We are really enjoying "Line of Duty" on BBC2, only two episodes to go unfortunately.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

I just finished watching True Detective and it is in my opinion a must see, its an amazing mix of detective, crime, mystery and gothic (if one is into one or more of those things). I have to admit, I am somewhat surprised it is not a true story, it sounds so realistic!

Also, it is only 8 episodes, with a proper beginning, middle and end.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

I binge watched 'The Bridge' on Sat/Sun evening this weekend and...it was nice to hear Swedish and see Sweden/Denmark again. Kinda made me homesick. But, aside from that, I think you can stream the first season on BBC4, and soon season two as well and it's a wonderful mystery/nordic noir/police procedural. The ending was....somewhat of a anti-climax but still a terrific series.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

I'm fairly new into watching current dramas, but looking forward to something to start.

I'm between Homeland, House of Cards and Boardwalk Empire.

Any suggestions? or comparisons (If you like x, you would like y)?

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

A new series just started, it is called Resurrection, at the moment it looks like a Sci-Fi/Drama/Mystery type but have only watched first episode so things might change. It sees Omar Epps from House MD back in a leading role.

it's a 4-parter. I agree though, it looks good, I snatched it yesterday morning.

The second season of The Bridge was even better than the first one. They can try as many remakes as they want (France/UK, US/Mexico) but they will never be able to top the original for scenery, acting and story.

While similar in the story, Resurrection is not a remake of the award-winning French production "Les Revenants". I'm curious to watch it, especially given the fact that it's a mini-series (I'm starting to be a bit fed up of 23-episode seasons...).

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

If you lile Sci-fi, check out Helix. Unknown virus spreads out in a lab in the Arctic, CDC goes to the rescue and sheiße happens. Quite enjoyable if you like the genre (produce by Ronald D. Moore, who rebooted Battlestar Galactica years ago).

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
The series follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who travel to a research facility in the Arctic to investigate a potential outbreak of disease. While there, they find themselves stuck in a life-or-death situation that could decide the future of mankind

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Out of all of the recent ones, i would rate The Blacklist as one of the best.

Hannibal is good too.
