Character actor William Fichtner has been in everything. Many a television series and film you look and he’s there. Always turning in a solid performance but obviously never given a chance to carry a series himself. Crossing Lines changes all that. This is his baby. He is the main man for a change and demonstrates that whoever gave him this chance was right to do so. The whole cast is strong in this NBC show. The locations are real plus exotic and the writing is strong. All this plus you get some Donald Sutherland to boot. The stories of international criminals and the elite team that hunts them down sometimes verge on being soap operaish but I don’t think it wants to be taken too seriously. This is a series that is just trying to by watchable and I say, what more could you ask for? Plus they are smart enough to keep you hanging on for next season as they leave a lot
