Underwhelming at best
The motives this season are even more nonsensical than in the past "John" episodes. And before I'm accused of being sour grapes for missing Nettles, that's not it! Midsomer has lost its traditional charming storylines in favor of outlandish absurdity - maybe they're trying to appeal to younger audiences? But in the meantime, no one from the Tik Tok generation would be into this, and the hardcore cohort is left saying, "meh."

I Missed This Show & Love the Characters!
There may be a few people out there that call some of the plots "outlandish", but I love the show anyway. It is not too heavy and I love the acting. Some of the characters are snobby and rude, but I enjoy it because the acting is so good. There is so much negativity and bad happening in the world right now...it is nice to watch something that has some mystery, comedy, and great acting in it to sort of get away from it all.

Still got it!
I was so excited for season 22 to be released... at least the first 2 episodes, till next Fall! Now, to be honest, I felt that "The Wolf Hunter of Little Worthy" was a bit... well... strange. Not my favorite MSM episode. It was nice to see Mark Williams, but felt his character portrayal was a bit shaky. However, the end of that episode really blew me away. It was a bit weird that it seemed to be "kinda" Halloween-ish, (with pumpkin carving "effort" at the beginning?), even though it was released in.... well... April, 2021? Even still, the end did bring me to tears. It very much redeemed itself, in the end. Now "The Stitcher Society" was absolutely fabulous. Home run! True to Midsomer Murders tradition. Had no idea where the story-line was going and was shocked, in the end! True Agatha Christie form... where the least likely did the killing! Okay... so everyone just needs to get over Tom vs John and move on. Yes, Nettles is a better actor than Dudgeon, but who was going to be better than Nettles, anyway?! I like that Dudgeon is "different." He's a bit edgier, not quite as charming and relies on "psychology!" Gasp! Different is good! It would be wrong to attempt to have John be like Tom, and Sarah like Joyce. So, yes... get over it and enjoy this terrific casts' wonderful talent! I actually feel the post "Nettles" episodes are more dramatic, especially at the ends of each episode. Also, Fiona Dolman is a HUGE upgrade over Jane Wymark. Clarification: This is not a judgement on Wymark's acting, it's just that Dolman's "Sarah Barnaby" character is FAR more interesting and "involved" than that of "stay at home" Wymark's "Joyce Barnaby." Nothing wrong with stay at home moms! It just shows that MSM has grown with the times. Also, I've grown to like Nick Hendrix's, "Winter," better than all the other "DS's." Point is, the Tom Barnaby era had its strengths and weaknesses, as does the John Barnaby era. It would be nice to see more return appearances by former lead characters. They already did this with the return of Ben Jones, ("Last man out", season 9, episode 3), and it's about time that Tom and Joyce visit cousin John! Why not a visit from niece Cully... and George Bullard needs to get his hands "dirty," again, too! By the way, I am an experienced actor/performer and, even though I've just completed my 4th time through the entire series, I continue to marvel at the incredible acting and wonderful plot/story-lines... again and again and again. I only hope that the show continues on forever! So, yes... 5 stars to one of the greatest... and STILL great... series in history!

What Happened to the Writing?
An absurd, meandering, and, alas, dull plot that detracted from the usual balance of mystery and quirkiness that makes Midsomer enjoyable. What happened? Were the original writers fired in a cost-saving effort? Was the ghost of Sykes allowed to write this one, and he's getting his revenge? Fiona Dolman, in her few fleeting appearances in this episode, seems to be rolling her eyes sullenly, as if thinking "Really? Has it come to this? I was the lead in the Oxford Repertory in Uni". And Betty Barnaby, wise beyond her years, has boycotted this one altogether, likely on the advice of her agent.

Thoroughly enjoyed this episode just as I've enjoyed all of them
I am so happy that the new season is now available. I've watched all of the episodes several times now, and like the light-heartedness of Midsomers Murders which are provocative without being too bloody or heavy-handed like U.S. murder mysteries. It is why I pay this channel.

Misdeeds in Midsummer
Excellent plot lines, dialogue and photography. I am quite pleased with the first two episodes ad hope the rest of the season is as good. Actually, I believe this season is better than last.
