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!

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.

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.

This is a great show and my only complaint would be that there are not more episodes to watch. It is funny as hell to watch. The male detective is the main character and really makes the shoe. He is bold, opinionated, uneducated but despite everything he solves the case. I do have to say that i was sorry to see the female detective from the first series left the show I thought they had perfect chemistry. But his new partner is very good and they do make a good team.

Tongue-in-cheek detective show, with a lazy, egotistical male officer and a super-keen, intelligent female officer. The stories are bordering on the ridiculous, but so entertaining, that the reality doesn't really matter. Well-written and acted. A true delight. Not quite as good as the first series (someone insisted on the female character showing cleavage), but still good.

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!

This is a relationship driven series with the dry witted guy playing of the sassy gal. Their repartee is great, the sexual tension between them expected but, somehow, it is pulled off differently than American shows. I have great memories of the lead as a particularly ghoulish Mr. Rochester in the 2006 version of "Jane Eyre." He is always worth watching.

My husband and I really enjoyed Vexed Series 1 and we like Series 2. Yes, some of the "critics" were critical of the series and some liked them. We think the actor Toby Stephens is funny and we enjoy the mix-ups and funny situations.
