Bottom Line: If you have been longing for a gum shoe series with a dash of comedy, this is what you’ve been looking for.
Created and produced by Regan Latimer and Bee Charmer Productions, B.J. Fletcher: Private Eye is an exciting new web series which has just finished posting it’s second season. Season One has already received a fantastic response having won the 2008 AfterEllen.com Web Series Contest in the United States. With an all Canadian cast and crew, featuring Lindy Zucker and Dana Puddicombe in the leading roles, B.J. Fletcher: Private Eye is a distinctly new and unique production bringing to life strong female characters with the right balance of action, comedy, and diversity.
This show is quirky in the best possible way, between B.J.’s audio diary and the well scripted physical comedy you get a sense that as much effort went into the details of direction as did into scripting the dialogue. (Style 4.5)
The ‘cases’ move quickly, the dialogue is punchy and the length which comes in under ten minutes is appropriate. In all, the stories keep you satisfied. (Pacing 4)
The most fun part of this story is the interplay between B.J. and George. The two actresses play off of each other beautifully, bumbling their way through case after case so authentically that you almost feel like they were meant for the P.I. game. (Storytelling 4)
