Having seen the entire season while it aired in Canada has me excited to see it in the US. Great acting by the whole cast has me wanting season 2 already.
Poorly acted and super boring
I feel badly...I don't normally write negative comments, but I just had to add that this, in my opinion, was bad from almost the first line to the last. The acting was super bad- especially the court room scene...anyone ever been in a court room?..Just watch that scene and tell me if it resembles this story at all. Further, I am half asleep...I feel like I have seen this 1,000,000-times, like back in the 80's or something...sorry, just my opinion.
First episode should be free!
This is a Canadian show- most of us in the US don't know about it, who is in it, or anything- if anything ever needed to give a free first episode, it's a new show like this.
