As you may know already, I have a thing for British detectives. Lord Peter [5] and Father Brown [6] have been favorites for years. Sherlock [7], DCS Foyle [8], and now Endeavor Morse [9] have all won my heart. Heavens!

For the last few years the FishFam has become entertained by a number of different BBC series. We’ve been able to watch them all via Amazon Instant Video [10]. At 90 minutes each, they make for a “movie night” even though they were made for television. I have to think of them as movies, really, because there aren’t as many as I would like there to be. We keep running out of episodes.

Additionally, after watching “TV” this week (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD), I have to say that the BBC/Masterpiece Mystery has American television beat. Hands down. There’s no contest. And I’m a Marvel Geek! [11]

FishBoy13 asked this week, after viewing episode 4 of Endeavor, “Why do the English have all the great mysteries?” I have no idea, but I’m inclined to agree.

Are you a mystery buff? Do you agree?
