As the US DEA is also after Hearn, Patterson joins forces with DEA agent KC Williams on the case.

Couldn't Stop Watching!
I got so caught up in this 5-part series, I couldn't stop til the end. I thought the format was fitting for the retro atmosphere of this fugitive on the run/cop with skeletons/revenge thriller/bad guy's got it coming drama. Paul Gross did a superb job as the haunted-by-the-past, something to prove cop. Eric Johnson...I hated his character...great job being the bad guy, Eric! Allan Hawco killed it as the "ticking time-bomb fugitive" that I couldn't wait to go off! And the soundtrack...well...if your a rock & roller, black-light poster loving "head" from the 70's...you're in for a good time! Worth you're time. So grab a brew, some party favors, and your lava-lamp...you're in for a kick-ass ride! And when you're done with this one, you MUST SEE Allan Hawco's Republic of Doyle. The UK gives it 5 STARS so trust me...watch the first episode and then decide for yourself...Yes b'y!
