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.

Best show ABC network has made since I can remember. It’s. just different than any program of its kind. It would be a damn shame to cancel this very fine show.

My daughter and I love this show. Such a different spin on the usual crime shows. I really hope ABC renews this show. Very quirky and fun to watch.

Please renew. Love this show!!


Mrs.D August 28, 2013 at 5:06 pm

My husband and I really like “Motive” . I hope it will be renewed .. I particulary like the main characters and the whole layout of the show…. we know who the victim and the killer are early and then discover the motive…..


SusieQ August 26, 2013 at 11:01 pm

I like MOTIVE. I suspect it hasn’t had good ratings because the last 2 episodes aren’t being shown (as of yet). I’d like to see it renewed, but I’m not holding my breath.


Deb August 24, 2013 at 8:28 pm

Love the show. Please don’t cancel it. Smart peoplehave so little to watch on any over air network.
