TV Show Review - The Brokenwood Mysteries

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Today, I have my "TV Critic" hat on, here to review another program for you.  Or is that "programme"?

We just finished watching the most recent season of The Brokenwood Mysteries, a murder-mystery show set in New Zealand.  I really like this show - my favorite character might just be Dr. Gina Kadinsky, the pathologist from Vladivostok, Russia. She is played by Romanian actress Cristina Serban Ionda. She adds a lot of dry humor to the show.

In one of the episodes of Season 6, however, hands down, my favorite character was Willie.

"I'll bet Willie has this thing solved already!"

Willie is played by Logan.  Did I mention he's a Corgi? Scroll down a bit in this article for a photo of him with the show's star Neill Rea.  He gave a great performance!

The storylines hold my interest, the scenery is beautiful, and the music is really interesting - New Zealand country and alternative.

"I don't normally like country music, but I like this for some odd reason ..."

I give The Brokenwood Mysteries four paws up.  We watch via Acorn TV, in case you want to check it out!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

    Logan is quite handsome...I can see how your would enjoy watching him.
    Our good friends were owned by Yogi the Corgi for many years. They are quite endearing and what a little adorable waddle they have.
    Yogi was quite the athlete too he loved herding a soccer ball across the grass with his nose.

  3. That sounds like a good show if it includes a dog in the cast.

  4. Thanks for sharing Maggie. We recently just got Acorn TV and we are going to check this show out. When we see Willie we will definitely think of you. Have a wonderful time and let us know about any other good shows that you may find.

  5. Thanks for the review! Any show with a dog in it is automatically better.

  6. Our mom needs to get that TV site, she loves a good mystery! And a mystery with a dog? You sold us right there!
