TV show description:
This crime drama has a unique twist in that it doesn’t focus on who committed a crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers navigate the twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside the detectives, piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the killer to commit murder.

When a murder is committed, Detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer.

Sexy and feisty, Angie is a thirty-something single mom from the wrong side of the tracks who proves that appearances can be deceiving. Oscar is intelligent, thoughtful, methodical and confident. He comes from a wealthy family and turned his back on an expensive Harvard Divinity School education to join the police force (a change of heart from his initial choice of joining the priesthood).

Others on the homicide team are: Doctor Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly), a medical examiner with a quirky sense of humor that belies the grimness of her daily job. Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross), the Squad Room Supervisor who was sidelined from the streets a few years earlier by a bullet. Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny), a young eager beaver detective and newlywed who’s eager to learn and is fascinated about the often grisly procedures.

Angie doesn’t suffer fools or authority figures lightly. At home, Angie only wants the best for her teenage son, Manny (Cameron Bright), who is one of the few things in life that she feels she did right. But as far as Manny’s concerned, being the son of a cop is not the easiest gig in the world.

Hope to see it again this summer. It doesn’t insult my intelligence when I watch. But why don’t they shoot in the summer, Vancouver is such a beautiful city and they are always standing in the rain?

Love the show. It’s a keeper.

Love this show. Unique way of approaching a crime drama. Love the interaction & partnership between Angie (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis Ferreira). Like that there isn’t anything romantic, just great parTners. Glad they got rid of the stupid story line of Angie’s past relationship with the boss. Stick to the crimes; so much better. Don’t watch much network tv anymore, but always watch this show. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL ONE OF THE FEW GOOD SHOWS LEFT ON TV.

Great show, the characters have good jelling, the show keeps you engaged and even though you know who committed the murder, it holds your interest to the end. Please keep this series on, Angie is a kick-ass no nonsense cop.
