Someone said that all human interests can be described as:
to tickle the nerves.
And kinokuni a viewer fully meet this classification...
From my point of view, the detective series — is of love yourself. We like to feel smarter, more discerning of the characters, like when we know how to surprise, like when we cheated together with the world to the second before the entire world stacking puzzle game... of the Detective genre on 100% cinematic. And I am a typical viewer, like the detective series. Crammed with scientific and technical progress (between us, usually pseudo-technical), classic, ironic, fantastic and styled...
That's about one looks question.
"Cut the novels of Maureen Jennings" (in quotes, because I did not read) the series tells the story of unusual days unusual detective of the Toronto police end HH century.
Stumbled upon opinion
the creation of this time and Opera
that set of scenes is standard, as lunch: Jack the Ripper, the evil scientist, priest is a pervert, amnesia and multiple personality disorder, a murder in a closed room, separated twins, a high-ranking pedophiles and sodomites, the substitution of infants frozen, corpses, Boxing fights, fugitives, drama behind the scenes intrigue, dog fights, Palace mysteries, mediums, history with disguises, private clubs, Masonic Lodge, Chinatown, circus tent, werewolves (and teeth in uniform), unlawful medical operations, Bank robberies, a stash of gold, the theft of paintings by Rembrandt, spies, conspiracies and even terrorists (well, where them)
all "deductive" solution is sucked out of fingers,
what go with easily "invented" all the modern techniques of criminology...
And it is true.
But for the indigenous inhabitants of 1\6 of the land where the two main criminal plot — drunk on home soil (or both together), detective series — it's almost smart food, a really like this vintage as "Poirot", "Agatha Christie" or here "Murdock" — this does graceful aestheticism...
You can, of course, to give preference to action. Of course, to investigate the case better under the hail of bullets, in bed with the enemy when the entire family held in hostage... But how it's great to dream that people, progressive outpacing their environment, can try out their guesses and someone's scientific achievements in the most authentic way — solving crimes...
And generally, when even the villains are without exception gentlemen and allies Arthur Conan Doyle, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Harry Houdini and other — the prototype of the lie detector, rifles with telescopic sights, night vision device and etc., preparation of composite sketch of the puzzles, a novel by the Telegraph (almost wrote the Internet), not speaking of fingerprints, chemical analysis of tissues, the beginning of trace analysis, ballistics and toxicology not they look alien and far-fetched ears. The authors were able to resist the excessive attempts of plausibility, managed not to slip into a Frank banter, leaving the subtle irony: a tasting of absinthe ("green fairy does not appear..."), anaphylactic shock due to "hypersensitivity to food" and excellent sedative ("heroin — wonderful medicine, just dumped her feet")...
I would also like to note that the canadian serialproduction manages to make very thin, devoid of vulgarity and trash products from naivety and purity which we experienced the fans and hardened cynics, get genuine pleasure... for Example, in a modern series the viewer will forgive the heroes for so long prelude to the novel? And not because decorations require not to tighten the plot. Just as it is obvious that in a hurry they are absolutely not need of in this period of doubt and hidden courtship for the characters more emotion and passion than in any torrid affair to the modern model.
And I definitely like the canadian galaxy serial actors
I'm not familiar with other works by Yannick Bisson, but this actor's work I admire.
In short, if you have time and mood — not wish acquaintance with detective William Murdoch.
