Another great show from this team of creators
15 October 2015 | by katieintorontoSee all my reviews

As soon as I saw who had created this new series, Chris Haddock of Da Vinci's Inquest and Intelligence, I was pretty sure I would like it. Having watched the first episode, I wasn't disappointed. His signature is complex characters and plots with interwoven stories. Nothing is ever immediately obvious.

Though occasionally raw, this show isn't action packed, depending more on psychology and intrigue. Haddock creates the thinking person's mysteries. The Romeo Section is about spies with a special talent: Romeo Section of the title is a covert intelligence operation that uses seduction as its tool for spying. The Romeos and Juliets are recruited for their ability to get information by getting romantically/sexually involved with their intelligence targets. (Yes, there are some fairly explicit sex scenes. Just so you know.)

I will definitely keep watching this show. From my experience with Haddock's other productions, I expect it to get more and more complex as the various stories ravel and unravel and the tension climbs.
