Editorial Reviews

"All-round fun" —The Observer (U.K.)
"Cheeky, irreverent" —The Guardian (U.K)

Two bickering cops make one great team

London cop Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens, Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) has been assigned a new partner, and he's not happy about it. Worried that "George" will cramp his freewheeling style and tell him how to do his job, Jack is shocked to meet bright, beautiful DI Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison, MI-5) instead.

The two detectives couldn't be more different. He's a slacker; she's a fast-tracker. He's cocky, she's cool. He's slovenly, sexist, and set in his ways. She's smart, self-reliant, and serious about her career. In spite of themselves, they learn to work together, solving a murder at a car dealership and the gruesome death of a headmaster at an exclusive school, among other cases. Stephens and Raison "fairly crackle" (The Independent, U.K.) with chemistry in this British buddy cop drama with a twist.

Contains coarse language, drug use, and sexual content

If the first season brought you here, you will be delighted to know that Jack is as clueless and self-absorbed as ever (and we are the better for it).

But the second season opener threatens to take that away from us, as Jack seems more tame (though not too tame to turn a murder into a car-shopping opportunity)--though then the season settles down for all the outrageous quips and preposterous situations you watch this for, all in the name of British crime fighting. So be patient. After the slow season opener, you get five follow-on episodes of great fun.

Season two mixes up the show a bit--a new partner (Miranda Raison), who gets her share of screen time, and an occasional foray into situations other than murder. And first episode aside, the season is stronger for her addition. Raison is a more rounded character, and she hold her own on screen.

The rest of the fine ensemble cast is intact. So if you loved the first season, there is twice as much to love here. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Crime Show April 26, 2013
Format:DVD
I have always been a fan of crime television. There is something about a good murder mystery that really gets your adrenaline pumping. When the show in question also features a strong female lead, its even better. DI Georgia Dixon and her partner DI Jack Armstrong provide almost as much humor as they do suspense in this fun show and they bumble through crime scenes and sometimes only solve them thanks to luck being on their side. The two of them couldn't be more different, and yet they somehow make it work. You'll laugh, you'll bite your nails, and you will relate to this two very human characters.With the amazing Vexed Series Two on DVD, you will be getting 365 minutes of back to back action that will leave you at the edge of your seat. Just sit back and enjoy British drama at its best. I had never seen Vexed before getting this DVD set to review, but let me tell you, once I got it I was so enthralled I watched the complete set in only a few days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun June 4, 2013
Format:DVD
Comparisons to Vexed Series 1 are inevitable, and to my mind Series 2 comes out on top.

We started watching Vexed because of Lucy Punch (whom we loved in Doc Martin), but really her character in Vexed seemed kind of world-weary and with issues of her own. On the other hand, Jack and George really offset each other to bring out the humor. George's issues are more about her own sense of perfectionism, which works better for a comedy. She manages to make Jack seem more of a lovable doofus whereas in Series 1 he sometimes seemed more like a jerk. George and Jack get into some very funny situations, and it's really peripheral that they are solving crimes. Toby Stephens and Miranda Raison have great chemistry. I hope they work together again.

Both seasons are recommended, but Series 2 is the maraschino cherry and umbrella on the cocktail.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not the first season ... sigh! June 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first season of Vexed was awesome. The black humour was superb and the acting on target. Season two alas has lost something of that sparkle.

Lucy Punch has gone to be replaced by Miranda and her loss is keenly felt. Lucy's character was as brilliantly flawed in her own way as Toby's Jack. And she was also wonderfully strident in her criticism of Jack. But her replacement although some attempts are made to give her a set of flaws, ends up mostly just being a rather flat foil for her partner Jack's insensitive, sexist, racist (and just about everything else ist), barbs. This wouldn't be such a terrible thing save that the writers have also tamed Jack. He's in danger of losing his flamboyant boyish edginess to become just another detective with a jaundiced world view.

Still there are some good moments and if you skip the first episode it does get better. Also in season two there are six episodes instead of three which is a plus. There are no extras on the discs though save a few screenshots.

Overall it's a reasonable watch and I give it three stars. I'm not sure if I might have given it a little more save that it follows on from the truly wicked first season and my expectations were dashed a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious ! June 20, 2013

Loved the first Season and was hoping they don't stop this show - great weird humor - love it ! Being from Europe I do share the "black humor" and keep my fingers crossed there'll be a third season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying This British Series October 22, 2013
By L. Mote
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed series 1, read the reviews on series two and decided to give it a try although there is a main character replacement. I was not disappointed. As I was waiting for the next season of George Gently to be released, this made a great distraction!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable show October 18, 2013

Not as funny as the first season, it's true, but it's still delightful. The new female character is not as incredibly funny as the previous one but she's very likable.

1.0 out of 5 stars The quality of the dvds is pretty bad
The NEW dvds of Vexed: Series 2 that I've got from Amazon is of poor quality. They blur, hiccup and even skip chapters.

I watched Season One and laughed aloud a lot. It is not a serious show or aspiring to be of a high quality, but I had a good time watching it and it mattered to me. Read more

A fun waste of time with no deep meanings. You can tell that the writers didn't quite know what to do with the characters at the beginning but were getting better toward the end. Read more
