I bought the box set because I originally bought Season1-3 separately and I found out that season 2 region 2 was missing 4 episodes after owning the american versions. As well I noticed the difference so I bought the box set and they have actually added the 4 missing episodes in the season 1 case but, they are all out of order because when you watch the 4 missing episodes they are all mixed up but nether less I now own all the episodes. Well worth buying if you are a Delany fan like myself and you enjoyed the series. It is the complete seasons 1-3 if you aren't sure.
Overall the show has an interesting mixture of detective work in the field & laboratory investigations to compliment uncovering the truth behind the premature death of the residents of Philadelphia, and battling epidemics & red tape along the way. Being a medical examiner of course, there are a lot of graphic autopsies in the show, akin to CSI, which are recreated very realistically with prosphetics & i'd wager meats from the local deli, which aren't for the squeamish. The cases are a good mixture of difficulties to deduce & try to solve yourself along with the cast. The personal lives of the main characters also offers up some interesting distractions from police work. Mainly Megan's difficult relationships with her daughter, mother & question marks over the death of her father which haunt her. And as a repercussion means she is reluctant to start any romantic relationships.
The acting is pretty good overall, although there were some changes in the cast for series 3. Dana Delany is great as the strong willed medical examiner with an impeccable taste for fashion, who is slow to trust, but follows the evidence with unrelenting conviction, occasionally her passion spills out of control. Which is where her boss, the equally strong willed & ambitious, Kate Murphy (Jeri Ryan-Star Trek: Voyager) has to keep her under control. Megan's love interest with ex-cop now medical investigator Peter Dunlop (Nicholas Bishop - Home & Away) replaced in series 3 by the brilliant Det. Tommy Sullivan (Mark Valley-Human Target) both offered up that great, will they ? won't they ? relationship cliffhanger. The cops, Detective Bud Morris (John Carroll Lynch-Zodiac) & Detective Samantha Baker (Sonja Sohn-The Wire), both replaced in series 3 by Det. Adam Lucas (Elyes Gabel-World War Z), add the investigative ground work, interviews & shaking loose a few tongues of suspects, along with personal life backs stories. Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Curtis Brumfield (Windell Middlebrooks-Scrubs) & forensic fellow Ethan Gross (Geoffrey Arend-500 Days of Summer) both inject the show will a little humor. Ethan's enthusiasm getting the best of him at times, putting his foot in his mouth a lot. And larger than life Curtis, who tries to be strict but has a soft heart really. While Megan's mother, Joan (Joanna Cassidy-Who Framed Roger Rabbit) & daughter Lacey (Mary Mouser-Me Eloise) who takes after her mum, offers up some avenues of distraction, back story to Megan's life & the discovery about her father.
In conclusion, Body Of Proof offers up another routine, yet somewhat different perspective on medical examining & police investigation that has been largely dominated by the CSI franchise for over a decade. Just as the most promising series to date arrived, introducing new & interesting characters, the show was suddenly cancelled, even though it achieved great ratings. Deemed to be aimed at too high an age group for what T.V network ABC were aiming for, a younger demographic pfftt! At least they tied up the story lines in series 3, if obviously rushed to do so. Another worthy series disappears along with many others, here's your chance to catch it in full. Recommended.
Multi-season box sets can prove wonderful buys, for a week or so evenings enhanced by watching a show from its very start and admiring how it evolves. Reviews help to determine what the next purchase will be. Hopes were high here, after all the praise.
Firstly let it be said this is ideal escapist fare for those simply wishing to relax at the end of a long day. Often most of us fall into that category. And why not indeed!
Those hoping for more than this may be disappointed. Fiercest critics may claim that here all is gloss and no substance: from some, posturing a substitute for acting; weak story lines; trite dialogue; blatant spacefilling with superficial romantic subplots and domestic interludes. There is even the tired cliche of a bull-at-the-gate detective whose role is to spend the bulk of most episodes jumping to conclusions and accusing the innocent. Close-ups of mortuary scenes are supposed to be an innovatory feature, but these have been around for years in such series as "Silent Witness" and "Bones" (without long hair being dangled over the corpses being sliced open).
For almost two seasons the show barely evolves, each episode largely a variation of those gone before. Suddenly (Season 2, Ep.14) everything changes: a plague deliberately spread by a terrorist, for once a genuine threat.
Season 3 propels the series into a higher league, as though the creators have taken on board criticisms perhaps made. Certain characters have gone, their replacements with greater depth. Episodes are more unpredictable and challenging. In one of them Megan is even spectacularly wrong. The show has evolved into "sit up and take notice" fare. All the stops are pulled out for Ep.11 which really delivers the goods. (Full marks to all who anticipate the surprises in its final minutes.)
The three seasons comprise 13, 16, 13 episodes. The very last one solves a mystery that has troubled Megan for years and seems a fair enough way to round off the series. Interesting bonuses reveal life behind the scenes. As ever, it amazes how green screen is so often used to such good effect.
It saddens not to be able to share fellow reviewers' enthusiasm on this occasion. Perhaps it is because I have often seen much that is similar but better. There were, though, incidental pleasures along the way. Curtis and Ethan proved an amusing double act. Season 2's Ep.1 in-jokes also did not go unnoticed - here is a murder in "Desperate Housewives" circumstances, Megan feeling obliged to comment. (Dana Delany used to be in that show.)
Three stars, Season 3 having boosted.
