Hi all,
I know we had one of these on TFF, so I thought I would set up another one to see if there were anymore takers. Anyone see the very first wallander episodes over Christmas and anyone currently watching the French drama "spiral".
:)

I love all of the Scandinavian stuff. The Killing (Forbrydelsen) and The Bridge (Bron) were both excellent and I've still got Borgen to watch.

Spiral is excellent. If you like your French police stuff then try Braquo. Very similar, but even more violent.

Killing and Bridge were quality. Wallander was where it all started and was a truly excellent series.

Finally watching Borgen. Just started season 3. Not loving Casper's new hair style. Holla at me Alty.

Yeah looking forward to the second series of Les Revenants coming back once again. Haven't watched any Scandi stuff as yet though it does appeal.

I believe they are still filming the second series of Les Revenants, so won't be aired for quite a while.

Not really a fan of crime dramas but Spiral is ok.

I like all the foreign drama to be honest. Just brought the killing on dvd so I shall be watching that! Anyone been watching The legacy of sky? Les Revenants looks good and another one on my list to watch! Spiral is my favourite!

I've finished The Legacy not sure where Sky are up to it but it maintains its quality throughout.

I missed the beginning of it as I wasn't sure whether it was any good. May have to watch it now you have said that!

The Killing, The Bridge and Borgen are all great.

I quite liked Wallander but I thought a fair few of the episodes had fairly major plot holes.

Really liked Salamander until the very weak ending.

Didn't like Arne Dahl or Spiral.

I've seen both seasons of The Bridge but haven't seen any of the others.
Be interesting to see how series 3 stacks up with the loss of Martin Rhode.

Birgitte Nyborg is a dominatrix type in a new arty erotic thriller.


You'll probs think it's pretentious guff, but I thought you'd want to know.
