Repeating the Same Formula
6 June 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Seems like every other detective series out there starts out with a troubled detective w/personal issues. The cheaper series then follow the formula of a mostly panning camera of talking heads (lots of talking). In this series we get the usual cheap found dead body in the beginning followed by lots of incidental "just everyday talking"; dining, wine, light romance w/no seen sex. Usual detective team conflicts & off beat personalities to relieve boredom. This series adds, probably an Italian cultural thing, extra model attractive females; extra dining & wine; a few long camera shots of a bay; lots of scenes of bland building facades. But, scenes of the usual Catholic inspired emphasis on excessively ornate & furnished interiors.

Plots differ for each agonizingly long episode (90+ min) until the brief confession (usually least expected) at the very end. Really poor forensics, and highly improbable sleuthing. Series film quality seemed '70s like w/audio that was poor (almost dubbed like), and video just as bad.

Suggest watching their E.U. neighbor's series "Spiral" or most Swedish/Danish.
