A Love/Hate Relationship with the Protagonist!
25 August 2018 | by rickbuggyphotographySee all my reviews

There has to be more episodic television programs about Detective Muncie of Police Scotland! The serious crimes and their investigative solutions by this man warrant much more television or movie exposure. If he was a Londoner or a New Yorker, everyone would know about this Detective and his accomplishments!
