Sure to Delight Mystery Lovers & Anglophiles Alike!

Comments about PBS Father Brown Season One DVD:

The Father Brown series, inspired by G.K. Chesterton's amateur sleuth stories, consistently delivers intriguing narratives that are sure to satisfy mystery lovers and anglophiles alike. Each episode bursts with lush photography of English country sides and art direction that faithfully recreates the post-war period of World War II. The characters are rife with personality thanks to strong writing and performances, and the classic who-done-it setup never grows stale, always allowing one to uncover clues with the priest-detective without feeling duped by the climatic reveal towards the end.

The show's creators politely wink at the audience with Father Brown's frequent run ins with criminal varieties and their schemes, yet the situations keep the suspense moving forward against the backdrop of seemingly quiet parish life, and above all the material remains respectful to the integrity of the main character's first vocation, the priesthood, which is sure to please viewers of faith. Catholic viewers in particular will be satisfied to find their Faith portrayed accurately for the most part and woven into the thematic development of each plot. Not only does the gentle, mild-mannered Father Brown possess a reputable acumen for solving difficult cases, but his motivation for justice is also grounded in his merciful concern for the salvation of souls, including those of the villains. It's great entertainment surprisingly invested with moral and spiritual value made accessible by a warm and compassionate character.

    The scenery is spectacular and very sharp. Father Brown is great and shows how resourceful he is. I like his mild manners and sound advice. What a pleasant surprise this series is and all of the characters. I will keep watching.

    Quaint English Countryside Setting at its Best!

    By Joy, American-born Brit

    Comments about PBS Father Brown Season One DVD:

    "Father Brown" is tea-cozy storytelling with a deep heart. The characters are portrayed perfectly--Father Brown, Mrs. McCarthy, Susie, Lady Felicia, Sid, the Inspector, all set in the perfect English countryside of "Kembleford" in the Cotswolds. Father Brown, true to his calling, is concerned about the perpetrators' souls first and to solving the mystery second. This is perfect comfort fare for me!

    Comments about PBS Father Brown Season One DVD:

    The new Father Brown series stars a character who is warm, engaging and a "true believer". The excellent writing is only surpassed by the great ensemble cast. Can't wait for the complete season 3 to be released.

    Three Cheers for Father Brown

    By GardenMom

    Comments about PBS Father Brown Season One DVD:

    Cast of characters in small British village of the 50s is quaint and homey. The nosey priest of the village gets himself involved much to the chagrin of the local constabulary but always seems to ferret the clues to solve the mystery. Father Brown's local cohorts often help too (or try to anyway) which adds to the joy of the series in that you can often relate to the characters as someone you might know.

    Great cast of actors who mesh well which shows in their relationship of the characters they play.

    We even watch the reruns and enjoy them almost as much as the first time. Looking forward to the next season.
