Your Weekend Justice #175: Tales That Hit the Burger King Drive-Thru Clearance Bar

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that wants to indoctrinate the kids of tomorrow in a club that combines community spirit with the ultimate dissolution of reality as we know it. Combine the Scouts with hobos and get Grant Morrison and Greg Bear to write the novelization while on speed. Then light it on fire. For your own safety. (That in itself is a badge.)

    Top 10 Murders in Midsomer County

    Midsomer Murders Richard Briers and John Nettles

    I admit it–I love Midsomer Murders. Apparently this is just as addled as my mysterious love for Murder, She Wrote…but it’s just a fabulous show. In a country where handguns are illegal, the producers and writers get rather creative with the modus operandi of their killers. Having watched pretty much the entire series to date, I decided to rate my 10 favorite murder weapons/methods/discoveries exhibited on the show. We previously had this post helpfully annotated with videos of the kills in question, but they’ve all been taken down, not to return. But hey, these are all on Netflix, so it’s quite possible to go and sample them yourself. If the videos ever resurface, we’ll re-edit again.

    To grab copies of Midsomer Murders for yourself, check out the Amazon widget at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

    My Advice: Catch it on cable.

    Midsomer County in the heart of the English countryside is filled with picturesque vistas, quaint villages, and if you believe the episodes in this series, a great deal of dead bodies. Dastardly crimes are being committed–everything from a man beheaded in his own home, to women strangled with old school ties, to a local landowner shot in the chest during a dispute with two tribes of Travelers to an old manor house with disturbing apparitions causing a widow to lose her mind. If this were the first half of the 20th Century, there would be an aristocratic sleuth or little old busybody poking around the crime scene. But since this is the new millennium, the local constabulary is on the case and on the ball. The men to sort through all the lies, secrets, and suspects are Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby (Horowitz) and his young assistant Detective Sergeant Troy (Casey). They probe around the hedgerows and village commons finding the ugly emotions hidden among the scenic surroundings.
