It is fascinating to read the myriad of comments regarding this DVD. I am on the side of the group who think it was banal, not funny at all and after slogging through the entire first episode, had decided that I would not watch any more episodes at about the half-way mark. I certainly do agree that no one does humo(u)r as well as the English, but how this was described as being a comedy is beyond me. I am happy that some people saw the humor and were able to get good laughs from it. That was not me. I shall not be watching any more episodes. I never felt any affinity with the two main characters and none of the other actors peaked my interest at any level except to think, "Well, that was dumb!" Okay, so the bar tender who was a comrade of the after-hours gambling group was good, IMHO. His charm was well-played and his lines were well delivered. He was literally the only actor in the episode who came alive and made his part be believable. The rest seemed to be phoning it in.

Two minutes and it is too stupid to waste time on.

Confession: I only checked this out because Toby Stephens was in it. And then I started watching and I was hooked. And then I couldn't stop laughing. And then everyone in my house started watching it with me. So you should watch this too if you like British comedy, some action, and some seriously snappish wit.

Although a bit bogged-down by a rather banal script, LucyPunch and TobyStephens, both wonderful actors, more than rise to the occasion making the very, very most of their roles. It's interesting to view TobyStephens in this role... so unlike the usual fare for him, and LucyPunch remains... always, the breath of very fresh air, bringing the quality of the blonde screwball comedy back-to-life: never too broad, always contolled, and always making it's bull's-eye. This series isn't too much other than what we've all seen before... little more than whipped-cream, but the two stars make it all so worthwhile; it's a whipped-cream concocted by master-pastry chefs, in the guise of Punch-Stephens!

There is some great humor in the three episodes of Vexed, Series 1. Two mismatched DIs work to solve homicides as they bicker over police procedures as well as their personal lives. Anyone who likes British comedy should enjoy this series.

boring rubbish

I really liked this show.So different from the typical cop/buddy show and totally British in humour,and it's the humour the writers go after.Delving into the funny bone of relationships amidst all the police drama and being 100 % pig-headed male chauvinist or female centric,these two cops manage to work together despite all the politically incorrect ramblings that go on.Toby Stephens always says whatever comes in his head and Lucy Punch ends up being a kind of "punching " bag for his caustic remarks,even though she punches back with equal enthusiasm,and he always ends up saying,"What,what did I say."I did find it extremely funny,laughing out loud many times,as well as Series 2.Worth it as well,to see Lucy Punch and her form fitting outfits.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Lucy Punch of "Doc Martin" fame saves this series and makes it worth watching. This series is a bit of a send-off of police series with over-the-top humor, which only sometimes works. Lucy is having trouble in her marriage, her partner has the hots for her, and what's quite transparent is that the writers are pointing them towards ending up together. Will keep watching Series 2, but less humor and more grit would make this better.
