Great fun! The familiar "fish out of water" trope gets a who dunnit flavor in a modern (if somewhat fairy tale-ish) fashion. Just enjoy!

I love the BBC radio series with Penelope Keith and Malcolm Sinclair. This show isn't a patch on that. It's different than the books as well, so we've got many varieties of Aggie now. Unfortunately, this is the least interesting of all the versions. A second series is not in the works. No surprise, I'm afraid.

Silly fun. Have no great expectations and you will not be disappointed! I found it relaxing.

I was quite disappointed with these episodes as I am a diehard Agatha Raisin fan. I didn't like the character rearrangements and "new" characters (Charles Fraith, the Bloxbys, Doris Simpson) though I could see it might make better "TV" to appeal to a younger audience. I got used to Agatha but she is supposed to be 50 not 40. If you haven't read the books it would be a fun series.

Funny, enjoyable. Bridget Jones meets Midsomer Murders description is good caption of this series. Looking forward to Season 2.

Loved the books but the DVD series can not compare. Did not capture the Agatha essence.

Fun, fast moving British mystery series with a quirky stylish young "detective". Entertaining but not very mysterious or deep.
I'm not one for mysteries usually because they always involve a murder of some kind and it seems rather flip to treat murder and death so lightheartedly.
