An entertaining thoughtful set of stories which do not rely upon sound bytes or visual effects to keep ones attention, just plain intelligent stuff.
Keeps one entertained and awake after a hards days work so yes, I rate this series and give Inspector frost a big thumbs up.
He is brave,hates paperwork,offers a touch of comedy centered around food.
This item contains 3 episodes-which may be the last ones,but one (Endangered Species?).
The first two episodes were enjoyable,but lacked a certain suspense.The last (Near
Death Experience)was up to the best in the Frost series.As usual,the acting,
photography and music were excellent. Sound is sometimes a little "dicy" which may
be due to a combination of British production values and their accent. I gave this
4 stars instead of the usual 5,for 3 reasons: fewer espisodes (3 not 4),less
suspense (1st 2 episodes),and most importantly-no "extras"-in particular a
series wrapup commentary from David Jason,directors,etc. (Perhaps such might
appear when Endangered Species does.
David Jason, as Jack Frost is as usual simply fantastic. Character George Toolan, as Frost's sidekick is injured and sidelined in the one disc episode of Season 12. Jack while still solving a murder mystery involving the religiously devout shows a softer side with his intense concern for George. It's a really intense episode and so well done. I loved it. In fact all of season 11 and 12 is great!
Indeed there are only three episodes on this 2 disc set; however, I did NOT feel cheated. The quality far outweighs the quantity!
Frost is one of the few long-running series that has avoided these problems. Frost has stayed the same -- brilliant, intuitive detective, bit of a maverick, disastrous personal life. The plots are always good, just enough mystery to keep you guessing without the implausible "explain everything" last scenes.
Frost's relationship with Chief Constable Mullet was a real challenge that every detective series with a maverick detective (going back to Rockford Files) has to deal with: how can this guy who has solved dozens of spectacular crimes remain on the "voice of authority's" s**** list?Read more ›
2).Compare with others: I enjoy English police whodunit's, all of them. Poirot, Marple, Morse, Lewis, Maigret, Foyle. Most of them share the features I described above. I've known this series since it was first broadcast in England, where I used to live.
3) Attributes: described in my first paragraph.

We have watched the entire 1 thru 15 series at least
3 times over the years, and still enjoy them as much
today as we did on day one.
This detective really grows on you. He is sarcastic, humorous, dedicated, cynical, and gets his man....most of the time but don't expect it to be another ho hum who done it. Read morePublished on March 14, 2014 by Kathy Chow
