    BBC consistently puts out great crime shows. I'm currently watching these two and they're excellent.

    Killing Eve - U.S. expat in London trying to catch a Russian assassin (who is hot btw). Sandra Oh plays the cop and does a great job. But the assassin makes the show. Attractively psychopathic.
    The show blends in some subtle comedy and it's an easy watch. 45 min. episodes that fly by. Wish I would have waited for the series to end so I could have binged it.
    8/10

    Line of Duty - 4 seasons so far. Focuses on AC 12 (British equivalent of an Internal Affairs division). Lots of twists. Each season has one main plot but the plots seem to be intertwined in something much larger.
    8/10

    I'd start with Killing Eve. You'll know in one episode if it's your thing or not.

    Line of Duty is a little more demanding. Some lulls. Especially Season 2. But I just finished Season 3 and it was very good.

    That was my thought process, so i started with LOD first so i wouldnt be disappointed. Im starting season 3 now. Once im done I'll give Killing Eve a glance

    Just seeing the title and the participants on this thread.

    I hope it's not what it could be.
    Not reading.

    I just finished the 4th of LOD. I've probably come down some on it. I'd still give it a 7 but I find myself picking it apart too much. And it's providing a little too much opportunity to do so.

    IDK...I should have finished these before rating.

    Killing Eve is still good but I think both of these shows are probably 7.

    I really enjoyed Line of Duty. Yeah, it's far from perfect but I love the "Red Riding"-feel to it. Hastings is solid gold during interrogations, I just hope they don't end up corrupting his character in Season 5...but I feel it's inevitable since the "H" mystery is technically still there, as well as him being a Mason. It would be like The Wire senselessly ruining McNulty's character in Season 5

    Glad you liked it. Right on about Hastings. He's great. I can't see them throwing him under the bus but then again, I can. My least favorite character is Fleming. They keep killing off the ones that interest me.

    But little doubt they'll keep the Masonic plot going.

    Good show but the biggest LOL to me was Fleming chasing the Rover on foot and making that shot. Wtf.

    And also Fleming still being able to go under cover. I was thinking the young drunk chick cop was going to have a bigger role and maybe take her place.

    Finished Killing Eve recently and have to lower my initial rating. Pretty uneven and had to make myself finish it. They should have focused more on the Russian chick and her handler. The chick carries the show. And less on Sandra Oh's character. Instead of 50/50, make it 80/20.

    Probably 6.5/10.

    I value my time too much why waste it watching TV shows.

    Sports, CNN, Movies and the History Channel, is about it.

    You have had some really good recommendations so the board credit is there.
    We can’t all possibly like the same stuff but you got solid takes.

    Shows like that are dime a dozen to boot.

    After having watched The Americans, it's hard to watch some second rate show about the same thing pretty much.

    This is another show entirely but I'm finding myself in the same boat when it comes to making myself finish a show that is becoming quite a drag to watch. Longmire started out really well but around season 3 it became stale as hell.

    I shouldn't dropped it then but I continued. It's taken me 3 months to finish season 4.

    I still like the show but there is so much victim of the week episode I can stomach.

    thats the show I need to watch...Tha Americans. I started it back when it started but didn’t pick it back up. The only thing is that I’ll probably have to rewatch the first 8 or 9 episodes which I hate doing.

    But it the consensus seems to be it’s an incredible show.

    Thanks.
