Editorial Reviews

Flashpoint is a drama which depicts the emotional journey into the tough, risk-filled lives of a group of cops in the SRU (inspired by Toronto's Emergency Task Force). It's a unique unit that rescues hostages, busts gangs, defuses bombs, climbs the sides of buildings and talks down suicidal teens. Members of a highly-skilled tactical team, they're also trained in negotiating, profiling and getting inside the suspect's head to diffuse the situation to try and save lives.

Special Features

- Commentary on "Scorpio" by Director David Frazee
- Flashpoint
: Behind The Scenes - Season 1
- The Human Cost of Heroism

Simply saying how great this show is is a tremendous understatement. From the end of the very first season I'm always left wondering if it'll return for another season and am always greatly pleased when it does. I became a "fan" of this show on Facebook, and there was a 5 minute clip previewing the upcoming season. At one point in it the cast and the producers explain what the word flashpoint means (I had always wondered why the show was called "Flashpoint" and never understood why). So when they said that it has to do with the moment in which the decision is made about what to do in a situation, it made perfect sense. It's that sort of thing that I think makes this show so great. The decisions this team has to make at the time of the "flashpoint". Some people might get caught up in the fact that this show is or should be all about taking down the "bad guys" but if those people looked more closely they'd see this show really has to do with how these calls affect the team and their own lives. The Season 4 premiere episode "Collateral Damage" is a great example. You've got a guy who has been accused of killing his 6 month old daughter and on the other side you've got SRU Ed Lane trying to deal with his wife and her pregnancy. By the end of the episode when you find out what really happened to the 6 month old baby, you also start to see the *possibility* of what Ed might have to go through with having a new baby and the positives and negatives that come with having a baby.

And, to the other customer who reviewed this show, as much you want to think everything is black and white when it comes to shows like this, nothing is EVER that simple. The world in general is not a black and white world and DOES have many shades of grey.

I've been watching Flashpoint on Netflix because I wanted to get caught up and start watching season 4. I missed most of seasons 2 and 3 because I was attending band camp. So after watching up to the episode "Acceptable Risk" on Netflix, I decided to buy all three season, because I absolutely LOVE this show! So today, my DVDs come in the mail and I immediately go to the season 3 DVD so I can watch the next episode. To my disappointment, the last episode in the season three DVD is "Acceptable Risk." This greatly saddened me and now I have to go find another place to watch the last episodes of season three. :/ If you're looking to buy ALL the episodes from season three, look somewhere else. Although, if you're content with just buying up to "Acceptable Risk", buy all three seasons from Amazon :) Nevertheless, I'm glad I now have them on DVD so I don't have to wait for Netflix to load :D

My whole family is a huge fan of this show. It offers much more than other tv dramas, in my opinion.
They keep it clean, unlike Grey's Anatomy and other sleazy shows like that.
Love, love, love this show! **The writers are wonderful**. Glad to have the 3rd season out now!
This show has a lot of humanity in it, which I think makes it special.

I truly agree, this show does not get the respect it deserves. It should be a full time, prime time show. It is real and beliveable. It deals with what the individuals go through as police officers on the job and how it affects their home life. It shows them as caring human beings with feelings, who do make mistakes. The actors are fantastic, especially, Enrico and Hugh Dillon.

It's not phony in any way. Most shows on TV are for 17 yrs. and under. I can't understand why CBS or any other station will not pickup this show permanently. Is it because it's from Canada or are they aiming for the simple minded?

Who wants to watch all these mindless shows or reality shows.

The reason the episodes are "messed up" is because CBS only purchased a portion of the episodes from Canada. It is one of the highest ranked shows in Canada. If you do your research, you will see that it is CBS that is deciding what is called "Season 2 or Season 3" and also the episodes are shown out of order from the original ones in Canada. The ones on TV right now that CBS calls "Season 4" are actually the remaining episodes from Season 3. Hope this helps straighten out the confusion!

This is the best TV show on TV. It's a shame it's only a summer fill in. It's refreshing, realistic and beliveable.

It shows you what the team goes through on the job and how it effects them off the job.

It's not a violent, blood & guts, unbeliable show. You can't help but love the charters, especially Greg Parker and Ed Lang and the show. It's better than those stupid reality shows, or dancing shows The show is not inappropriate, with language or sexually.

The whole team knows each other and their needs job wise and as a team, which makes the team work.

This is a reality show.

This show is absolutely one of the best shows that CBS had to offer after their cancellation of Numb3rs. CBS is stupid to cancel airing this show, thankfully Ion is picking it up. Hopefully they will at least still continue to sell the DVD's so I may continue to buy them.
CBS not airing this anymore is probably one of the dumbest moves since ending Numb3rs. For this reason I refuse to watch anymore shows on CBS even if I also enjoy Criminal Minds, CSI NY and Blue Bloods. I will watch Criminal Minds with Flashpoint on ION.
Also again CBS messed up the order of the episodes, as this is the end part of season 2 and the begining of Season 3 as CTV has made it.
