I'm watching 3 cop shows on ION Television set in Toronto: Flashpoint, The Listener, and Rookie Blue. Sometimes, I get some pretty interesting angles of the skyline like on CSI: Miami.

I've watched the full series of the first two (the Listener is still running I believe) but never even heard of the third. Is it any good so far?

The best Toronto series I've seen personally is probably ReGenesis, but it wasn't a police show. More medical mystery combined with some action.

You get the best city and skyline shots in Flashpoint but the best cop show set in Toronto would be Murdoch Mysteries. Not a lot of good skyline shots in that one though: it's set in 1895.

2008 Toronto: Flashpoint

Rookie Blue is new. I watched it in the beginning and the blond cop who looks like Sharon Stone is supposedly lesbian or bisexual. I thought it was appropriate being set in Toronto, but then they backed off on that and looks like she's been in a relationship with a man ever since. I didn't like that.

DP, this is one of the few skyline shots that actually does Miami justice. Thanks for finding it!

In that last picture the Ice condos remind me of one of those big dump trucks that have the exhaust stack sticking up and a little lid on it that bobs up and down as the smoke comes out!

You Have Been To Downtown Houston, Right QuantumX, Our SSC Friendly Family World Super Moderator and # 1 World SSC Forums Friend to Everyone
It's Really More Exciting There Underground Downtown Houston Steve !!
Under Most Downtown Houston Towers Lies the Longest Lines of Walking Tunnels , I Have ever seen in any United States City, and I heard mostly Paid by the Oil Companies Towers in Downtown Houston and very crowded with People during Rush Hours and Lunch Time , also used to go Underground to the City Parking Garages'
Greatly Planned before Most Towers started to Rise in the early 80's and still very widely Used today to Get around Downtown Houston Intesd of walking Outside in the rain

I love how imposing Toronto's downtown core is from street level. Tall and massive.
