The characters and situations seem real and interesting.

Cardinal is a guy with a lot of issues and secrets, there are 50 degrees of grey to this guy.

The show feels Canadian, from the snow covered streets to the remote tree lined roads.

I really enjoyed the first episode and wonder if the show will continue to build interest for me. The politics of the police department feel uncontrived and realistic too.

Cardinal's new partner is initially uncertain of Cardinal and he of she. It seems like they might develop a good or trusting relationship but there are many things going against this outcome. It will be interesting to see the relationship develop as the characters are both smart and strongly independent.

A potentially very interesting show that is truly Canadian.
