Will ABC bring back MOTIVE for the SUMMER OF 2015?

"Motive" is far and away at the top of my list for new series. It's so nice to have well written plots accompanied by excellent characters acted by consummate professionals. The Canadians and Brits seem to write for viewers capable of actually thinking instead of "dumbing it down" to the lowest common denominator. I don't know why PBS versions like "Broadchurch" get remade into American versions like "Gracepoint." The original versions are better and, if you have to listen more closely and think a bit more about words and accents which may be unfamiliar, well, thinking is a good thing! I watch as much Canadian & British programming as I can find. It's so much better than the typical trash out of Hollywood. I very much look forward to "Motive" returning next summer.

It is good that this is staying with us.
The point of how the killer is known right off
is refreshing. How they discover the known plot
is the interesting part. The cast is a great working
team and the writers keep me interested.

I was hooked from the first show. The two lead detectives are awesome together!! I just wanted more episodes.

Because the Canadians don't have accents that confuse people.

Did not know this was a Canadian show. Love it. By the way Flashpoint is from Canada too. Why is it that we broadcast the original Canadian versions but remake the BBC ones?
