Wonderful
14 April 2015 | by (United States - Pacific time zone) – See all my reviews

Half-way through the DVD set I had to stop and sing the praises of Mr. & Mrs. Murder. It's a big shame this series is one-season show. I'm a big fan of "who dun its" and find myself much more entertained by mysteries and crime dramas produced in countries other than the U.S. This show is a delight, from its two lead characters to its unique murder cases to its location shots of Australia.

Thank goodness I have the DVDs as I've been able to pause them to recover from laughing out loud and not miss any of the story or other lines. In the tradition of The Thin Man movies, we have a devoted Mr. & Mrs. who have a great relationship, so we're not subjected to season after season of that boring formula of "will they or won't they" when you know they always will. It's a relief to be spared this malarkey and, instead, see a couple who already have got it right. The murder cases revolve around unusual methods and atypical victims and suspects, bringing a fresh challenge to the viewer.

One might think a rating of 9 out of 10 is excessive for a lighthearted show, but the humor, mysteries, and stellar crafting of the lead roles makes this fantastic escapist TV. It's such a disappointment that there's only one season of it.
