    Love this show! Very intriguing, love the international dynamics and the cast of characters really complement each other. Don’t cancel it!!!

  2. Carl says

    Smart show. Good dialogue, very entertaining. Sutherland great as usual, but I agree Fichtner is extremely underrated. First noticed him in Contact with Jodie Foster…great actor.

  3. Carolyn McLendon says

    Please do not cancel. I have enjoyed the story lines as well as the location scenes. Very intelligently done. Thank you. Carolyn

    So many twists and turns and keeps you constantly guessing. Excellent acting and great direction. Please change to another night because there is too much competition on Sunday night.

    Please keep it going. It is a refreshing change from the other crime shows that have such flat characters and the obvious same boilerplate storyline time after time. Crossing lines is much more complex and intelligent. Love, love the European setting.

    Really, really hoping to see more of this great show! It’s far superior to this summer’s biggest broadcast hit UTD.

    Since it’s a show with an international partner, it can’t cost too much, right? Please, give us more.

    Love the show! Do not cancel this series, great actors, very intriguing, left me hanging I must know what happens next.

    I have not been disappointed in “Crossing Lines” and have talked it up with friends and family. William Fichtner is an exceptional actor who has not received the acclaim he deserves. Having watched his career from his role at Josh on daytime ATWT, to “The Perfect Storm”, “Crash” and most recently his brilliant portrayal as the bad guy in”The Lone Ranger”, to mention a few, I was anticipating this show eagerly. What a cast, what a complex intelligent story, what a relief from the usual “reality” fare and inane comedies that fill network TV. NBC, don’t lose this excellent drama. It’s going to be the next “ER”, “Hill Street Blues”, “NYPD Blues”…

      And he was great in “Prison Break” too. Sorry it ended tonight. There’s so many more possibilities for such a good show but alas it is done.
