It's romantic, but not too cheesy and it's interesting;
Strong points: It's romantic, but not too cheesy, and it's interesting. Christine Evangelista is very beautiful, she is very sexy, sensitive and I for one think the role fits her. Josh Henderson is also pretty OK and well, Lexa Doig is the cherry on top for me (loved her ever since the Andromeda series). There are also virtually no stupid lines, no unimaginative and dumb discussions like you see in other shows.
Weak points: I tend to think the writer(s) rushed events a little bit. Not gonna say where since I don't wanna be a spoiler, but those who watch the movie will probably see where that happened. I'll watch more episodes though, in order to see if my impression is justified or not. The movie is also somewhat predictable, at least up to the point in which I've watched it. However, that's not entirely a problem since a little bit of predictability is healthy. I've seen many other shows with great potential being destroyed by the "unexpected events" and by "unlikely alliances", which in reality could never happen.
All-in-all, don't expect a Game of Thrones type of story-arc. But if you want to watch an easy-to-watch romantic show with OK lines and beautiful, talented actors, then this is a good show to do just that.
Normally, I'd give it an 8 or 9 tops, but given it's seriously underrate as of now, I decided to give it a 10. Christine Evangelista and Lexa Doig deserve it.
I also don't like to comment on other user's reviews, but 1-3-4 stars? C'mon... It means those people have really no clue what a 1- 3-4 stars movie actually looks like. Also, some seem to have a problem with (and I quote) "beautiful and perfectly proportioned women"...which in itself says enough about that person's character and his review.
