To make the bullets track across the ground as depicted, the machine gun would need to raise its elevation as it fired. The view of the gun showed it staying level as it was firing. See more »

Tried But Finally Gave Up
8 June 2010 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Longtime fan of Midsomer - I found this episode to be unwatchable. Forced plot, overacting, and uninteresting. The show could be written out. Not sure because in the US we can't get the new shows very quickly. I rely on Netflix to provide most of my British TV viewing. The sets are still nice, the countryside is beautiful to view, but that does not replace tightly written mysteries.

The show is still popular and new episodes are being produced, which is great. However I do hope to see better plots and murders that occur sooner in the story. Murders introduced slowly does not engage Barnaby soon enough. He needs to be brought into the show early. He's very easy to watch.
