Great show but.........
Verified purchase
Great show but buy the complete season (there should be 6 of them). If you buy them separately some of them are missing episodes. I made that mistake and spent money on 5 season them had to go back and order a complete set. Wasted so much money.

Formula show that strikes some raw nerves
Verified purchase
Flashpoint is very much a formula based drama in which an elite police unit tackles the really difficult situations. Amazing how a show not even 10 years old shows how much technology has advanced yet given they use a lot of "high tech" gadgetry it is obvious when they don't have things like smartphones this was made during the previous generation of technology. That aside it is entertaining and for a formula show does a fairly good job of keeping the stories diversified. The surprising thing about the show is that as surface as it is in many ways, the episodes still have a way of getting to you as they write about some pretty raw emotional subjects. In that way I think it is unique from all the shows I would put in the same category. Not great, but definitely a unique twist on a tried and true show concept.

Easy, this all about finding a way home! We all want to go home!
Verified purchase
Flashpoint was a amazing TV Show. Unlike other Law Enforcement Dramas, Flashpoint really looks to the psychological toll the job takes on officers, and delves into why these "subjects" do what they do. It shows how a series of events leads up to someone commiting, or threatening to commit a violent act, that the Strategic Response Unit (SRU) to be called in. Quotes said on several episodes include, "He's a subject, not a perp," "Easy, this all about finding a way home! We all want to go home!" and "Let's Keep the Peace." Perpetrators are treated like human beings who had something happen to them, not some evil person who is some lesser being. This is what Law Enforcement shows should be like, instead of every show being like Lethal Weapon or Ultimate Force...

Great Show !!!!
And Realistic
The Cast are all great , The scenarios real , and the Director has been doing a terrific job . They must have good advice from active Law Enforcenent to be so realistic , plus it takes you into the Mindset of an officer when unfortunately has to take someone's life which is Not mentally easy , even if it's justified and a bad guy . There are always second quessing yourself. But the Idea Of A Non Swatt Less lethal response unit is a Terrific idea ( Tactical Resonse Unit ) !
The Show Delivers greatly ! Highly recommended all seasons .

I don't like fake shows such as csi !

Psychology and Triggers
Verified purchase
Admirable characters. Good guys risking life and limb to help people keep theirs. Esprit de corps among the elite. Nothing ambiguous about the good guys on the team. Old fashioned heroes but modernized a little with some personal woundings on various levels mostly as the price they paid to serve the community. There's something extra engaging about taking the moral high ground and putting your body on the line especially knowing that the world can bring danger anytime. They're the ones you would want to have within earshot when encountering bad situations. You will be taken where the action is in this show.

Flashpoint is a great action & drama series
Verified purchase
This is an amazing Action & drama series! Every actor is well portrayed and the writing is good! The show is about the police strategic response units (SRU) which are responsible for high-risk situations that can not be resolved by regular law enforcement. It not only shows what they do but it also shows the emotional toll this kind of work has on law enforcement when they need to use force to defend against evil & criminal actions & the guilt that comes with it. I found that this show to be grounded in moral motives & family values. Also, enjoyed 'The Unit' (also on CBS).

Flashpoint is an excellent show full of drama
Verified purchase
Flashpoint is an excellent show full of drama, suspense, caring, violence (but not normally gruesome), personal info on the characters, etc., etc. There has been only one episode that the ending upset me tremendously, although I realize the reasoning behind it. Don't recall the name of this episode but it was where the daughter had been abused for years by her father and was just about to shoot him (which he obviously deserved) but the unit was forced to shoot her. Wish it was still being produced.

Mixed bag
Verified purchase
The 5 stars are for the SHOW only - Flashpoint is one of the best that's come out in years! However, having said that, the 'Season 3 Season' set purchased here is a mess. It has the last half of Season 2 - which would be a good thing except they're out of order! Then the Season 3 episodes are also mixed up - among the Season 2 episodes.
If everything was in order - hey, I'd say well, OK - but messing up the espisode order AND the episodes between the seasons? This is just not OK.

I want Season 4 but that will have the remainder of Season 3 and who knows what kind of messed up mix up of episodes.
