    I find Crossing Lines to be a wonderful show. The stories are intelligent. Would hate to see it canceled.

  2. Toulouse says

    I love the international feature and the women on the team in almost equal numbers to the men. Plus Donald Sutherland coming in now and then. I need drama not reality shows. Keep it going

  3. Hopeful says

    Crossing Lines is a fantastic, unique program. How often is there a show with such solid international cast and gripping story lines? I hope that the network will not rely only on the Neilson Ratings in its decision. Please bring this show back and give it a chance.


    Enjoying a show set in Europe has been very entertaining. The critics are complaining that the show does not fit the model of the internattional courts. Guess what, this show is FICTION. Neilson ratings do not accurately reflect the veiwing habits of most amereicans in that most people watcch shows that have been Tivoed, or they stream them from the internet, or even watch them on DVDs. Stop REALITY TV NOW!!! Thank you.

    Crossing Lines is a great show. I would be very disappointed if it were cancelled. It is very suspenseful and holds my interest from the beginning. Please cancel all reality TV .

  6. G Grantham says

    Only show on any station that I would record, and they cancel it. American tv is really horrible. I honestly do not think I would replace my tv if it broke down

    My husband and I love this show. Far better than the vampire/werewolf/gargoyle shows NBC has put out there and run for full seasons. Running it in normal season and giving it a full run might see a significant growth in viewership. Of course NBC has been aiming for a younger demo and cancelled another show we really liked after a very short run – Prime Suspect. We were loyal NBC viewers but now wonder if they really want an older demo that enjoys the grittier shows. We have lots of choices and have begun exercising them.

    Crossing Lines is a great show. I hope the network gives it a chance before they cancel it. It seems as though every production that is well written and well acted is cancelled before it can gain momentum which is just too bad.

  9. holly l says

    I think it should be renewed. Although i don’t watch out until it oohs on hulu, I do think out is a quality show.
