| Hey CBC, I want my tax dollars back!
As the last review mentioned, GUNS is somewhat on par with any other "generic" LA or NY crime drama. One could argue if it were better or worse (and trust me on this, it's worse), but lets put that aside for now. What is not arguable about the show is that if it didn't take place in Toronto, there wouldn't really be anything Canadian about it.

So with that being true, if this were a production of free enterprise, I couldn't complain. They raised enough money, went through with their plan, and shot a very generic American crime drama in Toronto, and even used a cast of talented Canadian actors. Heck, I'd probably be interested to see my home town (T.O) in one of those cool crime shows, and I might even watch it. But since this was a production of the CBC, we the tax payers were the ones who funded this project. The idea of having our "american crime show" take place in Toronto suddenly sounds really ridiculous, especially if it's a multi-million dollar project coming out of our pockets, which it was.

Now don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with American content being broadcast in Canada, but when our tax dollars are used to create Canadian Content, I expect something that is a little more culturally, well... Canadian.

So, instead of making a cheesy gun drama (that actually attacks legitimate gun owners, makes it look like every 10th black person in the city has a handgun, and trivializes gun crime), we could have literally removed hundreds, if not thousands of illegal guns from the streets of Toronto, put forth a real crime reduction campaign, and had enough money left over to buy an episode of GENERIC CRIME SHOW: NEW YORK for us all to watch on CBC tonight. Oh well, maybe the next one they make with our money will be better.
