An enjoyable mystery show

I read this article in the paper today when the title caught my eye.

We’ve been watching a fair number of “Midsomer Murders” on DVD from Netflix recently, and we really enjoy them. We sort of space them out, because too much at once is definitely cloying, but they are worth checking out.

This is a rare case where we like the show better than the books. We read a few of the books, and though the plots are basically the same, the characters are treated much more harshly. The books have a rather bitter edge, and one of the main characters (Troy) is rendered as self-centered and obnoxious. In the movies he’s quite likable, if somewhat unaware. Some may prefer the more cynical treatment of the books, but both Flo and I prefer the shows.
