    Yeah, I can't argue with that. Not for everyone, I suppose.

    I loved it. Can see why it can be considered dark and gloomy, but what isn't, nowadays? At least I found the violence not too difficult to stomach. I thought the characters were great, and I hope they make more!

    That is a blast from the past, but if you like it, ....go for it, we have Flying doctors at the moment, how political correct.

    Whitechapel on Hulu. Not for the faint of heart, but I like it. I'm about to re-watch Line of Duty on Amazon Prime, one of my all-time favorite detective shows.

    Just started Better Call Saul tonight, from Season 1 episode 1. Very clever and entertaining stuff. I see Mike Ermantraut is going to be around... So I suppose Gus Fring can't be too far behind.

    You might like Ripper Street, though it's set in the times of the Ripper, and not modern London. It grows in intensity as it progresses, very good cast too...

    Great series! In some ways I'm finding it more enjoyable than Breaking Bad, especially as the tension builds as it approaches the BB timeline.

    It's one of those iconic mysteries, was he a surgeon, a member of royalty, I doubt we'll ever know. Ripper Street does really well to portray London in that period, it's a pity they stopped making it, really...

    I've been watching Waking the Dead (2000-2011) recently - no, not yet another zombie franchise but about a London-based CID/profiling/forensic 'cold case' team. I like the episodes I've seen but occasionally some elements of the plots either zoom around at the speed of light or they seem to plod along with all the pace of an arthritic gastropod. Any fans here? If so, I have a coupla questions about one of the more celebrated episodes entitled Sins.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
