A former coworker turned me on to the Canadian TV crime drama, "Murdoch Mysteries". The series is set in the early 1900s, with the title character being an ahead-of-his-time Toronto homicide detective. Many of the story lines are quite contrived, but by sheer coincidence last night I watched an episode dealing with a stolen Tesla developed death ray. The weapon was being offered for sale by a sinister female mastermind to the world's powers. This was at least the second episode that featured Murdoch working along side Tesla.
As an aside to "Red Green" fans, a reoccuping Murdoch character is a ruthless Canadian military intelligence operative who makes life difficult for the Toronto Constabulary. It took me a few episodes to recognize the actor portraying this intense, hard ass is the same guy who played "Ranger Gord", one of the more off-the-wall loons in Possum Lodge.
