It took me awhile to get accustomed to Selleck's style. I found the pace was slow moving. As I continued to watch the film, I started to like it much more. I have 2 more Jessie Stone dvd's to watch and I'm looking forward to them.

The fictional town is called Paradise and is allegedly in Massachusetts, not Maine.

How the mighty have fallen. Former heartthrob Tom Selleck now with a face so botoxed it hardly moves is again playing detective, this time as a retired alcy but who is nevertheless so disciplined he can still guzzle two whiskies a night without falling back into his old ways. Although he never takes his coat off in the show, no doubt to conceal girth he is likely hoping to shed, he continues predictably to attract a succession of much younger women, actors all as bad as Tom has sadly become. Better writers and director might improve this mess - someone younger than old Tom who might speed up the show's slow-rolling '70s pace and bring it into the new century.

"Lost in Paradise", 2015, stars an aged 70 year old Tom Selleck. His alcoholism still runs his life. Where does he get these younger women that seem to give themselves to a man at least twice their age? I will say I looked for the dog and was happy to see one arrive. But for crying out loud why do all the people connected to Jesse Stone have such lousy, depressing lives? I read some of other complimentary comments and wonder if I am watching a different Jesse Stone than they are. Tom Selleck legitimately deserves the observation, if not outright criticism, for never having developed his voice into an adult male's voice. He is too high-pitched and crackly sounding. Plus, Tom Selleck is no writer by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, the whole series is unimaginative and I find it hard to believe that anyone gives it a high rating.

These Tom Selleck vehicles are great for lowering your blood pressure. Best enjoyed with a glass of wine and a dog on your lap. Jesse is still battling demons, still trying to grow, and still attracts beautiful women.

The most recent of the Jesse Stone television films, this has the complicated chief of a small town police force finding things a little too peaceful, what with little crime happening in his town, and taking on a consultant role with the Boston PD to look at some cold cases. Selleck brings the sense of grit and gravity that suits the character very well indeed to the role.

This is the 9th story or episode in the series. You can find the title sequence on Wikipedia. Each episode is a separate plot line but there is ongoing character developments that make the films more interesting if you view in the produced sequence. Tom Selleck is perfect as the lead character, a disgraced big city detective who emerges as the police chief in a seaside community in Maine (I think) where there is an unusual amount of criminal activity. Hired as the "yes man" to city leaders he turns out to be uncontrollable in his dogged and deadly pursuit of the bad guys. Based on the novels of Robert B. Parker this series is as good as it gets.
