Flashpoint: My New Obsession

Have you ever started watching a show and think that is show is alright? Not particularly bad but not outstanding at least that is your first impression? Well, that is how I felt about my new obsession. I first started watching this show because there was nothing else on Thursday nights. But now I am hooked. Even though they stopped making this show in 2012 (yes I am a little late to the boat.) I still watch it every chance I get on ion TV. Plus I have Amazon Prime, so I get the episodes for free.

The show in question is Flashpoint. This show is shot in Canada and has the principal cast made of up of all Canadians actors except for one. I have truly fallen head over heels obsessed with this show. Most of the time I spend blogging I always have the television on for background noise but with this show, I blog during commercials :). I find myself setting goals to that as a reward I get to watch an episode. Like if I get this and this done then I can watch. Have you ever seen Flashpoint? It is a cop show that follows the SRU (Strategic Response Unit) as they diffuse high tension situations. These can be negotiating for a hostage release, talking someone down from committing suicide, to finding kidnapped victims, and solving crimes. I think all the actors on the show are brilliant.


But my favorite is the one who plays Spike also known as Mike Scarlatti. He got his nickname Spike because he used to have spiked hair. He is so awkward in social settings that you can’t help but love him. He is also a computer geek. He is not the average drop dead gorgeous guy like Sam, another character on the show but he has an enduring quality that you just can’t help but love. His character is not afraid to show emotion even when he is diffusing a bomb. Now talk about an awesome character. So tell me have you ever seen Flashpoint? If so who is your favorite character?
