Summary of The Brokenwood Mysteries Seasons 1-4 DVD
Writing in the New Zealand Herald, critic Colin Hogg panned the series,The Brokenwood Mysteries Seasons 1-4 DVD stating that it was "a local version aiming at that grand TV detective tradition" but that its "Dialogue is cliched, the acting aches and the locations are boring."International television website "The Medium is Not Enough" was also generally negative in its review, describing the series as "genteel, New Zealand drama designed to appeal to perhaps an older demographic that likes comfortable murder-mysteries and to New Zealanders eager to watch anything that’s actually set in New Zealand and stars New Zealanders."Christine Tidball, writing for entertainment website Cheese on Toast was kinder, rating the series "charming,The Brokenwood Mysteries Seasons 1-4 without being cloying, very well-written (thanks to Tim Balme) and funny, but not too funny.It’s also engaging, full of twists and will keep you guessing right till the end."As a local who has many friends and interests, he often finds himself involved in the murder investigations.Critical response to the series has been mixed, with many reviewers impressed by the plots but lamenting the occasionally hokey dialogue. The two-hour length (broadcast length with ads) of episodes has also been mentioned by some as too long for such a series.
