Recently I asked my parents what they were watching on television and they shared a couple PBS series that they have been recording to their DVR and watching after dinner. I had never heard of them, so I looked online to find out more. One show that they can't get enough of is MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!: INSPECTOR LEWIS. Have you heard about it?
I have been longing for a good series to get lost in and watch from start to finish. It seems like all the new shows that premiered on television this fall have turned out to be duds or the ones I liked are being or have been pulled from the TV lineup. So, when the girls go to bed and I am left to kill an hour to two before I go to bed, I have been searching for something good and of substance to watch.
MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!: INSPECTOR LEWIS looked like a show that I would like -- I love mysteries and who done it type shows. Thankfully the folks at PBS Distribution have recently released the complete series to DVD, so people like who have never seen it can watch it from start to finish. And, those who love the series, including my parents, can pick up the DVD set and watch the series and their favorite episodes all over again.
The MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!: INSPECTOR LEWIS contains 18 DVD discs and 50 hours of the show. I received the DVD set last week and have already gotten through the first 3 discs. I have to say this is an amazing show. Why hadn't I heard of it sooner! Thanks to my parents for raving about it to me and getting me hooked on the show. It will take me a couple months to watch all 18 discs, but I don't mind, as the show is really good, and will keep me during the winter, when it seems like there is nothing on television.
If you are looking for a good mystery series to get lost in, and want to be able to watch the complete series from start to finish at your own pace, why not consider picking up the MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!: INSPECTOR LEWIS DVD set, now available in stores and online. I know that after you watch the first episode of this show you will be hooked, and will wonder like I did, why you haven't heard about it sooner...but, are glad you are in the know now.
