i wasn't looking at that naked body promise. it was gritty, hardnosed, street, and cutthroat. pure Canadian bacon. or Canadian steak. masterclass ensemble. i became addicted to Venus Terzo, the babe who did all those anime voices i found out later. you look at Nicholas Campbell, whose name escaped me for years, and he's not your typical Canadian nice guy. he has a grizzled, pocked face. he's like a Canadian after a few American beers. fascinating to watch. supreme actor along with legend Donnelly I KNEW HIM BEFORE GALACTICA!!! Rhodes, the Canadian Lennie Briscoe.
it was on really late (or early), like 3:30 am Sunday morning. i would take a nap after Saturday Night Live, another show that's basically Canadian.
i love this exercise cos i watch these trailers again after so many years and the memories come flooding back. remember that Canadian gangster film i was talking about? well that's this show. you wouldn't think there would be Canadian gangsters but apparently there are. one scene that comes to mind was a hotel with Dominic Da Vinci ready to get some from a hot blonde not his wife by a bed. i dunno, his awkward smile throughout made me smile. i went with it, let the Coroner have some flesh of his own.
two words: KATHARINE ISABELLE. you don't know what i've been through. i spent all morning imdbing like a madman trying to remember that name. yeah her and her best friend in life and movies EMILY PERKINS, both on the show and both on Ginger Snaps. watch Ginger Snaps NOW while eating ginger snaps and become a goth like me.

yeah the Emily Perkins character was asking for immunity or something if she gave the cop a blowjob. imagine that.
and then Dominic became Mayor and you knew the end was nigh...
also for Demarcation, let's all pray for Syria and hope something vital gets done yesterday. on a lighter note, Divot, here's to an exciting Masters, i wanna see 4 contenders on the back 9 this Sunday. but let us never be Distracted.
