Lovejoy and his friends let us back into their lives 5 years after Series 1 was filmed. Ian McShane explains this delay in the disk's extra features. Because it's newer, Series 2 looks fresher and brighter, with more intense colors. The best story, a double-header, tells us how Lovejoy and a Japanese collector join forces to thwart a swindler--featuring an emperor's tea bowl and a Russian icon. I am hooked on the Lovejoy tales!
