Van der Valk (PBS) Rated PG-13

A Dutch detective works in Amsterdam using his human observation and street smarts. Starring Marc Warren, Maimie McCoy, and Luke Allen-Gale.

This show is a remake of the 1972 version, as well as based on the novels of Nicolas Freeling. It’s reminiscent of all the other shows that have a boding past. The characters all lack the sympathies of the audience; we don’t care what happens with them. It’s a political show, but with the numerous characters, it’s easy to lose track of who they are. Additionally, there are plot holes that make it a struggle to follow the story. It’s interesting but not worth a watch.
