5.0 out of 5 stars Full Inspector Lewis Episodes August 21, 2011
The episodes on this DVD set are great (as always).

My only complaint is that the price currently shown ($31.49) is substantially higher than the price offered on another site. I have no doubt that Amazon will rectify this problem. I love Amazon, but you should check this issue before you place your order.

Although the product description of this DVD set claims that the running time is only 60 minutes, another web site notes that it is 360 minutes. This is probably a typo. I mention this because it means that the episodes provided by PBS on this DVD set are the full episodes shown in the UK. PBS cuts 10 minutes from the US TV broadcast in order to fit the episode into the Masterpiece time slot, which I don't mind so long as the full episodes are offered on the DVD. Unfortunately, PBS has a history of only putting the abridged version of episodes on the DVDs that PBS produces (as opposed to ACORN or BBC). For example, while the full Inspector Lewis episodes are offered on Series 3 and 4, only the abridged versions are offered on the earlier series. I believe that the change to selling the full episodes on the DVDs happened because a number of people complained about the abridged DVDs in reviews like this one. So, be careful about the running time when you buy PBS Masterpiece produced DVDs. Wikipedia states:

"PBS owns the exclusive rights to both broadcast Lewis and to manufacture DVDs for North America. This is in contrast to Inspector Morse, which was commissioned by British company Carlton Television (originally Central Independent Television) and which included all original broadcast footage, even if that footage was edited on North American TV stations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure September 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
More of what we love about Robbie Lewis, D.S. Hathaway and Laura Hobson, with no annoying introduction from Masterpiece Mystery or PBS! The quality of the recording, both video and audio, is excellent. The plots are intriguing. And most of all, the relationships between the trio of main characters develop over the course of the episodes, giving ever more insight into the complexities of their personalities. There is a new ease in the Lewis-Hathaway team, which only enhances the enjoyment of being in Oxford with Inspector Lewis! While these episodes can stand alone, watch the earlier series first in order to appreciate the awkward, slow, and sometimes bittersweet road to a working relationship between Lewis and Hathaway, as well as the awakening of romantic feelings between Robbie and Laura. There are so many layers to these episodes (the beautiful visuals of Oxford, the music, the characters and plot) that they can be watched again and again with no loss of enjoyment! Getting this set early has one down-side, i.e., a longer wait for Inspector Lewis 5 (Season 6)!

Had to add this postscript...I just finished the last episode, which I was trying to save...the last exchange between Hathaway and Lewis is priceless! Great place to leave us until the next series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series! August 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
When we ordered the first "Lewis" we were very skeptical since it was a spinoff of the incredibly well-done "Morse" series. But to our delight they are just as compelling and beautiful. We have recently rewatched all episodes through series 3 in anticipation of the 4th series being released. Highly recommend--you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better than Morse - Astounding but True January 19, 2012
Long time fans of the Inspector Morse series know Inspector Morse as a classic larger than life anti-social detective in the mold of Sherlock Holmes, Nero Wolfe and Inspector Poirot. Their sidekicks are like the plain friend of a beautiful girl, there to make the great man look even greater by comparison. Lewis was Morse's junior officer, mirror and sidekick for many years both in print and on screen. Few if any readers or viewers ever imagined Lewis leading a detecting team or Kevin Whateley carrying a television show. Thank goodness that the creators at ITV did imagine Lewis and Whateley leading the pack because it turns out that he and Lewis are more entertaining than Morse was.

Inspector Lewis is, as he puts it in one of the episodes, a non-commissioned officer in terms of the police force. That is, he has worked his way up the chain of command through doggedness rather than brilliance and he is the backbone and lifeblood of any service organization. He is smart but not brilliant, hard-wroking rather than given to the brilliant deduction, treats his subordinates with affection and respect, all things that would make him a good colleague, but a bore to watch. Not true, not true. Watching Lewis advance in the service and lead a detecting team and solve crimes is a joy and it is a joy mixed with a realism that the classic genius detectives could never match.

Sgt. James is Lewis's subordinate and he shines as the junior member of the team. The mysteries are well conceived, written and plotted and the solutions and the way Lewis and James arrive at them is natural and believable. I loved Morse and always felt sorry for Lewis. I am so glad that Lewis has gotten this chance to shine as a detective and a character. Highest recommendation to lovers of procedurals, English mysteries and BBC/ITV mysteries. Really wonderful.

These three make the episodes interesting while they solve the mystery whatever and whoever clouds the process until the truth wins out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Story good, quality so-so
Voices vary significantly in tonal quality so if TV is up enough to hear Lewis, it's too loud for some of the other characters. Also, this is the second time we tried to view it. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Lewis is a fine successor to Morse
I chose this program because British TV is just fascinating to this American. The acting is far superior to the that on American TV and the characters are 3 dimensional. Read more

This is a series I can watch, wait six months, then watch again. The three main characters are very different from each other and always interesting. Read more
