  1. the show seems to have a western style crime genre feel to it from the preview. is it just in canada or is it a new trend that they are casting asian leads in series. i knew about fresh off the boat b/c they made a big deal about it, but this is the first i heard of this. it’s weird how it’s canadian but half the dialog is in cantonese/mandarin.

    1. @m0m0

      Fresh Off The Boat is an American sitcom produced by a multi-billion dollar media conglomerate (ABC) which has a much higher production value and casts. This, on the other hand, is produced in Canada by OMNI that is owned by Rogers Media that has never produced anything worth discussing. Apples and oranges…

  2. Congrats to her! I really liked her in Succession War and wish she got some recognition for that role. Alas, the series had poor ratings and no buzz.

    I will have to check out this show.

  3. LOL! I’m laughing while I am watching the trailer. The quality of acting and the dialogue exchanged in multiple languages makes it looks so awkward!

    Which leads me to believe her award is as much of a joke as this show. Lol!

    Moreover, there’s nothing prestigious about the Canadian Screen Awards because Canadian films are garbage. Most Canadians don’t even watch Canadian shows. The only reason why Canadian films exist is because it is subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Canadian films without public subsidy won’t even stay afloat. LOL! I am in Canada btw. Lol!

    1. @anon lol, my thoughts exactly. Winning a Canadian acting award is probably even below winning a TVB award. We Canadians don’t even watch Canadian shows, and it’s pretty much force fed to us though thr CBC.

  4. I happened to watch 2 hours worth of this series and the dialogue is seriously not good with some unintentional laughable moments. There are actually 2 actors of actual consequence in this entire thing: Selena and Byron Mann. Safe to say, I have not continued watching.

  5. Keep it up Selina! I believe you will do well one day. You have improved and you deserve a good script.
