This series is different from the past detective stories. The Lieutenant is collection of true mystery stories in which the detective, Ninzabuto Furuhata, must solve ingenious crimes and outwit elusive criminals. Although Ninzabuto Furuhata is a government officer, he does not wear a tie. Although he specializes in murder cases, he does not carry a gun. He does not use violence. More than anything, Ninzaburo Furuhata conducts himself as a gentleman, and uncovers the tricks which outwitting genius criminals play by cool reasoning and smooth talking. In every episode, Ninzabuto Furuhata will introduce a different criminal in his memory, and share his experience tracking and interacting with these criminals.

1. The Greatest Suiri Dorama Ever! [Rating: 10/10]
This is the greatest series ever (in my opinion). Tamura Masakazu plays Furuhata Ninzaburo, a rather eccentric detective you always dresses in black. Along with his sidekick Imaizumi, who is completely useless and in many episodes either gets in the way of Furuhata or even gets in serious trouble but is still Furuhata's best friend, he makes the criminals with their well thought out crimes stammer unable to give an answer that makes sense to Furuhata. He immediately knows who the murderer is upon meeting them and continues to follow and bother them with his amazing deducing skill. His characteristic is to slap Imaizumi on his shiny head and ride to the scene of the crime on a bicycle while constantly forgetting his coworkers name. At times he is a charming gentleman and at times he acts like a complete idiot but in the end, he pushes every suspect into a corner as the greatest detective in the world.

2. Good, warm, relaxing detective show. [Rating: 9/10]
This is very much like a Japanese version of Columbo (long-running 1970s American detective show with Peter Falk). If you like one, you will probably like the other as long as the language barrier doesn't stop you.

After watching this, get the minor spin-off with Nishimura Masahiko and Ito Toshihito. It's not a real show; they just have some fun with it, and it's hilarious. I think it's called "Imaizumi," but it doesn't seem to be in the JDorama database.

There's an old Italian saying (of course, soccer-related - pardon, calcio-related ^__^) that goes like this: "squadra vincente non si cambia". That is, "never change a winning team" - meaning, when a formula works, there's no reason to modify it!
That phrase fits perfectly to this second season of the acclaimed dorama "Furuhata Ninzaburo": the first season had been basically perfect, so why should they go and modify anything for the following season?
Luckily they didn't, and the result is just as good as the original!
As always in series with an episodic structure, some episodes are better than the rest; if I were to name a personal top3, I'd say first #10 - a real masterpiece! - and right next #9 and #4 ^__-

A really well known drama serial which I have wished to watch long time ago. I like detective/mystery stories a lot, but dun really like the style of the story plot: know who the murderer first & then show how to convict him. Can't really bear to finish the episod of Honami Suzuki whom i like. Not really my cup of tea.

not as great as i expected it to be.. sometimes when the answer gets too easy to guess, the surprise element is not there anymore.. also i got a little sick of furuhata's voice and way of talking.. ^^''

it's quite an interesting detective show. i think it's rather cool as not all of them are ur typical police case, some of them are rather unique.

Mystery dramas, the smart-talking man we all know and love, and a colorful cast of characters. Yay.
