Lightweight , fun series. Poor camera work
5 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the light hearted action of the first series. Hannah Spearritt certainly is easy on the eyes, especially when caught running around in her undies.

But by the beginning of series 3 I felt like I was seeing the same thing rehashed and recycled every week. So I quit watching.

I decided to go back later and start series 4. Again, nothing deep, but more fun than reality TV. However, I don't know if I will watch any more than the 1st episode because of the horrible camera work. Did they go out looking for a cameraman with palsy? Whenever there is any action, of which there is plenty since that is the meat of the series, the camera bounces around enough to make watching unpleasant. Apparently this is someone's idea of informing the viewer that something exciting is happening. If I watch a car careening down the street I don't bob my head vigorously to make the sight more exciting. It really aggravates me that an otherwise mild to moderately entertaining 45 minutes becomes instead annoying because some director thinks it is cool bounce and jerk the camera.

If that is not a problem for you, and you expect that the plot and action will be pretty formula you'll find this passably entertaining.

I would have been willing to give it a 5 1/2, but amateur camera work reduces it to a 4.
