What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I have to say that I'm surprised by the 4/5 rating this show has. I just watched the first two episodes and it is at best a 3 on a good day. The acting is just okay, not stellar. The set is cheap, like and 80s-90s Canadian TV show (and this is a Canadian show... I didn't double check, but I'm Canadian and this reeks of low budget 1980s Canadian TV). I tried, but it just didn't hold my attention halfway through the second episode. If this show survives in Canada it will only be due to the requirement of Canadian networks to have a certain percentage of Canadian content on air. If it survives in the U.S., I'll be shocked. Great plot but very poor execution and delivery. Removing it from my tracking now.
