  • The mission does not go according to plan.

    This was another strong installment of freshman series Flashpoint. Although not as great as last week's episode, this is was still the thrill ride that you have come to expect from the hit show.

    Flashpoint is almost like a movie with the intensity of every edition and the attention payed to detail. The production values are second to none and the excitement is unmatched by any other series on television today. While other shows are slow-moving, Flashpoint is the complete opposite keeping the viewer on the edge of their seat for the entire hour.

    The show is also beginning to develop relationships between the characters, such as Greg's rivalries and personal demons and the Jules and Sam drama, which can lead to longevity. CBS is high on the Canadian import and I think everyone on tv.com wants the show to get a second season next summer. While it may not get any Emmy recognition, there is no denying that Flashpoint is an incredible program.
