I have only seen five or six episodes of the hit British mystery series Midsomer Murders, but it is safe to say that I am hooked (some people have their addictions to Doctor Who, but for me, it’s this show). I have always been a fan of British Mysteries, preferring them to nearly every other American detective series, with the exception of my all-time favorite show, Law & Order, which no longer airs. There is just something about these shows that make them far superior to something that anyone else in the world could produce. My first taste of them came via the multiple Sherlock Holmes series’ of the 1980′s, which starred Jeremy Brett. I guess I was drawn to it because the format and pacing of the episodes were so different from what we have in America. Everything is much slower, and much darker, and that seems to extend to all their different shows. Since first viewing them when I was little, I then found a few more interesting titles on PBS Masterpiece Mystery, which samples many shows that are popular over in England. My latest find has been Midsomer Murders, and yes, they are even more addicting than anything else I have ever watched.
