We are completing our TV series stretch, before going back to Criterion.

Bloodlands is the last stop, and after first two episodes it definitely looks promising - unfortunately, there are only 8 episodes in two seasons.

VERY well done British show. You have to pay $5.99 for Acorn channel to see it, but I think it is worth it.

    Yes, I enjoyed Bloodlands. James Nesbitt is a good actor. A subscription to Britbox has keep me entertained throughout the summer with plenty of good crime dramas.

    With British series it is a hit and miss situation, some of them are just plain slow, lacking energy.

    found them both very enjoyable and with a decent pace delivering substantial details and complexities with fine acting.

    Our agreement on hit or miss may not align, but I've kept a list of what I've watched. Unfortunately, I'm on a lake vacation for a few days, and my list and TV are far behind. I'll post a few recommendations when I return.

    which isn't available in my region (US) so if you watch the Russel Crowe 2009 version I'll be waiting to hear what you thought.

     

    Same with Edge of Darkness I referred to the 1985 version, posted on August 14, 2021 at 21:18:02

    You got me to check...yes there will be a 2nd season, supposed to be in 2022.

    This is executive produced by the guy who made Line of Duty (6 seasons I think) and Bodyguard. Like Bloodlands, those have lots of unexpected plot twists that either keep things interesting or verge on self parody, I guess depending on the viewer's tolerance. If you like Bloodlands, check out those others.

     

    We have seen the other two, posted on August 15, 2021 at 15:46:31

    Line of Duty is superb, the Bodyguard was OK, too formulaic, I thought, reminded me of the one with Mimi Rogers.

    he's Jed Mercurio and while sometimes I roll my eyes, I like his style. I was more than a little disappointed with the past season of Line of Duty, however, I think it may have run its course.

    Sorry for the delay...I see that Britbox is running a promotion now for 99 cents a month for the first two months. For that price you should find something you like.

    The Victim
    Little Boy Blue
    Bancroft
    Trauma
    Grace
    Prime Suspect
    Bay
    A Confession

    You might find something among those. Or you may hate them all...

    Good luck
    Tom

    Might start tonight. Some names I recognize.

    We are making slow progress along New Tricks. It is entertaining in spots, but its humor is growing tedious.

    There's a couple of the things that I've seen on Amazon Prime recently which I would recommend--Howard's End (the 4 part series, not the 1992 movie) and The Tunnel (a British/French take on the Danish series Bron/Bridge).

    Hope all is well.
