A milestone for Canadian television
9 November 2015 | by rogers_tillstoneSee all my reviews

I don't watch Foreign shows, as they can rather bland and boring. But I was so looking forward to watching 'Blood and Water' on Omni Television. While I didn't quite understand the plot/story line. I rather enjoyed the cast switching back and forth between two languages (Mandarin Chinese and my main language English). Found that really cool. they even did that with the commercial breaks as well, another highlight was they filmed the outdoor scenes in Vancouver. I will definitely continue watching, other foreign Canadian shows (rather it be in Chinese or French) might want to adapt to the multilingual format as well. that's what just my opinion.
