I really enjoyed Pagan Peak.

 

Just seen the trailer for the second series of Killing Eve - it suggests it is only on iView.

 

Anyone a fan of Tin Star?

Hope it gets better ( Project Blue Book ) found it a bit ‘cheesy.

I thought I was well up to speed with all the good euro dramas, especially the nordic noir, but this thread shows I have missed a lot. Thanks for everyone posting.

 

Here are some suggestions missed, or only posted by one other member.

 

Dark - if you liked Stranger Things, this German drama is full on and set half in the 80's

Gamorra - brilliant Italian crime drama, especially the 1st season.

Les Revenants - Superior French original of 'The Returned'

The Disappearance - Another great French series

Fortitude - This is in English, but stars Sofie Grabol of The Killing fame, and a host of other scandi stars. Set in the Norwegian arctic.

Just binged season 2 of Counterpart. Enjoyed it. Was a bit concerned they were going to try and drag it out with more seasons. They kept it moving with a good ending.
Now for Killing Eve once more episodes are released.

Just started Tin Star last night. Enjoyed the 1st ep. Tim Roth is usually pretty reliable.

It's easy to watch and flows nicely, touched with the occasional slice of black humour.

Thoroughly enjoying Pagans Peak, just fantastic.

 

Incredible scenery, excellent dark brooding soundtrack, enveloping plot, a lot to like.

Looking forward toTin Star! Stars Tim Roth and it's a joint UK/Canadian production

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/1467331139807/tin-star

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/tin_star/s01

< Set in the majestic Canadian Rockies, Tin Star tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth), a former British detective now small town police chief, who brings his family to the tiny, tranquil town of Little Big Bear for a better life. When a vast new oil refinery, fronted by corporate liaison Elizabeth Bradshaw (Hendricks), opens nearby and their new home is flooded with workers looking for drugs, gambling and prostitution, Jim has to work hard to protect his family and the town from organized crime. Then crime strikes back. And when Jim's family suffers a shocking tragedy, old, dark and dangerous secrets surface. We discover that Jim is not the man we think he is but is in fact 'Jack' - the professional name for his alcoholic alter-ego: a man more unpredictable, more charismatic and infinitely more menacing than Jim. Part drama, part thriller and part dark comedy, Tin Star is an exhilaratingly smart, breathlessly suspenseful thrill ride of a show as deceit, guilt, love, and all-consuming rage lead inexorably to a gut-wrenching finale. >

Sadly Tin Star started to lose the plot in the last couple of episodes!

@Luc not your usual bland cookie cutter yank stuff, still slightly clichéd but very watchable, IMO.

 

Doesn't hold a candle to the better French and Nordic series on there but blows mainstream viewing out of the water. I still see 'Little Finger' a bit when I see Aiden Gillen acting but I am getting better. :D

The first season of Project Blue Book trundled to a close this week.  There are so many unexplained plot lines that there obviously be a second series (and enough material for several more if they lift their game). 

 

For example, who is Susie Miller, Mimi Hynek's mysterious pseudo-lesbian friend?  Is she the communist spy, rather than the hapless next door neighbour?  Why did she kill her partner?  It certainly seems like it in the early episodes but I get the impression that she has 'turned' by the end of the series.

 

Why was nothing more made of the alien-like body seen suspended in a tank?

 

And so on.

 

For me, the weakness in the series is that the whole thing is too cloaked in mystery to the extent that it becomes a jumble.  Also, the running time of just over 40 minute fer episode is too short to do justice to the storyline of each event.

 

Don't get me wrong - I kind of enjoyed the series and will watch the next one, but was left with the feeling that it could have been so much better.

I like it, I also like the mysteries that continue and are yet to be explained...or not, I'm OK either way as the reality is not everything may be explained :alien:

 

Ah yes! Suzi :fear:

8 Days was fantastic, thoroughly recommend and Chernobyl also excellent.

 

I vaguely remember the incident back when I was in Yr 10 at High School but obviously not the horrific detail and have been ignorant to the legacy of all those cities, towns and forests that still sit in the exclusion zone. If we assume Wiki is accurate-

 

Compared with other nuclear events: The Chernobyl explosion put 400 times more radioactive material into the Earth's atmosphere than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima; atomic weapons tests conducted in the 1950s and 1960s all together are estimated to have put some 100 to 1,000 times more radioactive material into the atmosphere than the Chernobyl accident.

 

The exclusion zone remains haunting- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_Exclusion_Zone

 

Though I do remember the talk of the cloud travelling the earth and affecting us all. Remember nuclear annihilation due to a Yank-Russia dust up was a very real possibility at the time.
