City Homicide Somersaulting Dogs S02E02 (Channel 7 AUS)

It’s the second season premiere of the Australian police prodedural drama City Homicide. I gave this series a go when it started. I was pleasantly surprised. The Australian feel for this drama is really nice. Much like British shows, City Homicide is quite different from American ones.

That means that not a lot of Americans will be watching the show. In fact, I’m willing to bet that not a lot of people outside of Australia watch it. Nevertheless, it’s a really nice drama. The cases are surprising and the insider politics that the crew has to deal with are also very interesting.

The acting is good as well all around, apart for a few minor glitches along the way in female guest stars. What really sets City Homicide apart is the overall quality of the show. The cinematography is really top notch. Superb shots of Melbourne and beautiful post processing make this show a must for people enjoying visual eye candy of the architectural type.

One thing that I do like is that there aren’t fifty CSI techs running around finding evidence. The detectives themselves have to do the work. This sort of thing comes from the popularity of the CSI TV shows. I think of The Sweeney when I think of City Homicide, and that’s a great thing. I recommend this show without reservations.

This episode is also a bit disturbing. There was an apparent suicide at the school where Detective Superintendent Bernice Waverly’s son goes to. Things aren’t as they appear when the team starts to dig around. All isn’t happy at this prep school.

City Homicide is a nitty gritty police drama. I recommend City Homicide.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
