Well thought out plots, great cinematography, fair acting. Three movie length episodes that follow the changes in the life of a detective who seems to have lost his way.

Was ecstatic to find this series at EPL to go along with my Netflix obsession over British crime dramas (Happy Valley, The Fall, Marcella, Sherlock). This one didn't disappoint. I had read a couple of Atkinson's books and was pleased with the screen adaptation. Love the casting too. I wish there were more.

This series is not worth watching! Boring!

I have to agree with coryandtrevor--except the smoking, which, despite the fact I am not a smoker, I think people should have the freedom to smoke if they want. Season two doesn't get even near season one and Isaacs is barely recognizable. I could only watch the first movie and it was THAT bad I didn't feel like watching the rest.

Hard-boiled P.I., Jackson Brodie plying his trade and solving mysteries while getting beat up, all in scenic (and sometimes seedy) Edinburgh, Scotland. Jason Issacs as Brodie finds the right notes, seemingly always unlucky in love, but grade A+ with his clients.

Gotta say this series wasn't nearly as well done as series 1. It appeared several times as if Jason Isaacs was merely mailing it in, contractually obligated to this, following the success of series 1, but wishing he was elsewhere, like competing for the next James Bond, or Marlboro Man. (I haven't seen this much smoking since, "Sons of Anarchy" finished its run!) The stories aren't as rich as series 1, and the disasters that befall Jackson Brodie are too numerous to recount here. And, oh my goodness, (SPOILER ALERT!!) how he treats the woman he professes he loves at the end of series 1 (one of the best scenes ever!!) is stunning. I cannot see that happening EVER. Who would do that to someone?!? To me it made no sense, and just seemed as if everyone had somewhere better to be, and they needed to wrap. Stunning ending. Watch if you must, but this ain't the Jackson Brodie we all fell for in series 1.

I did NOT enjoy series 2. Way darker than series 1.

I enjoyed this second series, but I agree the sound track was extremely annoying, i muted too. This is often the case with British dramas, the soundtrack is intrusive and even makes the dialogue hard to understand - and I'm British! Looking forward to Season 3, maybe Jackson won't smoke so much!

Rated 4/10.

Thank SPL for having this! Watched on PBS years ago & enjoyed - will now watch again. I liked it because of the acting, but mainly because it's based on Kate Atkinson's book.
