Episode Summary

EDIT

James Pendrick, owner of the Pendrick Building, proudly shows off his extensive art collection to a group of admirers. The highlight of the tour is a magnificent Rembrandt that Pendrick purchased on a recent trip to France. The constabulary is hired to guard the painting's return to the Pendrick mansion and is daringly stolen from the elevator, leaving a dead security guard in the car.

  • This one had a familiar ring to it.

    This episode reminded me very much of the movie "The Thomas Crown Affair", but the good movie; the original, with Faye Dunaway and Steve McQueen.



    Except that in this particular installment of Murdoch Mysteries, the bored, aristocratic thief dabbles in art instead of cash, and while he is still busy trying to impress a woman, the TV version of said woman is his equally bored, and anything but aristocratic wife.



    I also think she is in on this scheme with her hubby. She's just better at hiding it. Or is she? Murdoch is no dummy, and he has rattled the Pendricks with his insights...something I don't think the Pendricks expected...that someone would be smart enough to catch on.



    I suspect this knowledge will only temporarily slow them however, and they will see Murdoch as the real challenge in the future...but then, I've had a glimpse of the season's episode list. ;o}



    Bring it on, I say, and may the Pendricks survive into the just announced 4th season, to give Murdoch his own challenge!moreless

    Murdoch meets his Moriarty? perhaps.. something that has been lacking in the series, and that is an arch villain (without saying who and what happens ! and as with Murdoch stories.. who knows if this character is the criminal or not, and is perhaps totally innocent). A Rembrandt is stolen from a wealthy couple under the eyes of Murdoch and George. How? How? The episode was packed with twists and turns, with yet more characters who are obviously dubious: an art dealer, a Painter into modern art (who is really ahead of the art world) who protests way too much about the Rembrandt (hasn't he watched an episode of Columbo or Murder She Wrote?). Julie excels with her sense of humour, or exasperation over Murdoch's interpretation of the modern painting as a 'landscape'. George has a more prominent role this time around, especially good being the scene concerning the means of death and his ever inventive variants. Detective Murdoch is excellent as ever: especially loved the scene with Pendrick's wife beside the pool and the iced water (was waiting for the drink to boil over). Murdoch is also revealed to be an art expert ,though he seems to be expert in nearly everything so I am not totally surprised.



    The mix of science, art, crime, humour, low-lifes .. makes Murdoch a superb series. This is yet another excellent episode.moreless
