Need a tv series that I can watch with the burd.

We've watched breaking bad and orange is the new black.

Breaking bad was a bit out her comfort zone. Is she's not Into anything violent, so kinda need a comedy/romantic series? I dunno if that's even possible!

Spiral. French crime/politics/gang show, (somewhat lazily) dubbed the French Wire. Pretty gritty at times, shows the political manoeuvring within the french judicial system, focuses a fair bit on a few lawyers and a group of detectives. Earlier seasons tend to have a specific crime per episode plus the overarching story of the series, whereas series 4 (where I am currently) is mainly focused on the one case with the tribulations of the main characters throughout. 5th series has been filmed I think, with a 6th one ordered. Pretty sure it's all on netflix.

 

Don't make the mistake of calling it "spee-ral" in a French accent, which most folk do, as the French name is engrenages. :lol:

 

Also features the lovely Audrey Fleurot. :pinilla:

Believe might be suitable. Relatively tame and a decent story too.

Suits is decent mate, lawyer drama with added comedy bits. Think it's into it's 4th season in the states.

Why keep them on your hard drive if you've watched it?

 

Also it's hard not mention one that's now not been mentioned.

 

Maybe, believe, started about six weeks ago.

Spiral series is excellent and series one is about 10 years old from memory.

 

Mammon on ch4 is good.

 

Hinterland on bbc3 is decent.

 

Killing 1 and 2 are excellent but not the American version. Not a fan of American tv series tbh

Finished Generation War. Also watched a debate after it questioning issues such as Jews being friends with officers in 1941 and the way Poles were portrayed as Anti Semites.

Good drama worth watching.
