  1. Good interviews, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that End Game will be worth watching. I don’t mind procedural shows as long as they try to bring something different or at least interesting to the table, either in the tone of the show or in the characters.

  2. Re: French Canadian shows. It feels odd for me (an American) to be recommending a French Canadian series to Canadians, but there’s one that I stumbled on called FORTIER that ran from 2001-2004. It’s a psychological crime thriller in the vein of the US shows PROFILER or CRIMINAL MINDS. The entire series is available on DVD in Canada (with English subtitles). If you like this type of crime show, it’s worth checking out.

  3. 19-2, on Wednesdays at 9pm on Radio-Canada, is my favourite Cdn. series, English or French…I love that show!!!
    About 1.2 million viewers a week.

    I remember Fortier but 19-2 is better because it’s about patrol cops.
