A Touch Of Frost – Season 14 (MPI DVD)
C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Telefilms: C+
Jason is hanging in there as Chief Inspector Frost as A Touch Of Frost unbelievably enters its fourteenth season. Though we have looked at few of them, we have
seen a few along the way and you can find out more at the link to our coverage
of the debut season at this link:
the show is no better or worse than before in general, I found Jason better
than the material this time around. The
three telefilms featured on the two DVDs this time are:
Mind Games – Is a return to child abduction,
with a case picked up 20 years after a young 14-year-old girl disappears. The show is starting to repeat itself a bit
here and redoing ideas just because they are going widescreen is an issue.
Dead End – Frost has to work with someone
on the force who caused him trouble in the past. Can they get along or will a murderer go
In The Public Interest – Frost versus a rich man who is
up to no good and is wreckless with his ownership of media.
point, the show has gone widescreen and is here in anamorphically enhanced 1.78
X 1 presentations. You still get some muted
colors, but it looks like we get new motion blur since this is likely a 1080i
production at best. The sound remains
Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo with limited surround information, but it is a little
clearer, yet some digital harshness can be heard. There are no extras.
