Metropia was a show that didn't recieved much attention. Granted, the show was blessed with a diverse cast and torrid storylines worthy of any daytime soap opera; but it also had a sense of realism that other shows lack- Canadian or otherwise. It's a shame that this show didn't have a larger following or more creative input as it clearly could have been a successful show in later seasons. The actors seemed genuine in their roles, the use of bang! as a showcase for Canadian artists was a plus.
The only downside was that everyone drank Steamwhistles and everyone had to go daily to bang!/the Hotspot to keep the storylines moving.moreless
