This canadian production, The Fixer, about a renegade and a NAIA investigator trying to go against a conspiracy creating controlled accidents in oil ships, forests and more.
Suspicious of the “official answers” to an oil rig disaster, Ellie Molaro (Robertson), investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, spearheads a private investigation with a secret tipster named Carter (Dane). Carter claims that a conspiracy of “Fixers” are behind the worst disasters in the country, all rigged to manipulate the stock market, and reap billions for a select few. Now, their largest operation in decades is an impending, catastrophic event targeting Washington, D.C. and the only way they can succeed is if Ellie and Carter are among the casualties.
Grey´s Anatomy alum Eric Dane is a believable kick ass, and Kathleen Robertson is the daughter of a family of victims in one of those rigged accidents, then turned hardened investigator.
Four one-hour episodes for this miniseries, that starts with the ending and then flashbacks; and then again moves forward. Who is in the conspiracy? Who is not? Who can Carter and Ellie trust? No one? Everybody will betray them, the past will come to haunt them.
Not to give away too many plot twists, but the old adage of “Trust No One” is really good advice in this show.
The budget with which the show was made is noticeably lower than most other broadcast options, and it shows. But it is still a good option to keep in the DVR and watch as you see fit. Probably not a must watch, but a good four hours story that won´t disappoint if you go with your expectations checked.
