"Flashpoint" fans will learn the outcome of that cliffhanger soon: After two weeks of repeats, new episodes resume Friday, July 8 ... and there's a big hint in the fact that Dillon is still filming episodes for the current fourth season in Toronto."My initial reaction was, 'Holy f***!'," Dillon tells Zap2it about his "Flashpoint" alter ego getting shot, "but it made sense. It's taking these situations and... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/06/flashpoint-hugh-dillon-sees-his-police-character-go-off-the-rails.html

'Flashpoint's' Enrico Colantoni: 'We appreciate it when CBS can utilize us'

Enrico Colantoni is glad to be back in his native Toronto filming "Flashpoint," for reasons beyond the show itself.After the hasty demise of "Chaos," the hostage-negotiation-team drama has quickly rejoined the CBS lineup on Fridays for its fourth season, actually made up of episodes that constituted the end of its third season on CTV in Canada (where the series is made). Getting to work in his hometown again as police-team leader Greg Parker pleases the friendly Colantoni, formerly of "Veronica Mars" and "Just Shoot Me!""We appreciate it when CBS can utilize us," he tells Zap2it from Toronto. "The show is very popular here. Every time I used to come home, I'd say, 'I'm an actor' ... and people would say, 'Oh, really? What have you been in?' I'd tell people what I did, and they'd go, 'Oh. Never heard of it.' What's that saying, 'You're never a prophet in your own home'? Now, I can't... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/flashpoint-enrico-colantoni-very-happy-as-cbs-police-drama-suddenly-returns.html

Flashpoint Tests the Team — Will It Crack?

The new season of Flashpoint puts family first — both on the job and in the characters' homes.  "The overview theme of the season is about family and how we're all connected," series star Enrico Colantoni tells TVGuide.com "When there are family situations that we deal with, we actually show how it affects us. The show certainly isn't about that, but you get a stronger sense of how my team reacts to the job and how they take it home, which is probably the most authentic thing about our show." Colantoni plays Greg Parker, a crisis negotiator and the leader of the Strategic Response Unit. His dedication to his job led to the crumbling of his own family...  http://www.tvguide.com/News/Flashpoint-Enrico-Colantoni-1032803.aspx?rss=breakingnews
