It's interesting to see how their relationship develops. Langton is best described as a British version of "Taggart" who yells all the time. Gradually Travis gains sufficient confidence to 'give as good as she gets' and demands respect. The viwer seldom sees a novice DC integrate into a team, learn her job and become her boss's favourite.
Above Suspicion, the pilot, introduces a series of brutal murders of prostitutes. The case develops from leads from a reporter, a roommate and a retired cop in Spain. Gradually the team zeros in on a famous actor who considers himself 'above suspicion'. there is the usual red herring suspects, but it's facinating as the disjointed pieces of the puzzle start to fit together. while chasing a serial killer it's clear that the arrest results from 'old-fashioned police work' not profiling. no one trys to understand the murderer -- the focus is on means, motive and opportunity. and noone is above suspicion.
The Red Daliah: A woman is found disfigured and tortured, then another .... Trsvis and Langton discover these murders are copycat crimes of the famed 1947 case from los angeles, The Black Dahliah. Do they have to solve the first to stop the second killer? the two cases weave together and come apart.Read more ›
The introduction of the two leads had us howling with laughter. The ubiquitous "meet cute" scene with the female lead floundering in the mud in her high heels and fainting at the sight of a corpse harkened back to 1930's screwball comedies and that would be fine if this series wasn't supposed to be a crime drama. It infantilizes female police officers and makes them seem like nothing more than a way to move the plot along.
Of course there was the expected scene of the female lead dressing provocatively to go undercover and much eyeball popping from Hinds who seems old enough to be her grandfather. At one point in the watching we were making correct predictions of what would happen next and where the dialogue would go. Call me crazy but unless I am watching Shakespeare I would like to be surprised by the dialogue and plot.
This series is not for people who want substance. Morse, Lewis, Luther, Inspector Lynley, Life On Mars, and Taggart deliver much more. If you want romance novel crime and a skewed look at police work where seducing the boss or subordinate is okay then this is your series.
