life.The stories are excellent-suspenseful,involving real life
people.The crime is serious,but not quite so "grimy" as in
the excellent Prime Suspect series.In each case,Frost has a
new partner,who is an integral part of the story.He is heroic
(winning the George Cross), has empathy for many of the
victims,and is lucky. The acting,photography,and introductory
music are excellent.Each of the 4 stories is 100 minutes in
length.I will be buying the next series due in July.Enjoy
Frost: Used to watch Frost on the Tele. Being able to get all of the seasons through Amazon is dynamite. DCI Frost manages to keep about 5 balls in the air every episode, so you better pay attention at the start. Good acting, good plots, good camera work. Perhaps some of the "cops and robbers" producers in the U.S. should take a lesson.... cut the fluff and the computer generated geewhiz stuff and get back to real life - like Frost. However, I just cannot stand Hornrim Harry... never have, never will.
A great deal of that is due to the brilliant acting of David Jason. His portrayal of Detective Inspector Jack Frost is extraordinarily well done. Unlike a lot of other detectives in other series, Frost comes across as "real," that if I ever was the victim of a crime in England, I would not be surprised if someone like him would investigate the crime (or at least I'd hope that someone like him was handling my case). Frost is such a great character...gruff, sarcastic, shrewd but very compassionate and human. I have the complete series in my DVD collection, and it's entertainment that I will be watching again and again in the years to come.
Of this particular season, the stand-out is "A Stranger in the House." A serial rapist has been attacking women in their homes. Frost has been unable to catch him. Superintendent Mullet is breathing down his neck to catch this shadowy figure. It's an enormously compelling story, and I think it brings home to anyone how devastating being raped is to a woman. Some of the best scenes in the episode are the ones where Frost interacts with the victims, treating them with kindness and empathy.
So I would highly, highly recommend this DVD set and the series as a whole. You won't be disappointed; it's just great drama.
It is a very good British crime drama
one needs to research different times for what is available for sale. I did this and have gotten the full 14 complete sets
always a few laugh's with Jack Frost (David Jason) and his boss!
But Jack gets the crime solved by the end of the movie
No cursing and he does't smoke but eats, this tends to make the movies better for us.
chfancier"fancier of good movies"
So we recently bought Series 2 & 3.
This series just gets better with age. Jack Frost is endearing. He has parts of Morse and Foyle in him.
This mystery is up to Series 14. We plan to get all of them.
