Wow, I love mystery/crime shows but have had to branch out to UK and Canada b/c the US Mystery/Crime shows are all "from the headlines" (BLAH, please, we know who you are talking about and we'd rather see something unique and original) or too political (please stop this nonsense, it's supposed to be entertainment, not entertaining only to those people who you like, and a slam at everyone else), or repeat and copy so many stories from other shows that I think I've seen it, even though it's a brand new episode.
I have avoided Frost because there were very few reviews, and the actual description just didn't make me want to watch it. This is the BEST series from the UK Mystery/Crimes I have seen, thank goodness for the sale that made it affordable. I only have one complaint, the ridiculously short "seasons"/"Volumes". I'd be pretty upset if I spent $40-50 on a two or three disc set, with three or four episodes.
It's creepy, spooky, foggy, and the music is unbelievable at the beginning. You've got to love FROST, he's so loveable, so wonderful, and I just can't stand his boss, who could care less about solving a case, or convisting the guilty person, it's all about politics and what looks good - that makes me so mad.....but not mad anough to not watch, which is a fine line.
I needed a new, creepy, curl up before bed crime show that isn't so gruesome or action oriented that it makes my heart race while I'm watching-cause then I can't go to sleep right after. This is the Perfect, creepy, go to sleep mystery. It's hard to explain but if you like the creepy, foggy, cozy mystery types, this is the one for you. I bought season one a few weeks ago and have already finished 1, 2, and started 3, and now ordered 4. Now, there's nothing else I want to watch before bed, this has the perfect amount of crime and creepy without the heart pounding action that I prefer in prime time.
If you like a slick, perfect looking, modern, all the cops could be runway models (male and female), high heels, designer clothes, high-tech super slick looking, HD quality crime, then this is not for you. This is regular people, regular looking, regular clothes, regular cops, regular police station but great stories and characters, and a super mystery factor.
