    Apologies if already mentioned but just watched 4 seasons of The Bureau. Insight into the inner workings of the French intelligence agency. Worth a watch if you can handle French sub-titles. It's on Amazon Prime/Sundance in the US, not sure where in the UK.

    I’m rewatching Spiral at the moment too. Midway through series 2 - I’m never eating cabbagey cheese again, too risky.

    I'm watching that now, so far I'm just astounded by the amount of cock-up's the police made.

    The scummy media certainly didn't help matters.

    Thanks for pointing that out ... I knew that was the literal translation. For some reason they gave the series a different, unconnected name on the English Netflix.

    Dix pour cent refers to the agents' cut of the fees.

    Just finished the 6 part serial 'The Undoing'. It features Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. Never been a fan of Kidman but she is great in this. Really enjoyed it.

    I woke up early the other day and decided to watch The Old Guard, staring Charlize Theron (released on Netflix last year).

    It's fairly silly, she's about 1,500 years old and part of a team of immortals tasked with getting rid of the world's baddies. The action scenes are pretty well done, but she's supposed to be staying under the radar, which isn't easy when you look like Charlize Theron and wander around dressed like Mad Max, permanently sporting a pair of Ray-Ban's.

    Still, it was watchable, if you've got nothing better to do.

    The acting is excellent too. Real comedy. And after you’ve had half hour of that, it reminds you that there’s something bigger going on in this series. It’s very, very good. Loving the mystery of working out what exactly is happening.

    I'm not sure it totally fits with this thread, but I watched a few different series, all with a common link, that made combined interesting viewing.

    I quite like the programmes involving psychological profilers, although some of their deductive reasoning regarding suspects and crimes tests credulity, but then I saw the 'I am a killer' series on Netflix, which gives the killers version, followed by other peoples experiences, and it really flagged up how difficult such a task is in the real world.

    If you get chance, watch one of the I am a Killer episodes, and make a decision in the first half on whether the killer is lying about events or not and if you would let them free, then test your decision by watching the rest of the programme.
