Well, I finished all of Midsomer Murders. I miss it. Granted that the last couple of seasons weren't as good, but it still had the basic ingredients of setting and premise. I could have done without the emphasis on John Barnaby's home life. I could also have done without the sparring and attempts at UST between the various sidekicks and the female MEs.
Is it me, or did the mysteries become ever more convoluted as the show went on? A bit darker as well, perhaps? There were a few in the last two seasons where the story was so grim that it jarred me when the end theme music came on (too lighthearted.)
Still, I wish there were more episodes. If anyone has a suggestion for a series with this particular vibe - rural or small-town England setting, not too gritty or depressing, some humor - I'd love to hear it. Series I've already watched include Morse, Lewis, Miss Marple and Poirot, Death in Paradise, Agatha Raisin. I've dipped into Grantchester and Father Brown but am not really grabbed by them.
