    No press release from ABC on how AFHV trounced the competition at 7:00 and Castle tied the other shows at 10:00? I’m stunned.

    I like this show.

  • LovingLostGirl

    I love this show. Puts a twist on the typical cop drama. And each cast member seems to be dealing with their own issue on the side of the main story line. Nice arc for the show…as long as NBC continues the show and allows the arcs to play out.

    the show has a distinct european feel to it…did nbc buy this show from a European outlet or is it an original production?

  • feltso gudinya

    I checked wiki and found out — get this — crossing lines is an English language french television production which opened a monte carlo tv festival and then premiered in italy this past june…got all that…phew…
