In case anyone is still interested in Orphan Black all of season 1 is free on Amazon Prime. Season 2 should be starting soon I see all of season 1 OnDemand too.

Wrong thread -- that show comes from the "America" portion of "BBC America."

But, yes, Season 2 premieres on BBC America on April 19.

You should be glad there were only 3 Jonathan Creek's, they were terrible.

Karl Pilkington Moaning of Life was pretty good.

DCI Banks is solid as ever.

Not sure if this one has been mentioned but I'm currently watching the second season of The Hour, about an investigative news show in mid-1950's England. Subtle, low-key, very well-written and acted. Excellent show.

Masterpiece Theater is showing a Mr. Selfridge marathon and Mr. Selfridge II.

I figure I can pass on the first Season because it's on Netflix, if not Amazon.

Alos Orphan Black is starting on BBCA.

To repeat Orphan Black = not a British show.

I just found An Idiot Abroad on Netflix. Why was I not told about this hilarity before?

You were. You just weren't paying attention.

I mentioned it on the Netflix thread, but we watched London Hospital on Amazon Prime over the past few days. 2 Seasons, 10 episodes in all. Sort of Grey's Anatomy meets Downton Abbey.

Endeavor came back tonight.

Turks & Caicos and Salting the Battlefield were two one off TV specials Follow ups to Page Eight which was great.

Just finished DCI Banks, very enjoyable.

Inventive, yes. Twisted and somewhat perverted, definitely.

Perverted ? Really that was just in the first ep and that was done to garner attention for the new show. None of the rest had stuff like that (as far as I remember).

'Secrets & Lies'

Australian not British. I thought I would suggest it anyway since I like it. It has a 'Broadchurch' vibe but is different enough to still be interesting. It's only 6 episodes. Final episode airs next week.

The lead actor also stars in "The Red Road".


Quote:
The series follows the story of a family man who finds the body of a young boy and quickly becomes the prime murder suspect. He has no choice but to try to find the real killer as his marriage, his kids, his reputation and his sanity are all at stake.

I signed up for a free month of Hulu + over the weekend. I stumbled across "Spy" and watched the 6 episode 1st season. I thought it was pretty good. I watched a couple episodes into season 2 and it seems to be holding up.

'Undeniable'

Quote:
Brand new two-part thriller about a woman called Jane Fielding who believes she recognises her mother's killer 23 years after the murder took place. Nearly a quarter of a century later, Jane is married to Rob and has a daughter of her own, but the traumatic events of that day still haunt her. She was the sole witness and is constantly aware that the murderer is still at large. While on a routine visit to hospital, she locks eyes with the man believes killed her mother. Andrew Rawlins is a respected consultant oncologist and family man whose status and impeccable demeanour make him an unlikely suspect. Furthermore, it emerges that Jane has made accusations against others in the past - identifications which proved to be entirely false. Her family and the investigating police begin to worry that this is just another such claim and that Jane is crumbling emotionally before their eyes.
Starring 'Peter Firth' (MI-5/Spooks)

I agree, except that several of the other episodes were extremely sexual in nature, like the guys pedaling bikes forced to watch porn and were penalized if they refused. I will say that the stories were quite imaginative and different.

Spy was great! Sadly, there was no season 3. There was a mention last year of a US version but I haven't heard anything more, so it likely died. I don't know that it would have translated well anyway. It's very British humour.

http://www.comedy.co.uk/news/story/0...ed_two_series/

It was announced last week that Rob Corddry, perhaps best known as a correspondent for The Daily Show and as Lou in Hot Tub Time Machine, will be taking on the role of Tim for the US pilot. Meanwhile, young actor Mason Cook will play Marcus and Ken Jeong, a star of Community and The Hangover movie franchise, will take on Lindsay's role, The Examiner.

Moone Boy is on Hulu I think. That's a great show.

I watched at least the first season of that. That is Chris O'Dowd as a kid's imaginary friend, right?

Finished season 2 of Line of Duty and highly recommend it. Both seasons are now available on Hulu.

Started watching this due to your mention here, finished six eps so far. The first case (first season) was good, this second season is excellent. The cases are very clever and intriguing. Really liking this series.

I think it gets better and better as the season goes on.

I enjoyed a 3 part series from last year called The Guilty

The fantastic In The Flesh returns for 6 episodes on May 4th

I just finished the last Endeavour of the season. I thought the season was outstanding, though very dark.
