I’m trying out a new mopey British detective series, and if they main character is surprised by the twist I’ve seen coming for 40 minutes, I’m deleting it from my queue. In ep one he said he goes where the evidence leads without jumping to conclusions. If the twist comes and he does not say “I knew this was a possibility from the start,” I’m out.

some shows just don't work out. Though I'll admit I'm quirky on what works for me and what doesn't. You don't mention the series but if like cozy mysteries at all you might try Rosemary & Thyme or not. I don't know if that is the kind of mystery you like or not.

I'm a fan of morose detectives, especially if they're set in the past. There's more willingness to show the bad side of police force if they can talk about how it was in the old days.

The show is George Gently, and not only did it not do the thing I didn't want it to do, it did something better.

Good and the morose detectives can be fun as well. Some of them I really like and some of them not so much. Glad they didn't mess up the episode and instead did something clever that works.
