I thought I would hate it the first few minutes in but I got hooked. I watched Collateral over the last few nights, it was ok. I still have Trauma waiting to watch but no sure I am in the mood for that the now after Save Me.

I am kind of stuck for stuff to watch, I hate not having something lined up to watch at night. I have been saving the episodes of Marcella up so I can watch a few in a row. I usually don't like Anna Friel but I thought she was really good in the first series.


Hi Dis, we have similar viewing tastes.

Collateral was goodish, and like you I'm not keen on Anna Friel but quite liked Marcella. Save me was in another class, brilliantly acted and gritty as. Looking forward to a second series as it's about the best thing I've watched recently.

Currently working my way through Keeping Faith, not bad.

we tend to watch anything crime series related, with at least five to six series/seasons available. To name but a few...

Criminal minds
Dexter
Bones
The Shield
Top of my rating would have to be Justified. Brilliant....loved Walton Goggins in it. He was the star of the show by a long way. :yess:


Edited to say we are quite enjoying watching Elementary at the moment.

Walton is a superb actor.

I watch too many crime dramas to name and yes Elementary is fun - with the added bonus of Lucy who is simply stunning. :thumbsup:

Seven Seconds (Netflix) - police corruption drama - bloody awful in places, the content not the show.

Ahhh, I was wondering about that. I've seen similar comments online by other people.

Going to give that one a miss.

It's worth watching - but if you're not in the mood perhaps a little too emotionally engaging for those who believe in fairness, justice etc.

Good line up of shows.

I'm hoping The 100 will be back very soon, some time in the Spring is the ballpark for it's return.

Watched the last episode of the current Shetland series. It doesn't blow you out of the water but it's okay and beautiful landscapes.

Thank you for the list, it's very helpful. :yess:
Some I have come across before like Son's of Anarchy (might give it a try sometime) after all I believe Walton is in it? :laughing: I did also see The Bridge but the trailer I watched wasn't in English so I gave up on it, but you obviously can get it so I will def take another look for it.

Have you seen The Americans?
I don't often go back to a series once I run out of episodes but they are making a last series this year and will probably get that when I can.

Oh yeah, I do remember reading that now you come to mention it. I'm not sure that's how I want to see him really, so I think I will carry on checking some of the others on the list. :smilin:
