Fabulous... Until season 3
I LOVED Crossing Lines, right up until season 3. Half the cast left, new writers were brought on and the show went from being intelligent, fascinating and intense to just another blase version of Law and Order. Elizabeth Mitchell brings the whole show down several levels. She looks ridiculous next to the better actors from seasons 1-2 who now play smaller rolls. The writers make the actors explain everything to the audience, and repeat everything multiple times which kills any flow or dynamic the characters might have. The original actors try so hard to keep the magic of the previous seasons, but the writers don't leave any room for that.
Overall, I'd highly recommend watching seasons 1-2, but do yourself a favor and stop there. Season 3 will only disappoint.
