Midsomer Murders is a long running English murder mystery series. The series is set in fictional Midsomer county, a picturesque, quintessentially rural English place. The one issue with the place seems to be a murder rate approximately similar to Fallujah, Iraq (kidding but barely). Every episode features at least one body as the guest of honor and most have 3 or more, all murdered in amazingly creative ways.
Season 18 just went live on Netflix and I will be reviewing the series after I post my review of Pickup On South Street. I’ve been having a few issues getting screen caps off of my blu-ray copy. Blu-rays can be more than a little problematic in that regard. If everything goes well, expect the review tomorrow.
Longmire season 5 just went live on Netflix.
If you’re already a fan, the season so far is the same quality as previous seasons.
If you haven’t seen the series, Longmire is a hybrid show. A modern police drama set in rural Wyoming, it also incorporates elements from classic westerns. The main character is a walking anachronism, an old west style sheriff trying to navigate a modern world of forensics, drugs and modern technology, while keeping true to his sense of honor.
The previous season ended on a spectacular cliffhanger and the new season hits the ground running immediately. The show’s switch from A&E to Netflix seems to have been fairly seamless and if anything, this season looks to be even better than the last 2.
