Jonathan Creek Season Two (BBC DVD)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Episodes: C+



After watching Jonathan Creek Season Two in DVD, it is apparent that we can officially say we have a comedy/mystery cycle in British TV that can produce interesting shows, but is not necessarily great or a good thing long term for either genre. However, Alan Davies and Caroline Quentin are entertaining as the leads and its hit status makes sense for the most part.


This new DVD set has six hour-long slotted shows which make for a while season, though in the old days, that would have been a very low output. Still, the shows are consistent and you could do worse. I just thought the comedy wore thin due to lack of wit after a certain point.


The case says the image is anamorphically enhanced widescreen, but it is really letterboxed 1.66 X 1 and is not bad, though detail, depth and even color issues at times. Otherwise, it is watchable enough. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is nice and clean for a recent recording, though it has no surrounds. There are no extras either.
