One of the Best Shows ever - I am heartbroken it's over

"Being in the U.S. I never heard of Intelligence but came across it on Amazon. I loved it instantly and pre-ordered season 2 as soon as I could. I rec'd season 2 3 days ago and I have one episode left. My plan was to stretch it out as long as possible since it is the final season and the first night had to force my self to stop after one disc. The second night I was not so lucky - I stayed up all night watching the next 6 hours. One episode before bed - that was the plan...watched until 5 a.m. Now I'm on the last disc and so sad. My family has been bugging me since I gave them season 1 - where's season 2? Kept forgetting it hadn't been released yet...no matter how many times I told them.I know they will be equally heartbroken when they finish it. I would love to see these actors all in another crime show soon - but something lasting more than 2 seasons. When you see a great show like this only last 2 seasons you've got to wonder what were they thinking? There's no way it was replaced by anything better - no possible way. Now I'm hunting for more Canadian crime shows I may have missed because they do it so well - Davinci's Inquest, Intelligence, and Cold Squad (not on DVD-but airing on SLEUTH TV) are all great shows-Davinci and Intel are pure genius with amazing actors who you truly believe are who they are. Ian Tracey is so talented. I completely believed him as Mic Leary and never thought I could turn around a believe him as Jimmy Reardon when he played such a great cop. But Jimmy Reardon is just as believable, perfectly played and the rest of the cast is equally fabulous. I always find myself rooting for the cops to put the bad guys way....Intel is the opposite -I like the actors, and want to root for the "good guys" but by the end of every episode, I'm on the edge of my seat rooting for Jimmy and his pals. What a great show - cancelling it had to be the worst mistake ever-that says alot considering how many good shows get cancelled by the idiots in network & cable TV, while a bunch of trash continues to air year after year."
First-Rate Cop Show

(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you like gritty cop shows, then you will love the Canadian-made INTELLIGENCE. It's as good as THE WIRE, THE SHIELD and HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREETS, which are certainly the most realistic crime series ever seen on television.
Set in Vancouver, B.C., the drama takes you inside the murky worlds of organized crime and the cops who keep tabs on it. The leading character (Ian Tracey) is a good father, respected businessman and a major drug smuggler. On the other side of the fence is Klea Scott, the ambitious head of the city's Organized Crime Unit. She not only has the crooks to contend with, but also her colleagues in the intelligence community who are trying to sabotage her information-gathering efforts to bring down the "bad guys".
A quirk of fate brings these two key characters together in an uneasy alliance that could help or destroy both.
INTELLIGENCE, Season Two (12 episodes/4-discs) from Acorn Media, continues this tense drama, picking up the action where Season One's nail-biting cliff-hanger ending left off.
DVD extras include a discussion with series creator Chris Haddock and "Behind the Scenes" clips.

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is an excellent series--well-written and acted, and smart--and well worth the investment. I give Season One five stars and Season Two four stars. The disparity is due to the ending of Season Two, which serves as the series' ending, as well, because a planned third season was cancelled. The cancellation of Season Three appears to have left the writers with too little time to provide satisfying resolutions of the series' story lines, and the ending feels facile and rushed."
Poor Decision Making

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I titled this review Poor Decision Making because whoever decided to end this series knows nothing about quality. This is clearly one of the best acted, best scripted and most interesting shows on television and it is truly sad it is ending after only 2 seasons. Klea Scott and Ian Tracey lead with stunning performances week in and week out. Matt Frewer is brilliant. The writing will have you guessing what comes next and the stories are totally engaging. Ostensibly the Canadian The Wire, it is every bit as good as that excellent series.
I guess I am grateful for this show seeing the light of day, given that some genius decided to end it after 2 seasons. Let's have MORE of this quality television instead of reality shows and other trash that shouldn't see the light of day."
