This Review is Based on the Pilot of "Shoot The Messenger" which I totally downloaded because I don't live in Canada >:D Shoot the Messenger has all the workings of a good show, but the direction and premise are confusing. In the pilot we're introduced to a novice reporter, Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), A senior reporter, Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant - Haven), their boss, (Alex Kingston - Doctor Who) and a Detective, as well as Channing's Sister, a politician or lawyer... can't really tell. In the pilot they all work a developing case from different angles. It's thorough, and the acting is fantastic, especially Elyse Levesque, but by the end of the episode, the case was left unsolved and so at this point I have no idea if it will be a serial revolving around this one case that unveils a larger conspiracy or if its just a two-parter and will then focus on other cases-of-the-week. Can't tell yet, but I think I'll tune in next week to find out, even though I really have no idea where the show is going at this point. My advice is to check back with me next week and get the full report.
