I've never been a big fan of Canadain made productions. 95% of anything coming out of the CBC is overly Canadain bunk in my opinion. I'm a proud Canadian but I hate most of the stuff coming out these days. It's pretty pathetic and tries too hard to put the Canadiana in your face. And far too much period pieces for my liking. Having said that, I really enjoy this series, it's clearly a Canadain centric show, but it doesn't throw it in your face. I like that they throw some references in that only Canadians are going to get. Most of the scenery could be anywhere but we will recognize it and most of the yanks i'm sure just think all those patches and such are made up not realizing they're Metro Toronto badges.
Something I didn't think would play well in the States are some of the uniquely Canadian policing issues, like having to deal with the SIU investigations and now a civilian lawsuit over a police shooting. I don't remember seeing too many story lines like that from any U.S. based shows. I am sure once they reach their stride we'll see some more character development, they've been flurting with it, but i'm thinking they'd have to wait and see how long they'd last before delving too deep into story arcs that are going to take longer to develop.
