Im obsessed with MidSomer Murders

[ Edited ]

I get the older ones on Directv the ovation channel.  Although John Nettles ( Inspector Barnaby) is not in the newer ones I hope the ovation channel will also show the newer ones at some point.

 

One of the reasons I like Midsomer so much is the casts are made up of "real" people, meaning they have older, not "Hollywood" beautiful people,  not lots of makeup or the latest fashions and everyone is not thin, young and beautiful.  I also love their quirky personalities.

I love all three! If you like those, you might also enjoy Murdoch Mysteries (on Netflix, Acorn TV, or shown on Ovation. under the name The Artful Detective). It's a Canadian series that takes place in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Agatha Raison is another fun Acorn show. Murder in Surburbia is also very good.

 

If you do like to see beautiful people and the most amazing costumes ever, I also highly recommend Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. It's an Australian series set in the early 1900s (Miss Fisher is described as a 'flapper' in the novels) and can be found on Acorn TV.

 

Edited: Ovation has stopped running Murdoch Mysteries under the title The Artful Detective and now just calls it Murdock Mysteries like everyone else. Much less confusing. Ovation also airs the Frankie Drake Mysteries, another Canadian series set around the 1920s and starting a woman detective and her friends.

I have to agree.  The Midsomer Murders characters are very good, as you say, like real people with their quirks and eccentricities.

Re: Im obsessed with MidSomer Murders

We enjoy Midsummer Murders as well.  This new season has a few new twists too.

Other PBS favorites are Father Brown, Death in Paradise, Endeavor, Inspector Morse, and so far, Frankie Drake Mysteries.  I do miss Miss Fischer and Dr Blake.  These shows are so well done.  The homes and scenery are so amazing.

     When I am home...well...every day these days...I watch Ovation in the morning. 

     Monday through Friday from 6 am to 1 pm (mountain time) the channel shows mysteries all morning.  

             Monday --  A Place Called Home

             Tuesday -   Murdoch Mystereis

             Wednesday - Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

             Thursday -   Midsomer Murders

             Friday -      Librarians

       Of all, my favorite is Midsomer Mysteries.  Love the characters and the storylines.  Scenery and acting is so good!!

Rarely watch the Librarians...just could not get into the stories!!
