For a few months now I've been watching the british detective series "Midsomer Murders" It is set in a fictional southern English county of Midsomer that has to have the highest murder rate in the country. In American detective/police dramas there are one or two murders that need to be solved, but in each Midsomer episode 2-5 people can end up dead! It's far fetched for small village life but the show is truly entertaining. The lead detective is play by Shakespearean actor John Nettles and he is really great. The writing, as in most british shows, is very smart and funny.
For those of you still enjoying free streaming on Netflix before the prices go up, the entire series is currently streaming in "Watch Instantly."
