    From laughter to tears wonderful!

    Rarely do I find a series that can make me laugh and cry and still love it. Great quirky characters but also great story lines. Serious with lighthearted comic relief or is it comedy with a darker side. Either way, I'm hooked.

    I too had a hard time understanding the Scottish accent-being from the Pacific Northwest USA. I watched the first 20 minutes 3 times until I learned to hear it properly. I still hit replay whenever a phrase catches my ear, and look it up online if I really want to know what it means-but so far most is self-explanitory.

    I am a huge Midsomer Murders fan. To compare: this series has more "heart and soul" than Midsomer which glues me to the t.v. but has never brought me to tears. But both rate high on the scale for great characters and script.

    Reminiscent of Northern Exposure

    Hamish McBeth is a small town constable in the Scottish Highlands, charged with imposing the world's view of right and wrong upon a close knit community of personalities. In each episode, McBeth, along with his faithful dog "Wee Jock" and his assistant "TV John", inventively figure out the latest cause of concern within the community and solve it in a manner that best meets the needs of the community. This program highlights Scottish humour and sentimentality in a way that draws in viewers who delight in being entertained by programs that are both lighthearted and nonstressful. Some of the accents and phrases may be indecipherable to those who do not originate in the Scottish Highlands, but the fun of watching this program make the extra effort worthwhile.

    Weird but fun

    Hamish McBeth (Robert Carlyle) is a constable content to stay in his small highland village. The characters in this series are all rather comically dysfunctional. Still, this series is weird but fun. But be warned, if you are a serious M.C. Beaton fan, the only resemblence between the series and her books is the name Hamish McBeth. She even wrote a book called "Death of a Script Writer". Kind of made me wonder. Anyway, I've enjoyed the series and the books.
