I loved the books in this series and am thrilled that a new one is coming. I had never noticed there were dvds too. I really enjoyed them. Agree they arent perfect, but what tv show is? I am going to get the second one tomorrow. KA is the most intriguing author alive. She has no genre!

I thought I would enjoy this series, unfortunately I was wrong. Watched some of the first disk, FF through the rest and did not watch the second disk or any of series 2. Just boring!

Jason Isaacs is a very good actor - unfortunately the writing and plot of this series badly lets him down. Suggesting that there is 'intelligent dialogue' in this series is akin to saying that USA Today reports serious journalism. When the adult actors started to refer to 'Mommy & Daddy' I reached for the 'off switch' - quickly followed by the sick bag. I wasted an hour of my life with this nonsense.

Jason Isaacs (so brilliant in "The State Within") is almost as good in this twisty series with subplots. Superb acting, eccentric characters (Sylvia Syms for one), intelligent dialogue laced with macabre humor, often emotionally gripping. Not-so-pretty stories with some graphic, gruesome images. A good soundtrack.

Negatives: the Scottish accents are very thick and there is some PC silliness. Hard to believe Isaacs' character would ever be attracted to the shrill, frankly unattractive DI Monroe. But these flaws are not enough to deter anyone from enjoying this drama.

i'm sooo hooked! Like a lot of series, the first few episodes are a bit flat, but by the end of the first episode on disc 2 i was addicted. I love these characters. The stories are ok, but you stick with it for the characterization. The lead played painfully wonderfully by Jason Isaacs is so enduring you can't help but want to find out what happens in his screwy (not screwball!) life next. Highly recommended for anyone liking UK mystery series.

Aside from the closed-captions - which are tolerable but not the best designed - and the fact that they've made the main character into a junkie (cig addict), he and the characters in each of the stories are very engaging. Very well done. And Edinburgh area accents are easy (unlike those from Glasgow and Aberdeen, which can sound like Finnish to Americans)

good show but way tooooo many repeat flashbacks. When the protagonist is looking at something in the water in episode 3, we really don't need another flashback to know what's going on in his mind. We've seen the scene many times and don't need it spelled out again!

Sexual Content: A very disturbing scene where a child provides sexual pleasure for her own father. Sickening and unnecessary.

EuSei Jul 31, 2013

Violence: Some very violent scenes, with lots of blood.
