Because of my multiple complaints about my cable service, Time Warner gave me a DVR for free, and I have been enjoying recording PBS shows that I would never see otherwise. One of the programs that my husband and I really enjoy is “The Artful Detective”, also known as “Murdoch”. It is about a detective set in Toronto in 1890 and boasts beautiful sets and clever scripts too, as well as a handsome leading man. My grandchildren (who don’t have Time Warner) also watch it on Netflix. So, it appeals to all ages and sexes. I love a program where they speak good English and solve the crime using their wits.
We’ve got “Murdoch” on Netflix, too, sometimes on streaming and sometimes DVD. Are you seeing the Canadian Broadcast Corp series, starring Yannick Bisson, or the American version (same plots, different cast)?
My oldest daughter (23) refers to the Canadian Murdoch was “my future ex-fiancé.” We love his brown eyes and perfect teeth.
