Two new shows last night

John Simm (Dr Who, Mad Dogs, Life on Mars) in Prey

Prey


Happy Valley from the people who made Last Tango in Halifax, though this is a grittier crime based show.

Happy Valley

Prey looks good - Thanks for mentioning it. Is it a straight-up intentional remake of The Fugitive, or just a similar premise?

Speaking of Last Tango...season 2 will begin on PBS on June 29th. It's a great show and I hope more people check it out.

Watched season one and just started on two. Good show. The first ep of the second season was intense.

Happy Valley
They both sound interesting but are getting pretty poor reviews from what I'm seeing. May be worth a view though after a few more episodes air.

???

The Guardian said Prey was "fabulous" and the Independent and Den of Geek were very positive (and it's only 3 episodes).

All three were also were positive about Happy Valley

Those are the only 3 sites I checked.

Finished second season of Line of Duty. Excellent, even better than the first. Keely Hawes is an absolutely amazing actress. Watch her in LOD, then in Upstairs Downstairs. It's hard to believe it's the same actress.

Just watched The Fear from a year or so back. Interesting and rather sad premise about a gang boss going through rapid early stage Alzheimers.

The Fear

Prey was very good. Formulaic but good. I like John Simm.

I just found out they're still making "Silent Witness", not with the same Doc. Last time I saw anything about it was in the 90's.

Happy Valley just keeps getting more intense with each episode. Just finished ep 4 of 6.

I just started watching Last Tango In Halifax (from 2012 and on Netflix I think). Not my usual crime related show but good after one episode.

I wasn't to crazy about it after the first episode, but my wife enjoyed it so we've seen the first 5 episodes. Glad we have - I misjudged it and it's gotten very good.

I've been watching New Tricks, a long-running Brit police series about a cold-case squad that is made up of a police DI and three retired policemen hired as consultants. Very entertaining and somewhat humorous. I don't even like cop shows but this one I like very much. I wish it were available streaming, but Netflixing the DVDs isn't that much of a hassle.

Yeah, I read about New Tricks in this thread. Watched a couple of episodes and ended up downloading all 10 seasons. Very entertaining.

Watched The Fall and Happy Valley over the last couple of wknds, both excellent. Hope they both have additional seasons.

I also watched two seasons of a mini-series called The Jury. The first season was from 2002 and starred Gerard Butler, the second season was from 2011 and starred Julie Waters. I thought it was quite good, but it's hard to find except by magical means.

2 Episodes left in Last Tango in Halifax. Season 1 was great but season 2 has become a little depressing, nothing but bad things happening

Has anyone watched The Take with Tom Hardy? My brother in law was visiting from Scotland and persuaded me to watch, I think it may be ten years old now, thought it was really good. Watched on Hulu Plus...

Yes I thought that was great. There was another one made by the same crew.....The Runaway.

Not new though

I saw The Take several years ago, it was superb. Afterwards I went on a tv board on another site and predicted that Tom Hardy would be a movie star. He was fascinating in that role.

Will be checking out The Runaway fer shure. Thanks.

The Runaway is on HULU and, something I have never seen before, you can stream it directly from IMDB

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1624845/...f_=tt_pv_vi_sm

It has Alan Cumming in it, amongst others.

I've got to stop checking this thread. I can barely keep up with the shows I already watch and I keep downloading more after coming here.

Watched The Runaway. It was good, certainly, but not up to the standard of The Take, which is one of the best mini-series I've ever seen.

Also watched The Escape Artist with David Tennant. Not great by any means, but certainly enjoyable, worth a watch.

Yeah I didn't think the Escape Artist was that great.
