I bought this show based on the great reviews I read on Amazon and my fondness for BBC/CBC crime shows. And I gave rave reviews for another Canadian TV cop show I recently bought called "The Border". But I didn't like this show much at all. The pacing was slow, the acting no better than a weak cop show you'd see late at night on cable, and the characters and cases just had no 'sizzle' in my view. The premise of this show is identical to the series that ran for 8 years on CBS, also called "Cold Case", starring Kethryn Morris. That is a great show but unfortunately not available on DVD and probably never will be. So I would not recommend this show to anyone who loves cop shows. Its not 'terrible', its just that their are SO many good cop series out there (The Wire, The Shield, Law & Order, to name a few)that I wouldn't waste my time watching it. I stopped after 3 episodes.
