5.0 out of 5 stars Let's hope lucky 13 sees MM back to its usual form! July 20, 2009
By Shopper
Verified Purchase
For those new to this British masterpiece, Midsomer Murders is a long running "who done it", based on the novels of Caroline Graham, starring John Nettles (of the Bergerac fame) as the unflappable Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby. The series is set in the fictional Misomer County, which comprises of many cosy, rural villages, where wealthy and poor alike seem to do each other in at an average rate of three to four bodies per episode. The series has a worldwide following, not in the least due to the creative and macabre ways in which the MM victims are typically dispatched. I give the series as a whole a five star rating, though set 12 was a bit dissapointing (four stars) in that it lacked some of its trademark British humour which in the past acted as a buffer between the viewer and the grim reality of the bloody murders... Let's hope Set 13 sees MM back to its best form!

Set 13 contains the following episodes:

ep 52: Dance With the Dead; orig air date: Nov 2006
ep 53: The Animal Within; orig air date: Jan 2007
ep 54: King's Crystal; orig air date: Jan 2007
ep 55: The Axeman Cometh; orig air date: Feb 2007

SPOILER ALERT!!!: In The Axeman Cometh we meet Simon, Cully's intended. Her wedding is in ep 60 (which I guess will be in set 15). END OF SPOILER ALERT!!!

If you own any MM sets from Region 2, you may already own at least some of the above episodes, as the Region 1 and 2 sets are NOT synchronised. Better check... I read somewhere there were fewer MM episodes released in the US in order to keep the price of each set more affordable. If that was indeed the case, then it is a great shame... I would like to see those missing episodes released at some point in the US as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still As Great A Series As When It Started In 1997 August 21, 2009
This is more a message to the fans of Midsomer Murders in The USA who get tired of having to wait almost two years after the show is broadcast to see it on DVD.

First the big review.....These episodes are as wonderful as all the previous shows. The ability of the writers to keep up the quality is nothing short of amazing. What a track record. Whoa!

Now the boring message...these episodes were released on dvd in the UK in September 2008. The entire TEN EPISODES of that season were released as "The Sixth Collection" You can buy it from Amazon UK for about $70 including shipping. This USA release has only four of those episodes issued one year later at about $36.

The one catch here is the UK releases are on the region 2 PAL format which will not play on a lot of the USA region 1 dvd players. BUT you can buy a dvd player that will play the region 2 PAL format right here on Amazon. I did.

Series Note....John Nettles will be retiring at the end of 2010 with one final series of eight episodes.With the way Acorn chops up these programs into little three and four episode packages for the USA it will be 2012 before we get to see any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Series April 13, 2011
By Susan
Verified Purchase
How is it the British make such wonderfully engaging shows? We watch very few series produced here on television. In fact, only two. I saw the Midsomer series listed on Amazon and based on the synopsis, took a chance. We love them! The actors are marvelous, the casting brilliant. The scripts/stories are all different and well written and the scenery is beautiful. The mythical town with its wonderful shops and houses, the uniquely individual inhabitants are something we just don't see in productions here. The acting in even the smallest role is outstanding.
John Nettles, the lead, settled into character with the very first show and is absolutely brilliant as the stern detective with a strong sense of justice, a good sense of humor. His love and affection for his family lights up his eyes during even the most difficult case. It is nice to see.
We have now bought many of the Midsomer series and will by them all. Can't recommend this series highly enough.

I have been watching this series for years and have every eposode.The acting is far superior to any series on US TV. I like that the actors look like real peop;e and NOT Hollywood clones. The scenery is charming. I can't waitfor the next series to come out in Feb. If you like this you'll like All Creatures Great and Small also.I highly recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars does anyone else have this problem October 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
Does anyone else have this problem? I think I have seen most of the Midsomer episdoes on TV and from episodes I get in our local library. While I would be most eager to buy any episodes I haven't seen, I can't tell from the Amazon listings which episodes are contained in each set. I am therefore reluctant to buy sets without knowing if those sets contain episodes I haven't seen, as it would be a waste of my money to buy sets containing episodes I've already seen. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so how do you deal with it in deciding what sets to order. Is there a reason a summary of the episodes can't be lsited in the amazon entries for each set? (sometime I can get an idea of what episodes are contained in the set from the reviews, but not always or even usually). Thanks for any help.
