Storyline

When Harley Carter was a teenager, he experienced 15 minutes of fame when he solved the mystery of a serial killer plaguing his small town. Now, years later, Harley has become a famous Hollywood actor playing a grown-up version of what he actually was as a kid. And it's wearing on him. After an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood, Harley returns to his hometown to take a break but finds that he can't leave solving mysteries behind. Carter taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with (and reconnecting to) his childhood friends, no-nonsense police veteran Sam Shaw and witty, street-wise coffee truck owner, Dave Leigh.

People who compare this to Castle...
7 June 2018 | by Little_CSee all my reviews

You don't get it. Yes, it makes very subtle fun of Castle, but is a completely other animal; here the protagonist is like a blind dog, who finds a bone now and then on pure luck, while all other "consulting detective" shows have a consultant who really has a skill to bring to the table.

And for it being a Canadian show... so what? It's beautifully shot, doesn't have an overdose of action, and has a relaxed pacing. The actors are very good chosen in their roles, and Jerry O'Connel gives his character a boyish charm that let him get away with a lot of stupid things. It is even referred to by other characters.

Overall a very likable show, which I hope gets at least one season more.
