Got hooked on this series while stationed in England. Come Tuesday evening at 8PM, everything stopped to watch Lovejoy on BBC. Ian MacShane is brilliant as Lovejoy. He is cool, suave, debonair and just down right hunky. Lovejoy is a series that one can sit down and enjoy with the entire family. Was over the moon when amazon.com started offering the series. A bit pricey but well worth the money. Since Lovejoy, Ian has also cut quite a swath here in the U.S. with various and sundry series (such as Deadwood) as well as appearing in numerous movies. Too bad they cancelled his "Kings" before it even had a chance. Oh well, long live Lovejoy!
