Best Canadian made TV series
Ask me to name the TV series I appreciated the most and I'll tell you Omerta is THE one. It is the story of mafiosi's in the Montreal underground world. The story is highly credible, realistic. The suspense keeps you breathless from the beginning to the end. "Never a dull moment", is the motto of this series. Dino Tavarone, the "Godfather" in this series, is fantastic. This was his first TV appearance and he made it through the casting because he is a "natural". Michel Côté, the police inspector who tracks the Godfather, has nothing of the stereotype of the policeman. But the dialogues and the screenplay serve him well, making him highly credible. We see so many replays on TV these days, I don't even understand why this one has not been re-broadcasted yet.
