5.0 out of 5 stars Lounge Lizard solves mysteries, 7 Oct. 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lounge Lizard Banacek is a self employed expert in finding items which have mysteriously disappeared in return for a large finder's fee from the insurance company. Worth watching to cringe at the awful 70s fashions and chauvinistic "girls throwing themselves at him - James Bond style". The format of each episode is pretty routine with an insurance detective determined to solve the mystery before Banacek can but, of course, Banacek always wins. Much is made of him being Polish for some reason, with a repertoire of supposed old Polish proverbs.
Despite the very dated style many of the stories are quite intriguing and that is the appeal of this "Mystery Movie" series. To me it is quite reminiscent of Jonathan Creek in that way though it is disappearances rather than murders that are to be solved. As in Jonathan Creek he is going to outsmart someone else who thinks they can solve it and is appallingly dressed with collars designed for elephants rather than a duffle coat.
If you've read this review you may wonder why I have given it 5 stars. It is simply than in its way it is great fun (despite the cringe) and the plots are often well thought out. The first season is probably slightly better but not much to choose between them except by the second series some aspects may seem a bit repetitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not dated at all, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Banacek: Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I give careful thought to what I buy and sometimes can be disappointed but this time all the items were terrific. Banacek has not dated at all (except for the clunky phones)
