You need to try this series from the beginning, the later episodes are not as good.

Midsomer Sets are always expensive, kind of a pain if you are an American fan of the show since the I do not believe any network runs the show in the US since A&E stopped many years ago.

Series sold here do not even go to Tom Barnaby's last show or the new DCI Barnaby taking over the show (The Sword Of Guillaume in this set is his first appearance) , but the UK releases do not have Blu available for the shows (which are broadcast in HD). Same thing they do for inspector Lewis and Poirot, Broadcast in HD but never offer a blu release of their own home grown shows. Yet In American where I assume the market is much smaller we get them on blu.

Midsomer is an acquired taste, it is a blatant whodunit set in small village across the idealistic British country side called Midsomer. Kind of like Hot Fuzz only the characters take it more serious even though the show is Tongue-in-cheek a lot of the time.

The series started out life as adaptations of a mystery series, loosely based and the first few novels by Caroline Graham. Since the first few shows based on the books the series grew in to its own little weird niche.
