I first started watching Death in Paradise after reading the series description on Netflix. I was expecting a kind of crime sitcom show but it actually turned out to be a serious show filled with murder and deception. I watched the entire episode regardless and I was pleasantly surprised to find a well developed twist ending. Before I knew it, I had finished the entire first season and moved onto the next. The characters are likable and deliver strong performances in crucial scenes as the plots of each episode develop very smoothly.
