    Just noticed that the third season of Dark is out.

    I assume nobody watched the first two seasons as it is in German and therefore I never mentioned it before.
    However I noticed that I have season 1 in dual language and saw that season 3 can be downloaded somewhere in English so I assume it can now be watched on Netflix with English audio. Not sure how much is lost in translation.
    I give this show a 10 out of 10.

    If you like a big confusing chaos caused by messing around with time travel then watch this.
    Don't be put off by the first episode. I found the first a bit slow and boring(like a drama show) but the people were so intriguingly unfriendly and the cinematic 'darkness' of this place in Germany kept me going. From the third episode the story starts to kick in and then it goes exponentially.
    They compare it with Stranger things but I think Stranger Things is a kid show compared to this.
    I didn't really have too any problem with the multiple (age related) versions of the characters but this Wiki might help with all the time lines and worlds if required:


    Binge watching is recommended to keep on track, one a day works well after getting past the 'boring' first two episodes that are still required to understand the characters.

    All 5 series (20 episodes) of the British psychological crime series, Luther (description at , are available for download using the get_iplayer application.

    It stars Idris Elba as DCI John Luther and is well worth watching.

    If you don't know what get_iplayer is and how to use it, ask a SEARCH engine.

    The parts of boy's parents are played by James Nesbitt and Frances O'Connor.

    The second series, similar in content, concerns the disappearance of a young girl in Germany.

    In both series, the disappearances are investigated by the French detective, Julien Baptiste, played by
    Tchéky Karyo.

    Both series received very positive reviews, with critics praising the cast, especially Tchéky Karyo's performance, and also the storytelling.

    More detail at and also at the BBC website at .

    The series can be downloaded from the BBC website by using get_iplayer.

    In my opinion, British crime stores are hard to beat, but European crime is in a class of its own.

    Here's a short list of European television crime series that are well worth watching, provided you don't mind the use of sub-titles (and in some cases don't mind searching for them by using a SEARCH engine to locate subtitles websites).

    Recommended European TV Programs (copied from another site three years ago- I forget which one).
    ================================================== =========================

    Edderkoppen (The Spider)

    Camilla Läckberg (The Jinx, The Preacher, The Stonecutter); Arne Dahl series; Beck series; Wallander series; The Killing; Those Who Kill; Borgen; The Bridge; Den Fordömden; Sebastian Bergman 1 + 2; The Protectors; Edderkoppen; Snabba Cash; Maria Wern series; Annika Bengtzon series; Irene Hüss series; Head Hunters; Varg Veum; Van Veeteren; The Hypnotist.

    Swedish: The Sandhamn Murders
    Danish: Department Q”trilogy

    Swedish: 30 Degrees in February
    Norwegian: The Heavy Water Wars

    The Girl who kicked the Hornets Nest

    English hardcoded subs however this should help me thinks:







    – DICTE
    – VERDICT REVISED (oskyldigt dömd; season 1: 2011; season 2: 2012)
    – JOHAN FALK (season 3: 10-15)

    • Rejseholdet (Unit One)
    • Sebastian Bergman

    • Van Veeteren
    • Varg Veum
    • Vikings
    • Wallender (both Krister Hendrikson and Kenneth Branagh series)

    Swedish crime drama set in 1950s

    Also worth checking out:
    Rita (available on Netflix in many countries)
    Dag (funny Norwegian comedy) — hard to find — a few here w/ eng. subs
    Dicte (season 1) very hard to find with english subtitles — check Netflix
    Sandhamm Murders (with Jakob Cedergren from Those who Kill) — not as good as the other sabove.

    A few Icelandic series worth tryng to find:
    Pressa
    Reporters

    This search engines searches Netflix in All regions — could be of use


    The murders in Fjellbacka (swedish serie, this is really good!)
    Those who kill (danish serie, loved this one)
    Van Veeteren
    The murders in Sandhamn
    Johan Falk (love it! I think they are making another movie now, which is great news!)

    Thanks, managed to series link the first 4 seasons on SBS.
    Noticed SBS starts S5 on 29th, as you say, however BBCFirst on Ftel are showing complete S5 all 4 episodes back to back on Fri 31st from Midday

    Watched the first 2 episodes of S1 today, excellent show, I'm hooked.
    Cheers, Tiny

    I have just remembered a BBC series, which I found really captivating, when it was first released several years ago.

    The crime drama, Line of Duty, concerns the investigations of AC-12, a controversial police anti-corruption unit.

    There are 29 episodes in total across 5 series.

    It is currently being rebroadcast by the BBC and is available for watching via the BBC iPlayer app. (or save to your PC for storage or viewing later by using get_iplayer available from github.com).

    Just binged-watched the first season of Truth Seekers last weekend ().



    It's been a while since I watched anything from Nick Frost and Simon Pegg so it took me a few minutes to re-adjust to their sense of wackiness (think Hot Fuzz or Shaun Of The Dead) but once I got into it I was sorry it only ran for eight episodes. I believe there will be another season (at least) and I hope it's not still a year away!

    After suffering through Raised by Wolfs which I found extremely corny but still had some moments, I thought I will give SciFi a pass for a moment until the new season from Expanse comes out in December.
    So I am watching now something very different called Ratchet.
    It is very cinematic, very well acted, very catching story.
    I am only at episode 3 but I already give it 5 stars.

    I actually checked up on the lobotomy procedure from that time and it was spot on.

    Has anyone had a look at NEXT? There are about 4 episodes so far....
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    There is a pommy comedy show called by the same name "Raised by Wolves" it's much better than the scifi one.
