"FOYLE'S WAR: Sets 1-5" presents British Home Front war-life through poignant topics, compelling suspense, and many mirthful moments. Masterpiece Theatre created a 6-year running (2002-2008) British mystery masterpiece. They outdid themselves. This "War Years" series of 19 feature-length episodes is now available as a set and thus a better price. Wow, 32 hours, of sure-to-please mystery/period drama.

It is a 1940-45 Southern England countryside experience not to be missed. It serves as a home-front view documentary of the English WWII involvement and resulting life-style of the population away from the active war front. This series begins in May, 1940 when all England expects an eminent invasion from Germany. You'll learn lots about the British WW2 home-war preparedness.

On the other hand, FOYLE'S WAR is a series of some of the best 21st century written murder mystery stories ever presented on television--or theater. An interview bonus feature with creator/writer Anthony Horowitz proves that the dual focus--mystery/period drama--was intentional from day one. The combined perfection is "jolly good show." It's hard to believe--but, 19 episodes comprising 32 hours is simply not enough of "Foyle's War." You'll want to move from #1 through to #19 without stopping to sleep. It's that good.

Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) is a cop who'd rather be on the war front than investigating crime in Hastings, England. His cases, almost always murder, are quite involved, and never fail to end with a surprise--or two. I'll stick my neck out--Foyle's as good as Poirot. Foyle recruits help from an ex-soldier who lost a leg. Milner (Anthony Howell) manages to do much of Foyle's "leg-work" on an artificial limb.

Foyle is assigned a female driver, "Sam" for Samantha Stewart.

I love clever dialog, thoughtful stories, and believable characters. This series is one of the finest I've seen. The acting is ,well, like the British,understated,but I love it.No "over-the-top" scenes, just a great,entertaining diversion.

This series went from 10/10 to 11/10. I cannot really fathom what just happened, it should be impossible to exceed the level of brilliance from season 2 (or series 2 for those UK folks). But the show I didn't think could be improved upon just raised the bar.

It seems there is a bit more nuanced cinematography, which helps with the show tremendously. It's subtle, but it seems like there is more experience behind staging and shooting as well as the angles and close ups. Perhaps the budget increased with this season and they got some more talent?

Acting has also gone from great to magnificent. Micheal Kitchen is so dry yet believable in his modern (1940s) Sherlock Holmes style. I love it when he pauses with his 'ummmmm', you know when he does that he's not buying what the other person is saying! The main cast has also improved from Honeysuckle (yes, that's her name) to Anthony to Julian. They are all terrific. No longer is Foyle's son annoying, but he's suddenly human and the viewer starts to have compassion for him.

The series is set during WW2, and while the special effects shots of the bombings and such aren't much to look at, the crew has paid particular attention to every other detail. This is history. Even if you aren't too terribly interested in Foyle's cases, the effects of the war on the people in Hastings and beyond are believable and well portrayed with good accuracy. I find myself fact checking quite often and the crew gets it right every time.

Foyle is like a WW2 Sherlock Holmes, and when he solves cases, the episode is usually over. We often see him present some circumstantial evidence to the culprit and they confess. But it works. By that revelation, we are done with our viewing.

I enjoy the Foyle's War Series immensely The twists and turns and how the trio figure it all out. I also enjoy the window into life in England during WW II in the country rather than in the larger cities like London.

I love shows that are period pieces. The fact that this series is in the 1940's and in England fascinated me. I was surprised with the knowledge that a lot of the British were angry with the Americans for taking their time entering the war and some really didn't want us there? This series has a lot of twists and turns and is very interesting to watch.

Want to see what the English really thought of the 'Yanks'? Good mysteries and interesting history. My wife and I are hooked.
