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|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|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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a natural extension of the Morse legacy September 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Inspector Lewis series continues with 4 new episodes that are identical to the U.K. releases. Beginning with Series Three PBS has been shipping the U.K. versions (for Region 1 US/Canada DVD players) without trimming 10 minutes off the story line and, most importantly, without the sneering PBS host irritating everyone before the opening credits. These episodes continue the slightly melancholy but beautifully produced police procedural first viewed almost twenty five years ago with the "Inspector Morse" mysteries.

Lewis, once Morse's lackey D.S., is now a Detective Inspector and has his own sergeant, James Hathaway. Inspector Lewis, while more mature and now in charge, is pretty much the same character he played in "Morse". Hathaway on the other hand is very much a younger, Cambridge educated version of what we might imagine Morse was like early in his career. Like Morse, Hathaway is brilliant but flawed, so the critical dynamic of character remains the same in both series. And, like in "Inspector Morse", the university plays a pivotal role just as important as the lead characters themselves. While the Morse mysteries were elementarily more Gothic than "Inspector Lewis", the conflict of old religion intruding into the modern world is still an occasional thematic treatment. As of yet we haven't been treated to story lines from the Greek classics, Italian opera or Wagnerian excess, but give it time. They did do a nice murder mystery involving the Romantic poets in seasons past, so Morse's legacy of the erudite policeman lives on.

Initially I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of Lewis' character development and kept wishing him to become more of a prototypical lead rather than just a member of the ensemble.
