I love Nordic Noir TV shows. Just finished binging on 10 episodes of Jordskott, enjoyed it a lot but it wasn't as exciting as The Killing, still the best Nordic Noir for me. Or on the environmental issue, I prefer the more recent Occupied on Netflix.

Thanks for the recommendations on SBSOnDemand though, I didn't know about these shows so a great discovery for me :)

I will continue with Trapped next...

Trapped was excellent from EP 01-06, then it got sloppy and ...

Spring Tide on the other hand took a while to get really interesting and has wonderful ending.

Watch 2 episodes of Arnh Dahl, didn't like it that much so switched to Mammon. Thought it was very well produced. Although I suspected where it was going and really did not like the theme, it was so captivating I finished watching the series!

Beck is a good series. Beautifully written and well acted. Good if you prefer your drama more slow paced.

The Polish series The Border (So called Nordic & Beyond) is great too and a nice change after so much Nordic tvs :) can't wait for Season 2.

Well, that's a lot of TV... :)

Enjoyed The Valley very much.

 

Am loving Romanzo Criminale at the moment, fantastic Italian crime show. Made after a movie apparently.

'The Deep', set around Bondi Beach, with beautiful camera work and a good plot, starring Noah Taylor and Yael Stone. It's a four part murder mystery, third ep airs this week. No cringe factor, essential viewing for all Sydneysiders.

I watched this a couple of weeks ago.

Quite good too, but not in the same league as Stranger Things. IMO.
