  • Da Vinci's Inquest

    9.5
    I have been watching this show for years, but it wasn't in sequence then bam it was off here in it is back on WGN season 7 episode to watch 13 online but can't find it want to watch Brian get busted. an afraid they might pull this before it has a few espisodes but not is a GREAT love to watch it from the beginning.
  • GRITTY PROCEDURAL

    5.5
    Says it its Canadian. Thats no excuse. Life is gritty. Not that gritty. Things can get a bit crunchy. Thats not fun to watch. Thats the way it is. Live with it-its Canadian. All joking aside I do think the show has a tendency to become mired in overly realistic portrayals of just how bunged up things can get out there in the 'real world' -call me a weenie but I like my TV shows to be more of the escapist variety where things look better than they do in real life.moreless
  • A quirky show that can be good at times when not involved in pushing a political agenda.

    3.0
    I wanted to like this show, tried to like this show, and initially did like it. The frequent weak "non-endings" of episodes were alternately refreshing and disappointing, but what finally put me off of this show was the repeated use of heavy left-wing slants in storylines.



    For example, the police officer who disagrees with Da Vinci's desire to provide free drugs to addicts is a "mere" traffic cop, and therefore narrow minded. Then, Da Vinci apparently suffers no adverse consequences from participating in an illegal drug transaction with a cop watching.



    While this particular episode was the one that finally put me off, as bad as it was it wouldn't have been the final straw without several similar annoyances in previous episodes, including many instances of petty anti-American sniping; it's not so much the sniping that offends me as the pettiness of it, what I guess psychobabblers would call "passive-aggressive" behavior, or what real people call "wimpy".moreless
  • Great show, but not all the Seasons have been released. There is a petition to do so...

    This was a great show. Very well written, with great acting to boot. It is much more realistic than these modern shows like CSI. It can be dark and gritty, and doesn't hold back. It is definitely worth watching if you are into that kind of crime drama. Lots of Canadian guest stars, including Ginger Snaps stars Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins. They have currently only released the first three seasons on DVD. But...



    There is a petition to convince Acorn to release the last four seasons of "Da Vinci's Inquest" on DVD.

  • A cop's "cop show" although the lead character is the coroner Dominic Da Vinci. It's gritty, realistic, funny as hell, while being sad on many levels as the coroner & Police Officers make their way through some very dark realities, but always with heart.moreless

    This show has the ability to pull a viewer in, even without a lot of the backstory if you enter during a later season.

    If you're a fan of slick "Hollywood" everything-is-tied-up-neatly-with-a-bow at the end of the show...



    Or,



    if you think great crime drama is watching cleavage bulging women, wearing $500 pairs of designer shoes on lovely young investigators traipsing around crime scenes... then for God's sake don't watch this show or buy the DVD's!



    DaVinci's Inquest is one of those rare gems that speaks volumes to the viewers. You can't watch this show and not feel something, some emotion.



    The main characters are layer upon layer of actual people, with real people's problems, personalities, stupidity, humor and more.



    The writing and storylines are intricate and complex. But often glaringly basic. Just like any person's daily life. Some issues are resolved over many episodes, some in one, some... ongoing.



    All the while, you just get so immersed in the stories and the characters they make you feel like they could live next door to you!



    The actors; Nicholas Campbell, Donnelly Rhodes, Venus Terzo, Ian Tracy and so many others take the astonishing writing of series creator Chris Haddock and make indelible marks as some of the best character portrayals you could ever hope to see.



    This show has everything that American crime dramas don't... realism, episodes about people who's lives will never be the same, those that will probably never rise any higher than the street life, as well as those that are heading to that level from high up above.



    In a word, this series is "Classic"moreless
