New Zealanders call this wry police procedural "our own Midsomer Murders." Neill Rea (Scarfies) is enigmatic DSS Mike Shepherd, Fern Sutherland (The Almighty Johnsons) his by-the-book partner, DC Kristin Sims, in a show with eccentric characters, picturesque scenery, local color, and a sense of humor. In Series 2, they contend with a potential serial killer, egocentric thespians, territorial fishermen, and the mysterious death of Shepherd's favorite singer. 4 feature-length mysteries, 4 DVD or 2 Blu-ray discs, SDH.
