This is a daring escape from the mindless TV that has been plaguing modern day airwaves; and a very welcome one at that. Set in Vancouver this is a uniquely stylized show that is cast, shot, and written unlike anything in production before. There is a creativity about the show, from the bouts of seriousness and reality to the humorous mind-scenesf that will remind you that the world is not all drama all the time -- a refreshing spin from your typical detective dramas. Shawn Doyle's portrayal of Arkady is spot on, and he truly sells the role. The rest of the supporting cast is superb with the exception of Gallagher (Hugo) -- I can't say this is bad acting but more of a character fit for the show -- though even Gallagher seems to portray the character as written. I think anyone renting this show will be pleasantly surprised both in the quality of the show for its mindful entertainment and the time when you suddenly realize you have watched the entire season in one sitting. Do not pass this one up!
Best show ever!
If you like shows like Monk which make you think rather than just mindless action you should love this detective show.
Love the show!
This is a great show to watch. Its funny and addicting. You'll just fall in love with the characters! Buy this series! You won't regret it. The mysteries and the way it's filmed is fantastic!
