Yes, Night Detective does not have all the flash and violence and outrageous plots that are so common and predictable in the US. I feel like it leaves some imagination for me to use. I like the low key approach and very much like how Don Gilet and the other actors are portrayed. I also like that the characters are actually believable. I tire of seeing people portrayed never making a mistake and there is no way a real person can relate to the character because he/she doesn't exist in the real world. Watching the season finally I thought it was very exciting and had twists and again left us wondering if Nicky an Claire are ever going to get hooked up. The addition of Mark Jones was an excellent move and the expanding role of Andrew Dunn and Emma Cleasby has added some fun to the series. Both are very likable characters. I myself am tired of most US police/detective shows. Except for CSI/Miami/Las Vegas. I go out of my way to watch any detective show from the UK and have not been disappointed.
