Not sure why the article would say that, since LinkTV is on DirecTV (no HD though) and Dish network.“Borgen” may be the hardest show to find on American television...
Orphan Black is great. The main actor, Tatiana Maslany, had me from the first episode where her character is supposed to be breaking open a briefcase and you can tell she really tore up her hand doing that. I thought, "Well, if she'll bleed for this, the least I can do is watch it."orphan black is pretty decent - sci-fi -ish but a bit funny as well, really great acting from the main character. i keep forgetting that it's the same person playing like 6 different people.
Finished watching the third and last season. Highly recommended.I've just seen season 1 of the the Danish series, Borgen.
It's pretty strong AND realistic.
Watched the final episode of that the other night. I'll miss that one. There will never be anything else like it.Treme!
Or not.I'm not really into post-apocalyptic stuff (post "rapture"?), but The Leftovers is a new one that looks intriguing.
Cheers. I thought the film (Gomorrah) was excellent.There's a new Italian mafia series, Gomorra (English title is Gomorrah), a follow-up to the 2008 movie.---->Mafia
If you like the genre, this series is something for you. Vaguely some True Detective similarities.I'm going to watch RECTIFY today.
Watched 3 episodes and it's ruthless. Never seen anything like this. The Sopranos is totally different.There's a new Italian mafia series, Gomorra (English title is Gomorrah), a follow-up to the 2008 movie.---->Mafia
I liked the original UK series of House of Cards. It captured the mood at the end of the Thatcher-era well. That was ages ago and the US version is (obviously) only loosely based on the original. I suspect if I watched it again it would be terribly dated too. Like you though, I just couldn't get into to the US version. It does seem like a very 'safe' attempt to produce the sort of drama that will have people fawning all over its writing, production and acting. Truth be told, I never really got into the West Wing as I thought that was pretty dull.Imagine the boardrooms full of back alley ass-sniffers who decide these things. "A show about politicians in Washington D.C.? Great? That's been done so many times there's virtually no risk! We'll take it! Do you have anything else? Something with a cop or a doctor? Maybe a cop who's also a doctor? And maybe he works in a newsroom on the weekends?"
