Random promotion of Canadian television ... just for the heck of it
The program: Da Vinci's Inquest. Besides Canada, it's being broadcast in Hungary and the Netherlands ... nary an episode in the States (I was surprised by that ... since it's currently filming its seventh season, I figured one of the U.S. cable channels would have picked up on it by now). Quality and drama-wise, it's equivalent to (and frequently better than) "Homicide" and the original "Law & Order"; cases are not always solved, nor are they always tidily wrapped up in a single show ... they frequently lurk in the background of several episodes. Scenerywise, one has the pristine Rockies hovering over and providing contrast to the nastiness on Vancouver's streets. Start harassing your local networks now ... it's worth it.
