11 Reasons Why You Need To Watch Burden Of Truth

at .  Updated at .

7. Smalltown Heroes

Smalltown Heroes
Let's talk about some of the characters. William (Billy) Crawford is the smalltown lawyer who fights for his neighbor to keep his kid. He's everybody's friend, beloved by the town, but he can stir up some trouble if he has to, especially if it concerns protecting his niece Molly. Owen Beckbie is a good cop trying to fight corruption and woo single mom, Dianne Evans. Dianne, for her part, is a dedicated school guidance counselor who will do anything for her kids. These are not the heroes who wear spandex on the majority of CW shows currently running, but the unsung heroes of the real world who will fight the good fight no matter what.

8. Family Dynamics

Family Dynamics
The heart of this show is the people and how they relate to each other. Both the Hanley's and the Matheson's showcase strong father/daughter relationships that go through the wringer and will never be the same again. Meanwhile, people like Billy Crawford and Owen Beckbie are around to prove that sometimes it's the family you make that matters. Not to mention two girls who find the family that they never knew that had. Secrets always come out, but do they bring people together, or tear families apart?

9. It's Canadian!

It's Canadian!
I find it hard to believe that I'm the only Canadaphile out there. Do you know how many shows we've come to love have been filmed in Canada? How about how many great actors were born there, Kreuk included? Canada is beautiful and a show that not only films in Canada, but is set in Canada and produced by a Canadian network is beautiful and different. Television is meant to take you places you've never been. Burden of Truth can give you a real Canadian experience because it is unapologetically Canadian.

10. Nothing Small About The Talent Of This Cast

Nothing Small About The Talent Of This Cast
We've already talked about Kristin Kreuk, but what about the rest of the cast. As we have stated, Canadian actors know how to bring it. You may recognize Diane Evans portrayed by Nicola Correia-Damude who played Maryse Lightwood on the popular Freeform show Shadowhunters. Alex Carter who plays David Hanley has over one hundred credits to his name, not the least of which being Detective Vartann on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Peter Mooney who plays Billy Crawford was on Canadian medical drama Saving Hope following his role as Nick Collins on Rookie Blue. Meanwhile, relative newcomers such as Sara Thompson and Star Slade are definitely actresses to watch.

11. Season Two

Season Two
According to CW Press, here's what to expect for season two. "After fighting for the justice of five sick girls in her hometown of Millwood, corporate attorney Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) finds herself at a top law firm in Winnipeg ready to make a fresh start away from her previous firm. There, a new client draws her into the shadowy world of hackers, activists, and a political movement that won’t take any prisoners. The case leads Joanna through many twists and turns, until she eventually becomes a killer’s target. Her estranged father tries to assist her, which leads to an event that will change both their lives forever. BURDEN OF TRUTH is produced by ICF Films, Eagle Vision and Entertainment One (eOne)."

The CW Quotes

Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.

Cheryl: Ummm, did you have a lobotomy for breakfast? You’re wearing my signature color!
Toni: You don’t own the color red. Red existed before you.
Cheryl: Not at Riverdale High. Here, I invented red. I am red.
[Cheryl snaps her fingers and two girls stand behind her]
Cheryl: Sorry, but this school is not big enough for the both of us, faux-pink lady. And I was here first. Go to Centerville High or Westerberg, I don’t care. But you have until first bell Monday to clear every trace of yourself out of these halls. Copy?
[Cheryl flips her hair in Toni’s face and walks away]
