Murder city Beats them all!!
4 May 2005 | by stana_bojSee all my reviews

Murder city is the best crime show that Australia has ever shown. Thank you channel seven. It began at 11.00pm every Saturday. I did not miss one episode even though it was on quite late. That is how much I LOVED this show.

Kris Marshall's character, Luke stone, is very well acted. He is an unique and very talented actor. Before watching Murder City i had never heard of Kris, even though i watched Doctor Zhivago (great movie) but after watching this show he was up with my favorite actors such as Edward Norton and Paul Neumann.

This show is not a typical American(not that some of them are not good) crime show but a unique, REALISTC and very informative series. While in some situations the mood of the show may be depressing, just like in any crime show, it is also very funny, unlike other shows.

Unfortunately, the show is not on anymore. It was just stopped at once without a reason or warning. So please put it back on!!!!!
