Tv Season Info
About an astute woman who investigates cheating husbands and missing dogs, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - with an endearing lead performance by Jill Scott - is actually kind of heart-warming.
It's as much of a love letter to the economically developing nation as it is a detective genre piece.
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency takes some time setting itself up Sunday night, but those who stay with it will be rewarded with the funniest and most charming lady detective series since Murder, She Wrote.
Detective series generally are not known for charm or sunniness. But The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency revels in both qualities, with often exhilarating results.
This is a series that marches to its own beat -- and distinctive music -- without clubbing viewers over the head with graphic violence or mangled corpses.
Audience Reviews for The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency: Season 1
This is just delightful. Very leisurely paced. I had to slow my western self down to drink in the sights of Botswana which the author/screenwriter/director very obviously love. Great acting all around. I love that women in Botswana deal with the body-issue same as here. Very enteraining.
