5.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong after six years 9 Sep 2009
By Blackhorse47 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Although New Tricks remains the best tv show of its kind, for the first time it shows signs of running out of steam in a series of two halves. The series starts with a conclusion to series 5's cliff-hanger in which Brian confronts his alcoholism. This excellent episode provides the traditional seemingly effortless mixture of mystery, comedy, believable characters and emotion. Sadly that proves to be the highlight of the first half as the next three episodes are of a lower standard than usual.

There's an X-files style investigation that has some amusing in-jokes, but which doesn't work, a downbeat and confusing investigation into a missing person, and an oddball and contrived story involving an old film. The main problem is the amendment to the format, presumably deliberate, that has worked well for 5 years that results in the characters' private lives being ignored. This has been gradually happening for a while, but now Sandra, Jack and Gerry no longer exist outside office hours and Brian only enjoys comic relief with Esther.

In addition, although it's understandable that in an episodic drama Brian's personal problems would be resolved and never mentioned again after being addressed in episode 1, the show has made story arcs work before. So this is lazy and removes the show's special feel, making it into a generic tv cop show. Adding to the problem is the introduction of serious political sub-plots and social commentary about migrant workers that feels out of place in a light-hearted show.

This is not to say the first half is poor, just that compared to the previous high standard the drop in quality is sad, but before it can become a trend the series picks up massively in the second half.

4.0 out of 5 stars Met expectations 21 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
Husband and I didn't find ourselves laughing out loud as much as we're used to doing while watching New Tricks. We enjoyed the mysteries, and this is still a unique show for those of us viewing it in the States. Perhaps we've come to expect too much, as it's very rare indeed to have a program that is simultaneously mysterious, mildly suspenseful, absorbing, well directed and acted, and then expect it to be laugh-out-loud funny as well. We look forward to ordering Season 7 next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best shows on TV. 1 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
First off i havent got the dvd's but i have watched ever series on tv without fail. But i have to say what a show the main cast work excellent together( the acting background for each actor is excellent which adds too the shows appeal) redmond, waterman, bolam, armstrong if by accident or some genius put these guys and gal together they should be knighted.

honestly this show can hold its own with any american cops show (they have been leading this genre for a while now)and i recommend it highly to anyone this is a great show that shouldnt be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks 14 Feb 2012
By Sky
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As an ex-police officer I can only admire the Tricks that are being employed by this brilliant team of actors. They go 'up', they go 'down' but the results are always there in a big way.

We had our own Tricks in my time, although I think we all had to be a little less adventerous. We wouldn't have got away with some of the Tricks engaged in in this DVD - I only wish!!

I wouldn't have needed to know anything prior to purchase as I had already viewed it on TV.

I have several other DVDs involving New Tricks - are we likely to get any new ones?

5.0 out of 5 stars New Tricks - Series 6 21 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
I enjoyed the series so assume I'd enjoy the DVD's. However, as it was purchased as a gift I cannot really say. I can say that the Amazon.co.uk service was, as usual, brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 19 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
Product received quickly in excellent condition. New Tricks Series 6 every bit as good as the previous, if not better. A real quality drama series - just goes to prove the BBC can still do it!

4.0 out of 5 stars good entertainment 7 Jun 2011
By dutchie
Format:DVD
It's true that it wasn't as funny as the previous series. I have them all, but I nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed the sixth series. It has a good cast and each one is a great actor. We saw less of Brian's wife, she really was only present in the first episode. Shame really as she is wonderful. But it is really admirable that a series after several series is still going strong. I can't wait for the 7th series to come out. Of what I read it is back to it's old form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality maintained 30 Nov 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As you would expect the quality of this BBC TV drama series is maintained in the sixth series.
Alun Armstrong, James Bolam and Denis Waterman as Brian, Jack and Gerry work together on
'unsolved and open cases' under the leadership of Amanda Redman as Detective Superintendent
Sandra Pulman. The grumpy old men consistently play these 'old dogs' with humour and feeling.
They behave badly from time to time but get their man in the end guided by their feisty leader.
