The "hero" of this series is probably one of the most obnoxious people you'll ever watch on tv. He's a little Napoleaon, mean, mean spirited and not a little misogynistic. However...as the series progresses we see LaPlante - the creator/writer - finally making him a LITTLE more tolerable. Also, around volume six the actress playing the female lead changes and frankly, it's for the better.
There is one weird thing I've discovered about Amazon...when I watch this on my computer I have all of the volumes (about 20, I think, with two episodes in each volume) but when I stream it on my tv, a number of the episodes just disappear. Can't access them...weird and annoying.
Anyhow, if you like police detective shows from the UK with a bit of a twist, this one is pretty good as it ages. The early shows only rate a 3 star but the later ones I'd give a 4/5 star rating.
