It's fun & quirky
6 January 2016 | by daggersineyesSee all my reviews

Good lord I'm glad I didn't read that one horrible review before giving this show a chance. I really can't work out why that person has such a bee in their bonnet (using polite language there LOL) over what is really a very nicely put together series that has many great qualities. It certainly does not deserve the pasting that person gave it, or that ridiculously low rating. Their "review" feels like there's some grudge or sour grapes going on that are nothing to do with the quality of the show.

Anyway, no it's not a riveting intense drama with horrific forensic details, or sordid tales of police corruption and what not. It's a light crime series with an emphasis on small town characters & unique kiwi lifestyle. I'd liken it more to that show about the cop in Scotland (cant remember the name off hand) or possibly a little like Heartbeat rather than comparing it to Midsommer murders or - heaven forbid!! the appalling Murder She wrote!

It's not going to win any drama awards and it has a few issues with some of the minor actors and occasionally awkward scripting, but this is fun and interesting and worth the price of admission (ie free) even if only for the talents of Pana Hema Taylor.
