A&E (Tuesdays: July 16, Aug. 13 and Sept. 24, 9 p.m. ET)


Over the years Americans have been duped into thinking that anything shipped over from Britain must be of unbelievably high quality, especially if the initials BBC are attached. In fact, much British TV fare is quite dull, including a great deal produced by the BBC. Witness this talky, snail's-paced A&E/BBC production. In the first episode, the crusty old detective Andy Dalziel. and his dapper young partner Peter Pascoe trade insults while investigating a series of murders in the north of England. Hey, didn't Karl Maiden and Michael Douglas do this 24 years ago in The Streets of San Francisco?
