When two young drug runners are found murdered along Highway 401, newly promoted Superintendent Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon) is assigned the case with his new partner Ivan Sujic (Michael Nardone). Mike also suspects foul play in the disappearance of Sujic's wife Katya and that Sujic himself may know more than he claims. With Mike's wife Audrey (HÃ©lÃ¨ne Joy) pregnant and his daughter Sadie (Laurence Leboeuf) a rookie on the police force, things may be looking up, but one thing that remains the same is that in Durham County, nothing is as it seems and secrets never stay buried.

In fact, the one show I would compare Durham County to the most in this regard is The Wire. The Wire was such a complex show and every single character had such a wealth of depth to them and the dialogue and acting were all superb, as was the writing that it often felt like you weren't even watching a show, but were actually watching a real life documentary.
This show has that effect on me as well. I was thinking this as I was watching Ivan and Mike talking to Ivan's friend right before they went target shooting. Ivan was having a conversation and he was talking about why they call the man "Pansy", and then Pansy lifts his shirt to show a huge scar that he claims Ivan gave him.
A lot of shows don't bother giving a lot of back story on characters to provide depth. It's all about the here and now. With so many shows getting canceled early without getting a chance to build the audience, I suppose that can be expected. Or maybe it's one of the reasons WHY it got canceled.
Durham County has always been a very uncomfortable show to get into. It's not for the queasy or the easily offended. If you can't take scenes of violence or torture or crimes against women, then this probably isn't your show. However those who are able to get through it are handsomely rewarded with a top notch intelligent show that is richly layered with various levels of detail.
And as I wrote in my previous reviews of the series, this isn't a show that's violent for violence sake.Read more ›
