You seen this @Corwin?

Seems relatively promising, but not blown away. Starting ep 2 now.

Re: Started watching this today

I have watched 2 seasons, and I enjoyed it. The district attorney from out of town is great. It grew on me.

It's a bit like the X-Files - there are episodes that focus on the main narrative and others that are filler, murder-of-the-week stuff.

Re: Started watching this today

The initial premise is very similar to Twin Peaks. The DA arriving to the sticks is very Dale Cooper.

I’m going to watch ep 2 tomorrow and see what it’s like.

Btw, I’m about to try Patriot based on your recommendation, and some other people whose taste I trust.

I absolutely loved this show! The police chief had a vibe very similar to Detective Linden from the Killing, which I also enjoyed. I loved the supernatural element and I loved the setting. I won't spoil anything.

Re: Started watching this today

Sounds like I definitely need to give this a proper shot…

Have you seen Dark?

Re: Started watching this today

I watched the first season and loved it!

Re: Started watching this today

Oh yeah, I think you maybe said before. S2 wasn’t great, but s3 was beautiful frankly.

Les Revenants is my other favourite foreign drama (aside from all the Italian gangster ones I watch).

Have you seen it?

No, I have not. It looks so good!!!!!

Re: Started watching this today

I watched a bit more of Black Spot and I’m liking it.

It’s definitely a slow burn. I’m less interested in the monster of the week stuff and more interesting in the overarching plot though.

I just watched the part where Major sees the girl in the cave (hallucinating), and gets dragged away.

Powerful stuff.

Re: Started watching this today

One of the best things I've ever seen.

Dark was beautiful. Black Spot doesn’t have this…so far for me I’m liking it but it’s 7/10

I was talking about Lee Revenants being one of the best things I've ever seen.

The plot twist at the end of s1 was very unexpected! So random

I can’t remember what it was! Can you remind me under a spoiler?

Re: Started watching this today

I liked the vibe and the cinematography. Some of the scenes are pretty emotionally gripping. It's uneven and like a lot of TV shows for me– just teasing that something will be resolved but never really is. I did really enjoy the music– sounded like something you'd hear in an American show set in the South or Appalachia.

Re: Started watching this today

I started watching a while ago, I liked it a lot but after about 4 episodes my commitment faded, mainly because too much mystery upon mystery every week and it reminded me of Lost in that respect. I did like the character of the allergy guy.

Re: Started watching this today

Same opinion as me

Re: Started watching this today

During my Xmas hols this week I’ve just about reached the end of s1 and I’d recommend continuing.

I’d rather it was more an overarching plot rather than the mongo of the week format tho
