  1. I really like this series. I miss it when it is not on. Seasonal breaks are to long but everyone needs a rest sometime.

    1. A great show & the characters all work well together. Great story lines. It’s a different concept & it touches on great drama. I hope they get renewed. There isn’t anything as good as this show on TV.

  2. As a national correspondent who got his start in Anchorage, I love it. The Anchorage Daily News won 3 Pulitzer prizes for public service reporting in the last 30 years, more than almost any newspaper. Any idea if it will return for a season two?

  3. I’ve really enjoyed the show. All of the actors did a fantastic job. It was great seeing Hillary Swank I hadn’t seen her in anything in quite a while, sure hoping for a second season.

  4. This is an excellent show with a difficult subject matter. It is treated with respect by the actors and I will miss it if they are not renewed. Hillary Swank is perfect, but I really warmed up to her partner, Roz, quickly, and Jeff Perry is a long time favorite! I hope they bring it back for Season 2!!
