Review: Durham County

From Denis McGrath at Dead Things on Sticks:

  • Why Durham County rocks
    “Durham County serves us up a hero, and then muddies the waters right away. As those waters grow murkier, the choices you’re forced to make as an audience, the value judgements you’re forced to generate — are never pre-digested and easy. This is a show that keeps you involved by continually forcing you to evaluate how you feel about what you’re seeing.”

In the news: TV for week of May 7

From the Canadian Press, with episode descriptions of Degrassi and Durham County for Monday:

  • TV tips for the week of May 7
    • “The first of a two-part conclusion of “Degrassi: The Next Generation” airs this evening. Alex encounters money woes and Emma learns that Sean’s plans for next year don’t include her. (CTV)”
    • “Hugh Dillon, onetime frontman of Toronto punk band the Headstones, is great in “Durham County” as Mike Sweeney, a quietly tormented homicide detective who moves his family to the suburbs in search for a more peaceful life after the murder of his partner. No such luck. Sweeney is soon tracking down a serial killer in this compelling six-part crime drama. (The Movie Network/Movie Central)”
