Welcome to OTTplay Lost and Found , one podcast that gives you insights into critically acclaimed films but are lesser-known. I'm your host Nikhil with you. Stay locked.
Action comedies featuring cops have ranged from slapstick blockbusters such as Leslie Nielsen’s The Naked Gun to cookie-cutter sitcoms such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine. But when this genre is interpreted in the UK, it packs a dash of cheeky one-liners, a smudge of irreverent humour and often, even presented with a mystery about a certain unsolved crime. Today’s Lost and Found is Vexed, the 2010 British crime comedy series about the bizarre adventures of DI Jack Armstrong and the comically volatile relations he shares with his partners, DI Kate and in the second season with DI Georgina. Starring Toby Stephans in the lead, this is a show about an obnoxious police detective who can’t be bothered to keep his arrogant, and sometimes offensive, thoughts to himself. From his partners on investigations to possible suspects, everyone must suffer his peculiar manner or lack thereof. Those who’ve not taken fancy to this show have, in fact, pinned the blame on Stephans whose DI Armstrong is carved as unnecessarily atrocious and excessively intrusive, at least by British standards. But if you’re willing to accept this flawed cop, the hilarious banter that he shares with his partner detectives and inspectors makes it worth your screen time. Sure, there are plot points featuring a murder or three, various unexplained crimes and missing persons tracks that lead us to some shocking revelations. But if you’re adding this to your watch list, be assured, it’s less for the taut suspense and more for the light banter, and sub-plots about DI Armstrong’s numerous misadventures.
You can watch Vexed on Netflix
