British mysteries are in every possible way superior to contemporary American crime drama. Average American TV show is usually filled with models who possess, at best, very limited acting ability and charisma of a turnip, that nobody can for a second, relate to. On the other hand, British mysteries are cast by very good actors, who actually look and behave like normal people. And as a cherry on a top, they do not try to dumb everything down, so that every dimwit doesn't feel left out in the end. " Bloodlines" is not the absolute best in this genre. It suffers from little confusion and lack of clarity, but in spite of that, it is still well worth seeing and enjoying.
