Blue Murder – Set Three (Canadian TV/British TV/Acorn Media)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: C     Episodes: B-



There are so many great things to say about the hit series Blue Murder even after several seasons at this point and at this site we never tire of good TV material, we have covered the previous sets already and continue to be satisfied with much of the Acorn releases and this is no exception.


This is my first exposure to this show, but I can quickly say that it has a tendency to grow quickly on any viewer, especially ones who are tired of the same ole’ same ole that we get night after night with U.S. programming.  Instead we get a show that is smart, well-written, well-produced and directed in such a way that the audience never feels cheated, but rather absorbed by each episode.  Continuing right where the last set left off, we are further enthralled into the life of Detective Janice Lewis, but the cases become more interesting as the shows progress and it’s refreshing to see a show never lose energy, but also it doesn’t feel the need to try and re-invent itself in order to gain popularity. 


As with the previous sets the 1.78 X 1 anamorphic transfer (shot in HD) looks impressive even with the presentation coming from standard definition DVD.  Colors look great and at times detail is fine too, but for those who are now accustomed to HD-programming, you will quickly notice the limitations.  The audio is an adequate 2.0 Dolby Digital mix, which for most people will get configured into Pro Logic surrounds and they hold up well for a show of this nature, although the nice treat here is a behind-the-scenes documentary that only adds to the overall value of this set, especially hardcore fans.
