Why does it seem that between cable companies and the CBC we seem to lose great shows. It will be a shame to lose this one.

I watch this show in the UK - I have to download it to see new episodes but I watch the episodes when shown on my local cable station because I want to give the show my support. I enjoy Canadian drama far more than most of the other fare available these days - Intelligence is my favourite show by far. I enjoyed Durham County too.
Intelligence has a small audience maybe, but a fiercely loyal one that can be grown upon with enough exposure and promotion.

This is my favourite program bar none. What are the schedulers thinking by airing this program at 7PM. It is totally unsuitable for younger audiences. The twists and turns of the plot just keeps my head spinning and I could easily watch the same episode again and again to pick up the nuiances I missed. Keep it on the air.
