I liked this season [of Cardinal] way more than Season 1, partly from the change of season but also because I thought the villain was way better this time. Like a lot of white people in Canada, Iâ€™ve been learning what racial appropriation is this year. Itâ€™s interesting to see it turn into a serial killerâ€™s pathology. â€”Wim
Great series, really enjoy the characters of Cardinal and Delorme. I hope there is a fourth series commissioned to complete the books. Looking forward to Season 3, which is hopefully not 12 months away. â€”Toni
After Season 1 I started looking for Giles Bluntâ€™s John Cardinal novels. The first one I found (and read) was No. 4 in the six-book series, By The Time You Read This which was so gripping! So when Season 2 started, and the â€œCatherine and Johnâ€ thread started revealing itself, I knew right away what was coming! At times, it was a little too distracting to watch, seeing actors Iâ€™m more familiar with on 19-2 and Orphan Black (is Kevin Hanchard always going to play a cop?). However, you can also look at it from the opposite perspective, e.g. Kris Holden-Ried, who played LaSalle the biker bar owner, but also appeared as a priest consoling a troubled Frankie Drake (Frankie Drake Mysteries). Iâ€™ve admired Krist as an actor since I first saw him in Showcaseâ€™s Paradise Falls. I think heâ€™s got range! â€”Stephen
I thought the opening credits for this show were the most beautiful I have ever seen. Anyone who thinks Northern Canada canâ€™t be beautiful needs to view the first two or three minutes of the show. Aside from that, as a fan of Giles Bluntâ€™s books, I was disappointed by the changes made, especially taking out Ray Northwindâ€™s heritage as a Cuban. It makes the whole mysticism much more believable than the way the TV series showed him as coming from Sudbury. â€”Wendy
Pure quality and totally absorbing. â€”AnnH
U.S. fan, blew my mind the ending. Loved this season! Great sophomore to a brilliant first season. Characters phenomenal! Landscape gorgeous. There certainly is beauty in pain. Cannot wait for Season 3. â€”Kim
