Trivia

Most-likely filmed in the Canadian province of British Columbia, the closed-captioning uses Canadian-English spellings, instead of American-English spellings ("colour" instead of "color", for example). See more »

Goofs

Billie finds two wrappers for nicotine gum. The kind of wrappers that contain stick gum. Later, during the interrogation of the private investigator, Ian pulls out nicotine gum that is bubble packed where you have to push out each piece. See more »

User Reviews

 
Tedious, dull acting

I have not been able to enjoy this series at all, and this is another demonstration of why. Holly Peete and Rick Fox cannot act in dramatic roles. Both are good at giving each other warm knowing looks, but that's about it. Their acting is shallow and passionless. Holly has a gun pointed at her and her reaction is on par with a late breakfast. Boring, dull and no emotion. Heck if I had a gun pointed at me I would at least my eyebrows in alarm. With Holly, nothing.

Sorry, but Holly cannot act.

Ian Fox is not able to portray depth either. HIs lines are punishingly few, so one wonders what the producers expect him to do with them. Either way, the result is a flat, dull character. As they gave his character a family member to live with him, perhaps that will bring his character out of a coma.

The only actors with some life are Karen Robinson as the aunt, the man who plays the character with her and the dog.

I couldn't make it through. I finally fast forwarded it to the end and then happily ended my pain.
