C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C- Episodes: B-
Murder in Suburbia – Series 2 is now on DVD for all fans to
enjoy. Both of the quick mouthed police
detectives Kate and Emma (Caroline Catz and Lisa Faulkner) are back in their
full glory to break the latest cases.
The show is unique and spunky, using the female leads to give the series
a good flow. The six telefilms are just
complicated enough to hold the audience.
With stab wounds, dead brides, balcony dives, and a dog incident that is
just not right Murder in Suburbia
has it all. Now to this reviewer the
series still holds some of the tired old British Television stuffiness that
holds the series from being great. The
fast paced action/dramas of American television may have desensitized
audiences, but judging from racy series like Slings and Arrows and A
State Within, we know the Brits are up to the challenge as well. With griping storylines, Murder in Suburbia has great potential to improve, so keep up the good
in total contains 6 griping episodes.
The episodes included once again have no titles but be assured, each is
unique in its own way.
technical aspects of this DVD set are adequate but not stellar. The picture is presented in an anamorphically
enhanced 1.78 X 1 Widescreen that seems to have been originally shot in
HD. The picture quality can be a bit
soft at times, but the colors are in adequate balance. The sound is presented in a simple Dolby
Digital 2.0 Stereo, which is nice but not stunning. The extras are quite drab only offering
audiences a boring ‘Cast Filmographies’ section.
seems to have a reasonable following, with its ability to capture the attention
of many with the wise cracking antics of two cheeky detectives.
