Mr. and Mrs. Murder (2013)

3 Kernels

Now streaming on Acorn Television or via Amazon Prime is Mr. and Mrs. Murder. Season 1 consists of thirteen episodes. It focuses on a married couple who own an industrial cleaning business. They are often called to the scene of the crime to clean up the mess of blood and whatever remains. Since they arrive after the removal of the body and the forensic team doing their thing, you’re not exposed too long to the gore.

Charles and Nicola Buchanan quickly turn into amateur sleuths, solving the murders. They are on good terms with Detective Vinetti, and feed him the clues as they come along. The Detective, however, obviously has a thing for Mrs. Buchanan. Even though she knows it, she and her husband joke about privately.

The series is lighthearted in nature, with a few good zinger jokes that incited a laugh outloud response from me on a few occassions. This series is produced by Bravado Productions in Australia, but contains the same quirky type investigations. If you’ve watched Agatha Raisin and enjoyed it, you’ll probably like this series as well.

Mysteries are the usual for who-done-it, sprinkled with humor here and there. The relationship between the husband and wife is pretty adorable, and a niece tags along for their adventures. Since the show apparently died after one season, it’s a good thing it has thirteen episodes to entertain.

You might check this one out if you’re looking for a little pulp fiction.

Death In Paradise – Season 4

Kris Marshall is back in season four of BBC’s Death in Paradise now streaming on Netflix. As soon as I see that NEW EPISODES notice, I’m back to binge watching. I’ve always liked Kris Marshall ever since I first witness him play the dork of a son, Nick Harper, on My Family.

If you haven’t tuned in to the first three seasons, read my former review HERE. Then check out season four.

Woo-hoo! More British television.
