4.0 out of 5 stars I thought it would be bad - I was wrong, 4 Dec. 2007

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood Ties - Complete Season 1 [DVD][2006] (DVD)
I started watching this with a degree of dread - the memory of other shows at the front of my mind - after a couple of episodes I was hooked.

It has a comfortable familiar feeling with out being just another a copy of previous ideas.

A great series, I highly recommend it.

Note - this is season one and two in the one box set:

Glad to see that someone else has noticed that this set is season 1 &2 together. I never realised and bought season 2 while on holiday in Canada recently then when I got it home I realised I had already seen the episodes.

It was only after I got the set that I realised that it was the two seasons together and not just season one as advertised.
