    Admirable film.

    Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.

    A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.

    By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.

    I have yet to figure out any of the murders but I love watching. Great characters and even with turnover the story lines never suffer. Have enjoyed all the DIs but especially LOVE Ardal <3

    If we could give this a -10, it would be appropriate. We were thoroughly entertained by the first two seasons; the characters were delightful from the beginning, the chemistry was spot on and the 'who-done-its' always kept us guessing. However, the writers destroyed everything good about this series when they killed off DI Richard Poole - they should be fired! What on earth were they thinking! We will not be watching any more episodes and we will be dissuading anyone from getting hooked on this show.

    The U.K. and the BBC have done it again. Excellent writing, interesting and intelligent mysteries, plot twists, outstanding actors and guest appearances coupled with a beautiful locale. A small Caribbean island, a British protectorate, coupled with a small police team. Doesn't take long before the characters draw you in.Each episode involves each murder beginning with the very first. They island's small police detachment is led by a U.K. DI or detective inspector. Thus it begins. The murder of the original DI is the first to undergo investigation. A new U.K. inspector us brought in from the London MET. A quirky, stodgy, characterized version of a man. Suit and tie every episode which involves the poor man in suffering the Caribbean heat. He solves the murder which sets the format for the series. A murder, the investigation, the in the 'm sat 10-15 minutes a gathering of all the suspects in one location for the reveal of the murderer. Did I mention the lead DI is also brilliant?What follows over the course of the series is a very intelligently written murder investigation with the very talented actors playing the police team. Interject some more talented actors as guests and you find an entertaining and addictive series.OK reveal. After two seasons our intrepid DI is himself murdered. I admit at first I was disappointed but, big but, his replacement from the U.K. is just a quirky and brilliant but much more outgoing and endearingly clumsy. It works. Really well.With the lack of very little original or intelligent offerings here in the U.S. the Brits step up. I am almost embarrassed by the quality or lack there of of our network shows here. It seems as our Hollywood elites enjoy success financially they are more interested in telling us mere mortals how to think and live because it us common knowledge American actors and entertainment industry personnel are the smartest people on the planet. Not!! Sorry but I am so sick of American actors moralizing to the rest of us. Thank you U.K. and BBC for continuing to offer quality entertainment.

    Seasons 1 and 2 are as perfect a television show as you would ever want. Humor, romantic tension that doesn't mean somebody ends up Having Sex at the end of the third episode, brilliant actors, brilliant writing.Then the writers, at the start of season three.... I swear to God you won't believe anyone could be so willfully stupid.It is because seasons one and two were so fantastic that I am screaming to everyone Not.To.Watch.Because.Your.Heart.Will.Be.Crushed.For.No.Good.Reason.
