Confusing, too many fish in the barrel, needs some good acting
9 April 2010 | by clotblasterSee all my reviews

Very disappointing since I have been waiting patiently for this series to come to the US, but, well, this episode, the clubbable woman, makes little sense and is mushed together without any care for logic, character development, plot, atmosphere and the outrageous characterizations of the two main characters. Rushed at the end, fatuous in the beginning and flaky in the middle, this film has little to offer a viewer who has a right to expect something to work in 90 minutes of story telling. There is, however, nothing that works. Too little of the main characters and flaky presentation of the actual mystery is most disturbing. Daziel seems to be vulgar and anti-elitist, but wears top-drawer clothes and knows a lot about every facet of life. The subplot is a snippet at the end. And Ellie is moderately repulsive, but Pascoe is the worst--pretty boy to the max. P.C at work when homoerotic implications are rampant in this truly awful show.
