Flashpoint is a police drama television series that aired for 5 season. Originally airing on CTV in Canada, it made it’s debut in the United States in January of 2008.
The Show focuses on a fictional elite tactical unit called the Strategic Response Unit (SRU). The SRU’s job is to resolve extreme situations that regular officers are not trained to handle, including hostage-taking, bomb threats, and heavily armed criminals. The results of the show are ususally determined by a split-second decision, hence the name Flashpoint.
The series title comes from another part of their job, however: getting inside a suspect’s head and discovering his emotional “flashpoint” that triggered the crisis in the first place. Flashpoint is defined as the lowest temperature of ignition.
Flashpoint has a cast mostly made up of Canadians, including: Enrico Colantoni, David Paetkau, Hugh Dillon, Sergio Di Zio, Michael Cram, Mark Taylor, and Ruth Marshall. Amy Jo Johnson who is the only American actress.
