Show Summary

Flashpoint is an emotional journey following the lives of members of the SRU (Strategic Response Unit) as they solve hostage situations, bust gangs, and defuse bombs. They work by utilizing their training to get inside the heads of these people in order to make them reach their breaking point (aka their flashpoint). Sgt. Gregory Parker (Enrico Colantoni) leads the elite team on their missions. The show is based upon the experiences of the real life Toronto Police Emergency Task Force. On August 26 2008, the show was renewed for a second season. The show originally aired on Friday evenings, but after episode 2 it swapped slots with Swingtown for the remainder of the season. Flashpoint is produced by Avamar Entertainment, CBS Paramount Network Television, CTV and Pink Sky Entertainment.

    • Always made me cry for all the right reasons

      10
      This show made me cry almost every episode. It might be just another cop show on the surface, but it was all about the characters. Both the regular crew we followed each week, laughed and cried with and occassionally mourned the losses with. But also the villains and victims of each week's story. Nothing was ever just black and white. Everybody had their own reasons for doing what they did and the show did a great job of digging down into human psycology and uncovering the story behind the human actions. Usually I'm more of a sci fi/fantasy/supernatural kind of girl and I've never given a "regular" cop show a perfect rating and doubt I will again. But the acting and writing of this show is nothing less than perfect. I actually feel sad about not being able to follow these people's lives anymore.moreless

      My son and i started watching FLASHPOINT when ION picked up and scheduled instead of our PSYCH. At 1st we were not too happy about this gave it a chance and watched. Now 4 yrs later ....1 of my FAV TV SHOWS! The characters in this show make this show. The relationship between all the characters make you feel like their family after awhile. Ed and Greg give old women something to look forward too! Awesome show!moreless

    • Addicted to Flashpoint!

      How did I ever miss this tv series?? I am watching it on Netflix now and was hooked from the very first episode. I'm in the middle of season 5 now and I'm already sad that the end of it is near. I'm sure I'll have some serious withdrawal and will start at the beginning to watch again. I love the characters and the story lines are fantastic! Bring it
