Zen begins this weekend!


I feel as though I've been waiting for the new Rufus Sewell mystery series, Zen, to begin for AGES. My wish will at last come true this weekend, when Zen debuts on Masterpiece Mystery with its first episode entitled Vendetta. Here's a bit about the episode:
Rufus Sewell stars as MASTERPIECE MYSTERY's newest sleuth Aurelio Zen in Zen, premiering Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 9pm (check local listings). In Vendetta, Zen navigates the perils of corrupt Roman politicians and his first crush since the demise of his marriage. Caterina Murino (Casino Royale), and Ed Stoppard (Upstairs Downstairs) also star in this adaptation of British crime writer Michael Dibdin's acclaimed book.
Personally, I have to think this series is a guaranteed win. Even if I end up not liking the story, I still get to see Rufus in a sharp suit. I can't lose, right? *wink*

Whew! Glad you posted this or I might have forgotten. It does seem like we've been waiting for ages!

@Lori - I KNOW! It's totally not fair that we've had to wait this long for Rufus and his delicious suits. ;)

I'm really excited to give this series a go! :) Who knows? Maybe it will be the next "Sherlock" (ie: fabulous!!!), since we have to wait soooooo long for the next season of that show... *sigh*

Thank you so much for posting this. Now, if I can just remind myself to go to the PBS website Monday evening to watch it.

@Amber S. - I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on Zen's debut!

@Michelle - You're welcome! The ep is up on the PBS website now (and so is my review post - excuse the shameless plug). ;)
