    Anyone watching Midsomer Murders on Netflix?

    I love series like this. I watch one episode every night. No guts or gore just plain good mystery.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I liked that show, but I haven't seen it in a while. I always told my husband that with that small a town and that many murders, it was a wonder they still had any population at all!

    Me, too! Just watched an episode of "Vera". Luckily Portland, Or has a PBS station and carries them all!

    I've wondered the same thing myself. And I find the theme music rather interesting.

    'Midsomer' is supposed to be a county rather than just the one town - each episode tends to be set in a different town in the area.

    Still a very high murder rate though!!

    I'll have to catch Midsomer Murders.

    I taped Masterpiece Mystery: Grandchester and have watched two. They seem good. Has anyone watched them?

    I have such trouble trying to keep up with what's on PBS because instead of the online TVGuide saying "Grandchester" it says "Masterpiece Mystery." So I have to start watching the show to see which show it is or read the description and hope I recognize the character's names. Anyone else have the same problem as me? So . . . how will I know where to find Midsomer Murders?

    Perhaps you could google your local PBS station and see if they have an online schedule. Good luck!

    Midsomer Murders is available on Netflix.

    I like UK murder mysteries in print and on screen.

    Inspector Morse, Endeavor, Inspector Lewis, Inspector Lynley Mysteries.


    I would love to see Anne Perry's novels, with the Pitt or Monk series made into a TV series. I appreciate that she weaves social policies into each book many relating to woman's issues, from owning property to the right to make decisions about her own body.

    And if anyone hears about Maeve Binchy's beautiful stories being made into a TV series I would love to know. When she died I lost a favorite story teller. (I know her family lost much more).
    I also thoroughly enjoy Murdock Mysteries - The Artful Detective in the US.

    It's a theremin if I remember correctly--it often shows up in old horror movie music.

    LOL. I feel the same way about all the murders in Father Brown's town. At least MM spreads out to surrounding small towns.

    We love the show, we watch it every once in a while, but when we do, we watch it show after show. I agree that it seems there are way too many murders for such a small area.

    Watched all 90 some episodes...we loved them! The British actors are marvelous! Anyone watching Doc Martin? We watched all of the series as well and loved them. The last episode is being filmed now but will probably be a year before (or IF) it appears on Netflix though.

    I love Midsomer Murders and try to never miss an episode. Our PBS station carries the episodes.

    I love Midsomer Murders! Not only is it decent tv, but it's fun to see all those English 'cottages' and gardens. I'm almost done with the 95 episodes on Netflix and will really miss it when I'm done.

    Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is my absolute favorite on Netflix, but there are only a couple of seasons to watch right now. Great writing and costumes, and Phryne is a very progressive woman in the 1920s.

    I love this show, but I have to keep myself from binge watching until the wee hours!

    I love Midsomer, Doc Martin and the others, but the one I'm hooked on is Last of the Summer Wine. It's a show you have to watch from the very beginning and PBS runs it and I think I have seen it through about 3 times. I am getting all the dvd's and the kids got me the special region player you have to have for some of the dvds.

    I like Midsomer Murders too. I have seen them all and I go back and watch episodes every now and then. I find them strangely relaxing...
