    But the good reviews for MVP suggest something else. The series is doing well because it’s vaguely different. It doesn’t feel like a copy of a U.S. show so it’s got a freshness and appealing zip to it. Ironically, I suspect that’s precisely why MVP was never a big hit in Canada – most viewers expect soapy Canadian drama to look and feel like a show made in Hollywood. And at that point, I give up.

  1. I agree completely with this. I for one enjoyed MVP. It was fresh and fun and entertaining. Flashpoint on the other hand…yawn, the pilot was okay but it’s not my type of show.
