A "One-of-a-Kind" Series

"From an executive producer of Dexter and The Mentalist, comes Motive, a thrilling crime drama with a unique twist focusing not on who did the crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place."

Ah. The "motive". I get it.

Hey, doesn't every show that has good guys going after bad guys reveal the bad guys' motive? Even "Scooby Doo" has that "I would've gotten away with it if it hadn't been for you meddling kids" moment. I don't quite get the uniqueness that your show is supposed to have, according to your ads you're attempting to pound into my brain on almost every channel.

Oh, I see! You reveal the killer right up front to eliminate any questions (or interest) the viewers may have so that they can just sit back and watch for a suspense-less hour of television.

It's not about who, it's about why? Ah, so your one-of-a-kind show focuses on the intent of the criminal, wouldn't you say? And wouldn't you also say that this criminal is being hunted down by the law so that they can restore peace and order?

I agree, it is a unique show...for ABC.

At least you have at least one big name star to carry your program. And yours is...Lauren Holly, from "Dumb and Dumber" and "Down Periscope". Nice.

Wow. What a hunk of shit. Thanks, Canada.
