Decent but completely different
This certainly has a different feel than the original series. It's a decent crime drama, and it continues to showcase the women's personalities and skills. However, it tries to pack too many social issues into each episode. Of course, the issues are important, as they drive peoples' actions, but it often feels forced, as if they approached each episode as the last and had to make every possible statement they could. Overall, it's enjoyable.
Additional points I make address other reviews. Those who ranted about this being a horrible American series should know it is not American, but rather it is Canadian. It is produced by a UK company and filmed in Canada. Also, I cannot speak for every inconsistency regarding misused vernacular of the time period, but those who commented on the US not being in Vietnam in the 1950s are incorrect. The MAAG went to Vietnam to advise in the 50s.
