    I have just watched this episode and felt compelled to write to say what an awesome bit of writing, directing and overall story telling in this episode.

    I watch alot of US and UK TV and enjoy stuff from both sides of the pond. Other than 'Due South' I havent seen much Canadian TV but I was extremely impressed with this episode.

    It was a bit average up before this episode but they must have got some decent writers on staff now.

    There was some other TV thing in the 80s about some kids gang named after a street of something.

    21 Jump Street? That was a Cop show about a unit of very young police officers going undercover and such, was Jonny Depp's first big break IIRC.

    If you haven't seen either Intelligence or the older but still wonderful Da Vinci's Inquest I'd suggest you check them out, Canadian drama at its supreme best.

    Yes Intelligence is an amazing Canadian drama. Kinda like sopranos mixed with spooks.
