If you haven't checked out 'Flashpoint' yet, now is the perfect opportunity. Season three premiered last night, and I had to keep running the DVR back because I'd get so engrossed in the story that I'd forget to take notes.
The show falls somewhere between 'The Hurt Locker,' 'Southland' and '24' in its gritty detail about life in a Toronto-based Strategic Response Unit, where, as the title of this episode suggests, one wrong move can mean the difference between life and death.
Enrico Colantoni told TV Guide that the show is really finding its stride, and I have to agree. This episode really brought it. Bombs, environmental protesters, and a heartbreaking decision all crashed together. Did you see the ending coming? I had a feeling something tragic would happen. Dang!
They couldn't have picked a better time to air this episode, in terms of real life meeting TV land. I kept wondering if British Petroleum is getting bomb threats. But I didn't really think the environmental group on the show would go that route. Their plan to "take things to the next level" involved an Internet campaign, not more violence. That makes sense.
