You'll be hooked after one episode!, 30 Jan 2012
These days it's almost impossible to find ANYTHING worth watching where all the characters aren't young, perky, surgically enhanced and damn near perfect. What's the point in watching?! The story isn't unbeleivable because you just don't buy the 22 year old detective in Chanel suits and Jimmy Choo shoes.
New Tricks restored my faith. But, to be honest, my faith never waivered in British television. They go for character and substance...not fluff. I saw one episode of New Tricks and was hooked. An instant fan. So much so I ordered ever single season and have watched them more than once. The characters are fully developed, yet continue to be human and grow. They're not the typical Hollywood beautiful...they're real people. Believeable, flawed, human! The story lines are fantastic and keep you guessing. I can't wait for Season 9, 10, 11, 12.....I hope this show runs forever. Anyone who's tired of today's tv.....watch New Tricks. You'll be surprised, amazed and a fan.
