It's sunny with a chance of homicide in The Glades.

Matt Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who is forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain's wife. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. But this town outside the Florida Everglades isn't quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives in the field.

The Glades: Season One is available on DVD, Amazon Instant, and iTunes (click on the icons above for more details), and consists of 13 episodes that aired on A&E from July through October 2010.

The series' second season is currently airing on Sundays on the cable network.

Sergeant Cribb: The Complete Series, a Mystery TV Series
Sergeant Cribb: The Complete Series on DVD

Based on a character created by crime novelist Peter Lovesey, Sergeant Cribb stars Alan Dobie as the titular character, a Victorian England-era detective with the newly formed Scotland Yard CID.

Wearing his trademark bowler hat and squeaky boots, and with little support of his efforts from his superiors, Cribb relies on his own shrewdness and the plodding assistance of Constable Thackeray (played by William Simons) to expose the vile deeds of London's criminals.

Sergeant Cribb: The Complete Series is available on DVD (click on the icon above for more details), and consists of 14 episodes -- some of which were adapted directly from Lovesey's mysteries -- that originally aired in the UK during 1980 and 1981 under the title Cribb.
