Calling All Canadians!Intelligence returns on Monday.
We'd like to hear your opinions regarding the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. drama Intelligence, which appears likely to be the only TV series playing in North America in which the lead character owns a lumberyard. Of course, it's not your typical yard, even for British Columbia: It's a front for the owner, slickly coiffed Jimmy Reardon, to launder drug profits. Like many LBM dealers, he's a 3rd-generation member of the family business (at least the bad parts of the business), and Reardon's character bio on the Intelligence Web site describes him as having "a diligent work ethic, which has resulted in the family business flourishing." He's also said to be "gentle and ruthless at the same time." Canadian TV blogger Diane Kristine says the lumberyard set appears every few episodes, but usually not as often as another of Reardon's "legitimate" businesses: a strip club. Kristine runs a blog called TV, Eh? So to her fellow Canadians, the question is: How good is "Intelligence," eh?
