    I actually really liked it. Thought the acting and writing were strong, the setting (Vancouver, though since it is a joint Canadian-US production this wasn't stressed) was interesting. I'm not really down with the police are worth defending at all costs premise but if you accept that this is the world you are entering then it is a well done show about this world.


    Also liked the transition that the main character goes through from everyman officer to head of the police union. Liked the little twist where you see the police chief has been taping their conversation and then awhile later you see that Leo also taped it. Game on. I'll keep watching.

    The show has a great deal of potential. The writing is strong, the performances are solid and the characters are rife with flaws. Let's see how the first season plays out. I just wish CTV would keep the online episodes and episode info up-to-date and accurate. It makes it kinda tricky to post upcomming episodes when the site changes its mind so often. They've already aired on episode wildly out of sequence ("The Unguarded Moment" was supposed to be the 12th episode, but they aired it after three weeks).

    Great show! Wish I'd found it a little sooner.

    It's good after the disappointment Rookie Blue it's nice to see a good Canadian cop show. The acting and the characters are great and the story is done well perfect setups for the future and always great to see a Battlestar Galactica alumni on tv!
