5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently Entertaining November 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Based on a set of only seven novels by Caroline Graham (beginning with The Killings at Badger's Drift), Midsomer Murders is a long-running and very popular series that debuted in the U.K. in 1997. The series features the likable Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and is set in the fictional English county of Midsomer which consists of several villages each of which seems to rival Cabot Cove, Maine for their improbably high murder rates.

Agatha Christie, the world's most successful mystery writer, considered plot to be of utmost importance when crafting her stories. Graham, on the other hand, has said that she prefers to start out with interesting characters and allow the plot to form around them. And it is certainly the characters that are the centerpiece of Midsomer Murders. Unusual, odd and memorable are all words that could be used to describe the show's colorful collection of villagers - including the murderers, the victims and the bystanders, very few of whom could be described as "innocent".

Part police procedural, part quirky cozy, part traditional whodunit, Midsomer Murders should appeal to a variety of murder mystery fans. Even after seeing nearly 70 episodes, I find the show remains dependably entertaining with strong writing, intricate plots and uniformly first-rate acting. Episodes exist more or less independent of one another and need not be viewed in broadcast order. However, because of Barnaby's changing Detective Sergeants over the years, viewers might wish to do so.

More of the same fantastic Midsomer Murders style, for now, while we have leads like John Nettles (DCI Barnaby), Jason Hughes (assistant copper), Jane Wymark (wife Joyce), and Laura Howard as daughter, Cully. That alone guarantees 5 stars for performers, add the writing for plots to the multiple murders (a signature must) and don't forget the divine looks at country life in England. These "sets" are the real thing, great locations scouted for picture perfection. Sure adds to the complex murder investigations and the suspense that is sustained throughout each episode. Add a bit of good family life of the cops and some family humor at times, and you have above-and-beyond the best British Mystery Murder Crime series ever produced. OK, that's an opinion, but one shared by millions on both sides of the Atlantic.

No foul language issues, but plenty of good family murder mystery--the murder is almost never seen, just the moments up to the kill, and then of course the body. How many ways can a person be murdered? The shows seem to be released to DVD faster than ever, considering showing schedules in multiple countries. A tip of the had to Acorn Media. Also SUBTITLES. Not rated by good for teens and older.

The episodes each about 100 min.: Inspired by Caroline Graham novels.
The Dogleg Murders, aired March 2009
Whiteoak golf course in Worthy is found Crisp's Folly, hole 13 and a blind dogleg. While searching for a ball, a rude golfer is ironed to death, his own club. Suspicious death! As in the Barnaby and Midsomer tradition, the murders accumulate faster than pars. And a club member tells Barnaby about gambling on the greens. Duh, it's golf for Pete's sake. What a delicious golf course to see, outstanding scenic tour, as is all of Midsomer Murder episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL A GREAT SERIES, THESE EPISODES ARE WONDERFUL January 23, 2011
This series is still so good and these episodes are as amazing as all that have come before.

On February 2, 2011 the final episode with John Nettles will be shown in the UK. Episode #81 called "Fit for Murder". It will be released a week later on dvd in the UK.

This USA series release goes up to episode number 70. You can buy all the remaing 11 episodes right now from Amazon UK.

For those of you who will wait another year for the the US release
of the final John Nettles episodes..ugh in the meantime you might want to check out some other wonderful mystery series such as Inspector Lynley, Murdoch Mysteries and Waking The Dead.

It will be interesting to see how Midsomer Murders changes when Neil Dudgeon becomes the new Inspector Barnaby in March.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a treat... March 5, 2011
By myz
I have long been a fan or Barnaby and his sidekick, be that Troy, Scott, or Jones, and this newest series absolutely does not disappoint! The cases are interesting, and kept me guessing till the end. I am going to miss Barnaby once he retires! The mysteries are never too creepy, and the rural scenery is so charming, it's like every village is its own character. i highly recommend this season to fans of the show, or anyone who enjoys British mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars midsomer murders galore March 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What television series has maintained quality as consistantly as Midsomer Murders? There might be disagreement as to which episodes are the best but who cares? The best series have characters you care about and Midsomer has that. Then they add interesting characters to react to. Set 17 continues all the fine traditions.
Fortunately when the final episodes reach the U.S. there will be enough to go back to Badger's Drift and start over. I am of the age where I can't remember the murderers that far back so I will have fun all over again.
