In the news: Flashpoint ‘all about stress’

From Ray Ellis of Blogcritics:

  • TV Review: Flashpoint: A Different Kind Of Cop Show, eh?
    “It’s in the backstories that Flashpoint differs from the usual procedural cop show. It’s not the slam-bang take no prisoners action adventure to which American audiences are accustomed.
