Quotes

[Scribbs has been to a clothing consultant]
Scribbs: They look at your hair and your skin tone, and decide what colour your clothes should be.
Ash: So what did they say about you?
Scribbs: That I was an "autumn" - that I look best wearing subdued tones.
Ash: Subdued?
Scribbs: Tones. Apparently bright colours don't suit me. The mistake I made was dressing as a "summer". Which is why I've been attracting the wrong kind of men.
Ash: So you're saying the right kind of man's attracted to a woman in a mushroom-brown outfit?
Scribbs: D'you think I look...

Cagney & Lacey meet the Desperate Housewives.
3 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are always crimes afoot on Wisteria Lane. Suppose you sent a fashionable version of Cagney & Lacey to investigate them. This is the basic effect of 'Murder in Suburbia'.

Just like 'Desperate Housewives', it manages to combine a good story with a generous helping of humor. The crimes are suitably bizarre, and the interplay between Ash and Scribbs as the two single police officers is a lot of fun.

This is not like most American mysteries which are heavy on procedures and tend to be very somber. This one is strong on character and very light hearted.

If you enjoy 'Midsomer Murders' you will probably enjoy this, and if ABC doesn't option the US rights to this show as a companion piece for 'Desperate Housewives', they're nuts.
