Swept Under *****

cinema à la carte                                 

Today's Gift

Five minutes into it we knew it was a winner;  "Count on it; this will be a series" pipes me.  But,sigh, it won't.  Great flick on several levels. You're welcome.

NYCP? Boy, it has been a long time. Last one I saw was NYPD.

OK, based on your recommendation I'll give it a try, but it looks like another imitation police drama from Canuckistan.

Aha ! IMDB confirms - Canuckistan. What is it with Canadians and "police" shows?

I remember just after the cold war was over, It turned out that "Kojak" was a very popular TV show in some Eastern European countries. The commies thought it was a display of the violence and corruption of a major US city, the people on the other hand were infatuated with the "reading of rights" to the arrested.
It could be that Canadians are a bit tiered of being Subjects as opposed to Citizens, Eh?

"Mr & Mrs Murder", Aussie show, same premise and much funnier. On HULU and Amazon, watch it for the weird humor.

Haha, great minds? I've already watched it. I thought I had figured the plot in advance, indeed I had, but it was great to watch it reveal. Since we cut the Direct TV cord we have watched more great stuff than ever at Netfix and Amazon. Add to those two the fact that you can independently add premium channels through Roku or pre-loaded perks via smart tv's and there is a world of entertainment waiting to be discovered. Ain't it great though?
