I like this series. Father Brown (FB) is a crime solving Roman Catholic priest in rural England. The crime solving part being much to the chagrin of the local detective inspector. FB has a soft subtle supportive approach which breaks down barriers the police would have. FB is the personification of living life with good morals. The sex is very subtle. It is not overly violent. It is okay for all ages. Often, the person murdered is a nasty person with many people who dislike them for a valid reason. Sleuthing FB must get past all these obstacles to find out who committed the murder. FB is perspicacious. The detective is hapless. The original script was based on the Victorian Age around 1912. They decided to produce this series based on the 1950's. I don't mind. 1912 would be harder to replicate. Definitions: hapless (unfortunate, unlucky, luckless); personification (embodiment, incarnation, epitome, quintessence, essence); Perspicacious (discerning, shrewd, perceptive, astute, penetrating, observant, percipient, sharp-witted, sharp)
