Scott & Bailey is a wonderful crime series for real grown ups. Wish our USA TV was nearly as good.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scott & Bailey - Series 1-2 [DVD]  (DVD)
It seems that the writers, actors, directors, etc. in the UK turn out wonderful, interesting series made for grown ups (that is, viewers over 30). It seems our USA crime shows are aimed at youth (note the runway model types who, unbelievably, are supposed to be in positions of experience and responsibility, such as police chiefs, pathologists, high powered lawyers, etc.). Hurrah for "Scott & Bailey" who are real women with some real experience under their belts. They dress like professional women should - not in the skin tight, low cut outfits our American heroines seem to favor. They even have flaws - like "real people" do.
The supporting actors - male and female - also seem "real" as opposed to the slick, hip, young guys and gals that people US shows sprinkle around the set. We now watch almost no American TV. Instead, we keep looking through the Amazon.com.uk web site and find fascinating series to order. We have quite a collection and will re-watch them sometime in the future.
We do love our country, but we can't abide what Hollywood is putting out for American TV. Thank goodness for our friends on the
other side of "the pond"! Keep it up and send us more delightfully grownup series.

Good review. Scott and Bailey are great. Only just discovered them myself (though I'm a Brit) by coming to Australia where my cousin loves them and made me watch. Now going home to buy the first series and watch in entirety. Have you tried Granchester? That's a good one.
