This is the best show on TV. If you are not watching, you should rent/buy season 1 and then the same with 2. It does start off a bit slow but by episode 5, it is amazing. I recommend this to anyone who likes a show with action, drama, suspense, and humor. A combination of Alias and '24' but even better.

Winter Solstice is an intense drama and all the action is internal. LaPaglia is such a fine actor and every nuance of his bottled up Jim comes through, as he struggles to not only be a good father, but to find a direction in his own life.
