Like most of the reviewers. I enjoy this series.
The bizarre, nit picking of some, make for laughable commentary.
Yes, a few of the plots are far-fetched but overall well done, with good characters.

This is a well made, light 'cozy mystery' type series. If that's not for you, fine. Move on.

Actors with no depth or belief, strictly soap-opera with second grade writing and frozen facial expressions meant to change a scene. 'Strong man' turns over shell of a car and an empty plastic barrel. Their hair looked like they all wash in alcohol mixed with grease for several months. Their clothes! So flower-childish and sloppy. The story takes place with mostly head-shots in two tents, a trailer and a room in the police dept. Script is like listening to a two year old describing how he stopped a train robbery. No worthiness here.

3.5* nice light show to watch. Wish there was more to it then just figuring out who did it! Like the detectives personal life.

I love the quirky characters and quick humour of this. The plots are quite intricate and enjoyable, and I appreciate that the murders takes place without a grisly focus on spattered brain matter and gore. I thoroughly enjoyed the way this series married comedy and suspense. The characters are thoroughly likeable and begin to feel like old friends.

It's watchable, but not as good as previous series! The quality of the stories, the way they are told, perhaps, not as good as before! The actors did well, though!

Better than the previous season, this quirky whodunit series continues to be surprised by its own success, according to the main actors in Special Features. If you're the type that likes to figure out the culprit, try this series. Another bonus of this show: the interactions between the characters!

It was great to have Jared return and break out a bottle of wine.
These are the quirkiest, most fun characters in murder mysteries.

This is really 4 movies that can pretty much stand alone. They aren't bad, but they are nothing like the quirky fun Brokenwood of season one.
