Inspector Montalbano Comments

Oh dear dear!
What has happened to our lovely Montelbano? I really thought the actor was a 'stand in' for a few weeks! Far far too much dialogue and hardly any action in the new early episodes!
Tomos 10:18pm Tue 29 Aug

When is BBC 4 bringing Montalbano back. Soooooon please. We need this drama in our lives. thank you.
SHI 8:35pm Fri 19 Aug

I really miss this on Saturday nights. Miss the comical acting, scenery, Lucia, gorgeous music, the lingo, everything. The only decent thing on tv and they stopped it. Young Montalbano is ok but we want more Lucia series to be shown - PLEASE !!!

This series is too good to stop. One of the best TV there is. Why did the original series stop they were not too old. Can anyone tell me.

Inspector Perfect
Terrific. The cast, especially the telephonist so funny. Story lines are great. Before I watched this I never saw a foreign film.
Avid boxwatcher 10:24am Sun 18 Oct
Lacks Drama
This awful series is back and boring.Crime is treated as a joke and life is all a matter of snazzy suits and slurpy food
Mike 3:09pm Wed 29 Jul

what is happening. last night i sat in front of the tv at 9 and "niente" i really love the show, and i want it back.

Inspector Montalbano
Love inspector montalbano, please keep it on the TV every week!!
mountaingirl 9:12am Sat 18 Apr
BBC this should be on every week without a break you would get more viewers what a brilliant programme and Luca Zingaretti is so oooh. Lived in Sicily in my 20s. It is a beautiful island.
Sicilian chick 11:21am Sun 22 Feb
Where is Salvo?
New Year - 2015 - and no Salvo to fill my Saturday evening. I do hope he will be back soon.
DD 11:15pm Sat 3 Jan

tom 11:09pm Tue 23 Dec

Fed up 8:00pm Sat 30 Aug
Montalbano episode 10

Tonio 3:25pm Sat 30 Aug
Missing Montalbano
Having seen each series several times,and read the equally wonderful books I am missing episode 10,and Sicily is one of my favourite places,the people,the Greeks,the Romans,the food and fabulous landscapes
Segestafan 2:24pm Fri 29 Aug
Why are bbc4 only showing 9 episodes of Series I NO FINAL EPISODE
Ollie 8:14pm Sat 23 Aug
Andrea Camilleri
Your Montalbano is entirely credible and I am completely addicted to his character in both the books and film. Absolutely brilliant !
Warwick 8:02am Mon 11 Nov
Fabulous series
Absolutely enjoyed every episode, but agree that this series isn't as good as the first and altering some of the characters hasn't worked. Bring back the snappiness of the first series. Hope the BBC buys more episodes, and also of Young Montalbano which was adapted really well.
Adelina 10:17am Sun 10 Nov
More a Montalbano
Scuza me I'm a Lika da Inspectori Verra much.You bringa back him Ver soon or you asleep wid a da fishes eh.
cattarellas papa 12:27am Sun 10 Nov
Only Four Episodes
I cannot believe the BBC are only showing 4 episodes in this series. Considering this is one of the best foreign series, they have ever brought, you think they would show more
VR 11:47am Fri 8 Nov
Something is missing!
I adore Montalbano but there is something missing in this new series. There is less warmth and interplay between the characters and Montalbano has lost his soft look.
HZ 8:58am Sun 3 Nov
I miss the haunting tango theme music
The lovely Livia has been replaced and Mimi given a moustache which does not suit him. Are they much older than they were in the earlier series? Montalbano is now a snappy dresser. Still much the best of the BBC four Saturday 9p.m. shows
Zosia 2:11pm Thu 31 Oct
Disappointing new series
loved the first series, and the Young M. Was looking forward to the new episodes - disappointed, dismayed in fact that they have felt the need to pep the character up. Part of his sex appeal was his integrity, his ability to resist women throwing themselves at him!
GH 1:43am Tue 22 Oct
New series so disappointing :(
I so love this program.. But the new series is so disappointing. The clever and comic dialogues are gone. Too many repetitions of the dialogues with catarella that spoil the enjoyment of those occasional funny dialogues. The story made little sense. Hope the next one improves!
ENu 7:15pm Sun 20 Oct
Montalbano is back!
This is a quality programme,so little worth watching if you do not like the awful reality shows,will have something to watch Saturdays now.
gladrags 11:38am Sun 20 Oct
Super start
I didn’t watch the earlier series but I did watch the Young Montalbano which has given me a taste for this. I am so please it did.
Doc Keegan 11:01pm Sat 19 Oct
I absolutely love it. So glad he's back. Have texted all my friends who feel the same. Can't wait till Saturday.
Betty Davis 2:47pm Fri 18 Oct
bring back montalbano
When is the series coming back to BBC4. We want Montalbano to return
shi 9:00pm Wed 20 Mar
Amazing Salvo Montalbano
This series had been pure joy to watch- the scicilian humour shines through. Luca Zingaretti is sexy funny and definitely worth staying in for. More please!
Neanst 7:06am Wed 20 Mar
Meraviglioso Montalbano
Gillybean 9:27pm Wed 6 Mar
Inspector Montalbano
Repeat series one please, I missed it.
Annie 9:19pm Wed 27 Feb
Best Show
I wish we could have more of Inspector Montalbano - it was so different from the usual and I hope there will be more soon!!!!
daisy 3:49pm Tue 19 Feb
More of the Best, PER FAVORE!!
The best detective series on TV (in any language). Full of intrigue, action and some humour,plus the fantastic Sicilian atmosphere.
friar39 3:09pm Sat 9 Feb
please please bring back moltabano

montalbano 11:22am Sun 3 Feb
Montalbano is the main man his attitude, towards life, food, women is fantastic,crime fighting techniques are so good.
michele 1:06pm Sun 27 Jan
More more please
Absolutely fabulous. Is there a series 3? Please show it soon.
Wpc823 10:52pm Thu 10 Jan
More Please! Love this series and we're looking forward to more. Quite agree with Myobaso. Ditch the 'reality' shows and buy more good quality foreign series and we'll all watch with pleasure.
vigata fan 11:25am Fri 4 Jan
Salvo is supreme
I have recorded every episode and hope the next series will be available soon The very best treatment for depression. It lifts the spirits.
Luca fan 1:26pm Sat 22 Dec
The fabulous Montalbano
Would you please, please, please bring back Inspector Montalbano. It is the best thing on t.v. and I am adicted to it. Everyone I know loves it. It is fabulous.
Carolina 11:03pm Sat 8 Dec
Robust plots v High tech stuff
Bring more of the series to The channel. I caught this by chance and got absolutely hooked. This is different from other crime drama tending to high tech stuff and morose dysfunctional principals. The humour and the characters are endearing and makes me believe even the worst moments in life can become bearable surrounded by family and good friends.
Meng 5:02pm Thu 6 Dec
La maestria commissario
I've been addicted to this program. Please bring more.
