well produced drama about an international crime fighting unit that investigates multi-national (hence the name: Crossing the "boundary" lines of EC countries) high end and highly sophisticated crimes. The characters are intriguing yet follow similar patterns found in shows like CSI and Criminal Minds: aloof male leader (king archetype), warrior, princess and magician (computer genius) archetype as well.

The show's writers and producers have created some interesting twists in the first several episodes in terms of the main character's back stories and developing relationships with in the ICC unit. In addition, the crimes themselves are fresh and do not follow typical "clean all wrapped up nicely endings" often associated with other high end crime dramas on television.

The dialog is smart and treats the audience as viewers with a brain and soul in that there is plenty of passion and cognitive material to digest in each episode.

The writer's plot twists are risky and make watching the show intense since you are never quit sure where the producers will take the characters and story lines.
