Hated It
24 October 2017 | by rwoodruff-937-481346See all my reviews

This show suffered from a lot of the same problems of other Canadian drama TV series.

The acting was really bad. I don't care if a show has stars or anything like that but acting ability is a must and none of the characters in this show interested me or were particularly well acted. A lot of that has to do with the awful writing though.

The writing was some of the worst I've seen in a show. I only lasted a few episodes expecting and hoping it would get better but it never did. Even if the actors were great there's not much they could have done with the hammy story lines and awful, unbelievable dialogue they were given in this show.

Happy it got canceled.
