  • Old dogs.....

    I have enjoyed this show for years now; the actors are all excellent veterans of their craft and it's great to see people of a certain age being used well instead of retired or cast as fogeys.

    Plots deal with things that are often timely and of interest and push all the right buttons. The writing is fun and seems natural and is not aimed at juveniles like US based writing seems to be.

    Love this show!moreless
  • Never mind the plot listen to the music

    I have always liked new tricks and couldn't understand why I couldn't get into the current series then I realised the problem. There is loud music inserted for dramatic effect that is drowning out the dialogue. I mentioned it to my wife and she agreed it was very distracting.

    Please lets get back to the acting and dialogue and keep the music in the background. I speak as a musician and appreciate music including loud music when appropriate but not over dialogue.moreless
  • Best Show Ever.....

    I watch these religiously on PBS in the US. I have the first six seasons on DVD and buy them as they become available. We'll be seeing the season eight episodes for the first time in this country tomorrow night on PBS. I am glad to see they will be having a season nine. I am an anglophile and I LOVE this show.
  • Just great relaxing fun!

    Discovered this show on DVD and am enjoying the heck out of it! Great characters, good acting, good writing. I love British detective shows and this is a great addition to the genre. I'm still in the first season and delighted to see that it has had a long run with so many more shows to look forward to.
  • Good Old Fashioned Fun TV

    If you need a show that shows you why the English can produce all types of Drama's this is a great example. Not serious, but fun in so many ways, the cast all interact so well, you get to enjoy each of them for there own little quirks, watching New Tricks is a pleasure and the title song by Dennis Waterman tops it of. Cant wait for the next season.
