An Eye for An Eye
There was something about this episode I liked. I think it had something to do with a lot of the episode being filmed outside in the snow. What can I say… it’s hot as heck where I live most of the year.

The Wolf had a great part in this episode as well  :laugh:

The Man Who Knew Too Little
This one should have been titled “Poor Ray”.  Good episode, not great though. A bit too predictable throughout.

A real fun episode! A lot of great banter between Ray and Fraser.

A good episode focusing on Dief. I like it that they bring up the possibility that Dief being a wild animal could really be dangerous.

The Wild Bunch
My favorite episode so far! Comedy, drama, suspense and action all rolled up into one. It would have made a good 2 part story. They could have expanded a bit on the other dogs missing and how Diefenbaker and his gang got involved and decided to take down the dog-napping ring.

The Blue Line
Meh
Not good, not bad, just there. Good to see Ray with his car again, although it does take a beating.  :laugh:

I guess that was it.

I thought the story was a bit all over the place too. They should have picked one sub-plot, either the 'helping the pro-athlete with his whatever issue' or the 'remind the childhood friend why he got into the game'. Either would have made a good episode but trying to do both didn't work this time.

This is another great episode. Gotta love the episodes that center around Deifenbaker. And as was mentioned above... I am glad they touched on the fact that having a wolf in the city can be a dangerous thing.

The Blue Line

I felt this was a pretty good... if not somewhat average episode. It did indeed seem like the comedy was missing from this episode. Plus I did like how they used a voice-over for Fraser's father when he was reading the diary. That makes much more sense to me then a ghost or him being in Fraser's mind for this series. Though who knows... I may get used to the idea yet.

Writer: Paul Haggis (Created By), Peter Lefcourt (Writer)
Director: George Mendeluk
Cast: Paul Gross (Constable Benton Fraser), David Marciano (Detective Ray Vecchio), Beau Starr (Lt. Harding Welsh), Daniel Kash (Detective Louis Gardino), Tony Craig (Detective Jack Huey), Catherine Bruhier (Elaine), Ramona Milano (Francesca), Jim Bracchitta (Frank Zuko), Rod Wilson (Joey Paducci), Shay Duffin (Father Behan), Louis Di Bianco (Charlie), Sam Coppola (Cabrini), Gordon Pinsent (Fraser Sr. (voice)), Bud Tanner (Kenny), Maria Ricossa (Head Mover), Nahanni Johnstone (Store Clerk), Claire Cellucci (Choir #4), Eric Robertson (Organist), Brandi Ward (Ursula)

This episode was always really memorable for me. I loved how Ray takes on Frank Zuko.
And finally Francesca appears again :)

The Deal
This is a good episode. Like Tom I liked how Ray took care of Frank Zuko. And was good to see Francesca again. The episode was a little light on the comedy though.

An Invitation to Romance

Now this episode had plenty of comedy in it... from that irritating but hilarious woman Fraser had to follow all over to Ray in that Mountie uniform.... there was plenty in this episode to laugh at.
