Prime Suspect painted itself into a corner. Just an opinion., 15 September 2007
Author: ra2353-1 from U.S.A.

I, and my wife, have become 100% addicted to "Prime Suspect". We rent them, 3 at a time, from NetFlix.

This is the best police series I have seen.

But --- The "Lost Child" episode my have been the end of my addiction. Maybe it's because the creator and writer of the series, Lynda La Plante, was not part of the "Lost Child" episode. I don't know.

Now I seem to have lost interest - because in this episode, Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison is doing the exactly same thing as she did in all of the previous episodes, i.e. Running the show. For example, I don't recall any of the other Superintendents (Tennison's immediate boss)in any previous episodes, being so involved in the hour-to-hour, day-to-day, ordering the other D.C.'s about and such about, in nearly every scene.

I loved the series because it was so real. It is not so real (to me) anymore. In real life law enforcement, when a person is promoted to a higher position they do not go to work every day and do the job they have before they got promoted. I was in law enforcement and the Criminal Justice system for over 20 years and never saw this happen.

My wife still is fanatically loyal to the series, but I am going to try and sneak in different Netflix movies every now and then. lol.
