RETIRED COPS SOLVE COLD CASES IN THIS HIT BRITISH SERIES

In this wildly popular crime series, aging cops and traditional sleuthing trump high-tech gadgets and modern criminology. James Bolam (The Beiderbecke Affair), Alun Armstrong (Garrow’s Law), and Dennis Waterman (The Sweeney) star as three detectives pulled out of retirement to unravel cases that stumped the Metropolitan Police. Their beautiful boss, Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast), keeps them on track and mostly out of trouble as they follow their hunches and bend the rules.

Strong writing, ample humor, and a splendid cast have made this one of the most-watched shows on British television. This time around, the team has its hands full with unsolved murders, an 18-year-old abduction, and a 30-year-old robbery that threatens the team’s very existence. Guest stars include Rupert Graves (Death at a Funeral), Paul Rhys (Chaplin), Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey), and Siân Phillips (I, Claudius).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sleuthing but the personal touch is gone. June 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love New Tricks. I practically do a count down on my calendar waiting for the next season's DVD to come out, so of course I began watching it within hours of Season 7's arrival from Amazon last weekend. I haven't seen the last two episodes yet. But as much as I enjoy the great acting and the camaraderie between the four main characters, the key ingredient for me is missing this time around. We still get to see Brian's home life with Esther but nothing much out of the office for the other three. No family problems for Jerry nor any cooking, and evidently Jack isn't discussing his cases with Mary any more. There is a small smackerel of something for Sandra, which satisfies an itch from Season 6, but we never see her at home. And I can't reconcile the rooms in Brian's house with what they looked like last season. They've had the decorators in and the rooms look larger than they did before.

Which leaves me feeling as if old and dear friends have suddenly stopped inviting me into their homes. Still solving cases brilliantly, still having fun in the office -- but I miss the intimacy.

Every season has had one episode that I watch over and over. My all-time favorite is the one when Esther cuts her hand and Jerry cooks that gourmet dinner for her. In fact any time Jerry heads into a kitchen makes me happy. I hope Season 8 will go back to those informal moments. I haven't found an episode that I want to watch from start to finish twice in a row in Season 7. New Tricks: Season 7.

Format:DVD
Unsolved murders, psychic sleuth, past abduction, arson, & bank robbery cold by 3 decades tough for the team ego. Buckets of guest stars including a bevy of beauties. 10 episodes, filled with one-liners. Humorous expressions roll faster than clues in this fast-paced but retirement age police team.
..........Cast: DS Pullman (Amanda Redman-`Little Dorrit') guides 3 ex-cops on unsolved crime & open cases (UCOS). This team's personalities & relationships make this award-winning fun. Pullman tough, realistically slightly overweight, but yet sexy. Brian (Alun Armstrong-`Garrows Law') is an old alcoholic, tech nerd with a photographic memory. Jack (James Bolam-`Beiderbecke Tapes') a widower of a murdered spouse, & Gerry (Dennis Waterman-`Sweeney') aging playboy. DAC Strickland (Anthony Calf-`Upstairs Downstairs') is their often antagonistic boss. And we must mention Brian's wife Esther (Susan Jameson-`The Queen' and voice for Catherine Cookson audios). Expect first name familiarity in New Tricks, like in a family series. They are a cop family. Episodes always have a difficult past crime, plus personal issues of the UCOS team. You will laugh through the sleuthing efforts. You'll see many guest stars.

SDH SUBTITLES for almost 10 hrs. UCOS-Unsolved Crime & Open Case Squad
............BONUS: Behind-the-scenes featurette * Bloopers
Episodes in DVD order; 1: Dark Chocolate
A cake maker rape. Chocolate factory head (Neil Stuke -Reggie Perrin) is suspect. That's not dark chocolate on those bodies, its sweetless sweat. More dark secrets. Can Gerry go smokeless?

2: Good Morning Lemmings
Graffiti claiming "I killed Flak" sprays London. Dad Flak by Chris Barnes (Horatio Hornblower) It's a 4-year-old dead case. Why now? Former taggers checked.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looked Tired; Felt Redundant June 18, 2012
Format:DVD
Something (well, a lot of things) is missing from what I thought was the peak of interesting storytelling and spontaneous natural acting between seasons three and five.
First season was a little rough especially the not-so-imaginative case scripts with unnaturally quick final minutes' resolutions/confessions and actors still becoming comfortable with each other. But, each season improved with good repartee, wit and humorous exchanges amongst our castoff crime squad; even the stories improved in intelligent sleuthing, topical social backdrops and unusual crimes but this season seemed like we have fallen way back to rote non-imaginative scripts; rushed predictable endings and most importantly I found barely 3 chuckles worth of witty exchange in all ten episodes. The actors looked tired and almost disinterested as if they were just going through routine acting motions. Perhaps it's a result of a change in some of the directors and writers these past couple of years or perhaps the writers and directors have lost that creative, "spontaneity" drive?
The cinematography/editing is rather poorly performed such as constant face switching; zooming; poor framing of scenes.
The show needs to add some energetic fresh face to liven things up. And, the actors could use a wilderness retreat or something similar to get fit and regain a mental zest and focus. Even the guest actors seem to be type cast and scripted the same way year after year and episode after episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars These actors are teriffic! October 13, 2013

Like the story lines, like British humor, recommend it to those that are tired of the "Halloween TV" that has taken over American television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good season. April 14, 2014
Format:DVD
Fans of NEW TRICKS in the U.K. recently learned that series co-star James Bolam (Jack Halford) has announced he is moving on from the show. The reason? “It’s becoming stale,” he said. Viewers beg to differ. Season Eight has seen the highest number of viewers in the U.K., an achievement which so impressed the BBC (producers of the program) that they have commissioned a ninth and tenth season of the show, to be broadcast in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Mr. Bolam is certainly entitled to his opinion, but perhaps there is a reason he was cast as Jack Halford, the most irascible of the lead foursome! In the past, Bolam has expressed in interviews his disdain for people wanting to know about his private life. Also, he has refused to sign release forms allowing for some of his previous projects to be re-run. In so doing, he denies his fellow performers any opportunity for continued recognition of their work and affecting their bottom line by denying them residual payments for the re-runs. Sounds a tad cantankerous to me.

Be this as it may, NEW TRICKS remains a fun show. Season Seven (Eight will follow soon over here, no doubt) may not be the most compelling series to date, with its focus at times more on catching the bad guy rather than the mix of quirky personalities, but it’s still a great ride and Amanda Redman just gets sexier and stronger. She’s arguably the most interesting, attractive female lead in the “cop show” genre.

The Bolam defection is old news now, though we here in North America have yet to see his last season, number Eight. When Acorn Media releases it we can all say our goodbyes to Jack Halford, not NEW TRICKS. The brilliant Denis Lawson (Ewan McGregor’s uncle, if that interests you) has already come on board to replace Bolam.
