What a lovely show
14 March 2019 | by movielover2011See all my reviews

I've never been a fan of legal dramas because most are set in the States and feature horrific crimes that are often based on the same horrific crimes that occur in the States. I personally don't find that enjoyable. I thought I would give this show a try because we Canadians don't presently have a legal drama of our own that is set in Canada. Another reason I watched I watched is because of Vinessa Antoine, who is a great lead. I've watched her in supporting roles before (I LOVED Being Erica and when I'm off on Fridays I often check out what's up on General Hospital (the new Jordan was a poor casting choice and can't act, but I digress) and Vinessa is showing that she can lead a show. I'm glad I watched and will continue to do so. I've even learned some things about Nova Scotia that I didn't know! Only one thing would make the show better, a better production budget, because it looks like they've only spent a few thousand dollars more than the Canadian shows I used to watch when I was a little girl. But then again, this is on CBC, and I don't want my taxes to go up :)
