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.

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

2.0 out of 5 stars No longer unique October 1, 2013
By CK
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I discovered New Tricks this summer and ordered seasons 1 thru 5 followed by season 6 and now season 7. While viewing these I was also watching the most recent season on the local public television station (season 9?)
What drew me to this program was it's development of the relationships between the 4 main characters. The were not only shown in their workplace settings but also their "home" settings. Loved the humor amid the drama of reopening new cases. Just like real life it has it's highs and lows and each character has their own baggage brought into the mix.
Unfortunately, by season seven there was no family related scenes for Gerry or even Jack (speaking to his deceased wife). The only personal related scenes were for Amanda's half brother and some with Esther. Without those personal insights into their respective personal lives this series becomes like any other cop show.
I didn't have an issue with a change in character when Jack retired although I loved his laid back character. The real problem is the program lost it's original theme..."senior" detectives" doing an unenviable job in a high tech world while they remained (initially) low tech (like the picture board which no longer exists). New Tricks holds no charm for me since it's lost it's focus and depersonalized it's characters. For these reasons I couldn't give this 5 star program (initially) anything more then two stars.
Highly unlikely to purchase any more seasons.
