Storyline

It's 1978 in the Canadian Maritimes, five years into David Slaney's fifteen year conviction for drug dealing. RCMP detective Roy Patterson, whose life is deteriorating in all aspects, joins forces with Slaney in an operation to nab who was Slaney's friend and drug partner, Brian Hearn, Slaney who wants payback for Hearn abandoning him. As the US DEA is also after Hearn, Patterson joins forces with DEA agent KC Williams on the case. However, Patterson is keeping information from both Slaney and Williams which may jeopardize and both Slaney and Williams' participation in the case if either finds out, and which may also jeopardize Slaney's life at the hands of the authorities.

Love the retro 70's & 80's era but don't take this show too seriously - Miami Vice it is not
27 February 2018 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I enjoy the look and feel that Caught provides (and especially the hit songs from the 1980's such as Creedence Clearwater Revival) with renegade near-to-retirement Detective Roy Patterson (Paul Gross) delivers while driving around the country in his (now defunct) hardtop Pontiac Bonneville. Not to be outdone in the 80's fashion department is the drug lord and jackal Brian Hearn (Eric Johnson) who escaped the lawman while his partner in crime David Slaney (Allan Hawco) was nabbed more than five (5) years ago and sent to prison.

The story gets interesting when we discover that renegade Detective Roy Patterson actually deceived the imprisoned David Slaney by convincing him to pretend to escape out of prison in this first episode, but no one knew it was a "pretend breakout" except Patterson, Rodd Murrin (Roger Cross) and Slaney. After escaping from prison David Slaney puts all of his effort in to catching up with his old traitor partner the jackal, Brian Hearn, who is hiding out in Mexico while both the Canadian and U.S. drug enforcement officers are looking to put Hearn in prison for the past five (5) years.

There are a half dozen or so cast members from the previous successful cop show (2010-2015) Rookie Blue, and all of them contribute in a positive manner to this retro 80's style drug dealing, prisoner on the run, crime/drama. I can't say that it compares favorably to crime shows such as the actual 1980-85 Miami Vice with Crockett and Tubbs, or more recently with the epic 2002-08 The Wire with Jimmy McNulty and Bunk Moreland, but this 5 episode series is good enough to keep me guessing and enjoying the acting and the cool hit songs of the 1980's era.

I like it and I give the series a 7 out of 10 rating
