Based on the popular and critically acclaimed novels by Kate Atkinson, this mini-series was shot on location in Edinburgh and was quickly followed by a second season.

I don't recall Jackson running around with his shirt off in the books but who's complaining.

Thanks inamac. From this review (above):
Case Histories will live or die on Isaacs’ immensely likeable performance.
No pressure there, then, eh?

Oh oh.
From Alison Graham on twitter:
Oh dear, episode 5 of Case Histories & I've really lost interest. A shame it all went so bad so quickly and after a promising start, too.

Pec implants???? :shock:

You can build up muscle tone fast when you do kick boxing on a daily basis. Idiots indeed.

that's OK I'm gonna watch each ep as it is

If you've read the books, you know what is happening during each 2 ep arc, from the first
three books...

Alison Graham does tend to 'go off things'. Maybe it's ADHD ... :cool:

I'll judge for myself. Perhaps he's not whipping his shirt off enough later on ... that would explain things with her.

Man, you girls are lucky. I can only hope BBCAmerica airs it sometime soon. I need me a TV/Jason Isaacs fix, and soon.

I really don't think BBC America will telecast this program :(

You have a better chance of buying the Region 1 DVD, once its available

That's it.....I'm moving to Europe.
Ok, maybe it'd be cheaper to wait for a Region 1 copy. *fingerscrossed*

I think you're right. BBC Amer only seems to be showing programs made is the US and not shows from England.

Our best bet is Mystery Theater on PBS. They still show some great stuff.

Well, I watch Dr. Who, L&O UK, Being Human, and Graham Norton. All BBC productions. I just looked through a week's lineup, and the only US produced shows are X-Files and Star Trek: TNG. So let's not hold out hope for BBC America. :pop

Yes Char. The State WIthin was on BBCamer.
Among the shows I get are The Tudors, Star Trek-TNG, Battlestar Gal, and assorted american movies. This week TOP Gear, a british show was on 6 times. Not a good variety. I used to love that channel with all it's mysteries but I've given up on them.
Maybe the different cable companies show different features.
