Character-driven drama, 19-2 revolves around the day-to-day life of two unwilling partners of the Montreal Police Department, Officers Nick Barron and Ben Chartier. These two beat cops patrol the urban sprawl of downtown's 19th district, in cruiser No. 2. 19-2 is about the tensions and bonds that develop between two incompatible men of very different temperaments and life experiences. Over time, Nick and Ben's mistrust and antagonism for each other give way to moments of mutual respect and a wavering chance at a true partnership. As Season 1 progresses, we also get to know the tight-knit squad of 19. We see friendship and enmity, loyalty and betrayal. The series delivers in portraying the unpredictability and fragility of the world of a beat cop through moments of life-threatening intensity to its characters, both on and off duty, cementing 19-2 as a powerful character study and a gripping police drama. —Sphere Media Plus
Not your ordinary 'crime' show
This show seriously deserves the great reviews, a brilliant show with incredible actors who give outstanding performances all through the series. This show surprised me on a grand scale, with impeccable story lines and even better executed characters. The character development throughout the show keeps you second guessing everything you are ever told about the shows' protagonists and have you yearning for more. The portrayal of street life is what I imagine it to be like in the real world. 19-2 has amazing twists and turns, it shows that even the black and white cases have some grey areas. The cinematography within the episodes themselves is beautiful and seriously warrants recognition. Each and every episode tackles a fresh angle and perspective on a story which is both realistic and completely fictional, through the balance is not perfect, it does come close.
