Interesting Adventures of an Insurance Investigator
29 August 2015 | by (California, U.S.) – See all my reviews

This show is a pleasant surprise, at least the first season. After reading the exceedingly negative first review here I wasn't expecting much. The first three episodes, which comprise season 1, are quite interesting. The casts are first rate, with familiar faces from other shows. The acting is good. Kevin Whately comes off well and is more three-dimensional than his character in "Lewis." The show is a combination of intriguing investigative mystery with some domestic drama and romantic entanglements. Admittedly, Whately is not really believable as a babe-magnet.

A noticeable drop-off in quality in the second season - some of the story lines are silly. Try season 1 and approach season 2 with caution.
