Flashpoint: Summer's Guilty Pleasure

Some days, I just feel so lucky. Like the day I discovered the television show Flashpoint. It is a Canadian show, but so many good shows were, that then was purchased to air in the US by CBS. Now I am just so hooked on it.

I love shows about cops and this one is extra special because it is about a swat team that operates in Vancouver. Here is the cast:

Enrico Colantoni - Sgt. Gregory Parker (photos)

Micheal Cram - Kevin "Wordy" Wordsworth

Sergio Di Zio - Mike Scarlatti

Hugh Dillon - Ed Lane (photos)

Amy Jo Johnson - Julianna "Jules" Callaghan (photos)

Ruth Marshall - Dr. Amanda Luria

David Paetkau - Sam Braddock (photos)

Mark Taylor - Lewis Young (photos)

Enrico Colantoni is a super actor and adds seasoning to the cast since most of them are virtual newcomers. They are all trained as snipers in the show, and I ask you, how sexy is that? Damn sexy! But they are all also trained as negotiators. So they can kill or talk. I feel faint.

Of course there is a cute guy on the show, hence its interest for me. His name is David Paektau. All I can say is yum! I'd love to be frisked by him in a dark alley. I think we need to use the handcuffs baby. But, he kind of has a thing for Jules, who is played by Amy Jo Johnson.

Can you believe in this day and age, Jules is having trouble being accepted into the team? Well, it is true. She has to make her bones, so to speak. And she does in the clip I have posted at the end.

How could I not post a beefcake photo of David? Sorry it is not a better one. I heard that he took part in a Victoria's Secret Catalog shoot, but I could not find that photo. You will have to settle for this one. He still needs to work on his chest a bit.

Episode 7 just aired and the next episode will air on Thursday September 11 at 10 PM on CBS in the US and Canada. Thirteen episodes are planned in all. So it is not too late to begin watching.
