NOT UP TO SNUFF,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jack Taylor: Collection One [DVD] (DVD)
I do quite like Iian Glen and he was no disappointment in this series. Hard-drinking, brooding & rough, with a gentle soul. But a good actor does not a successful series make. Murder mysteries are one of my favorites but this was a rather mundane, slow paced series. I'm always in search of more Morse, Wallendar, Lewis, Frost, Piroit, Lynley, Miss Marple, etc., etc., but I'm afraid this series does not meet my expectations in content. While interesting, it's lacking in substance. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a bad series just - not up to snuff for me - I do so miss series that take us around to the villages, towns and outlands not just big city crime, as in this series. I'm at odds as to whether I would recommend purchase of this series - maybe better to rent it. Although I can't say I'm sorry I bought it.
