In south africa the trailers for that series were repeated at every ad break on our satelite service for weeks on end. By the time the series began I was sick to death of it already and gave it a miss

Ah, man, that's too bad. Give it some time. It's very much worth watching. (My first reaction to your post was I never saw an ad for this show--simply stumbled across it on Netflix by chance.)

After about 10 years of horrible 'reality' TV, it seems we're living in a golden age--the only problem is finding out what's on--and what's worth watching.

Try "Mad Dogs" and "Terriers" for a little escapism. Not great, but not horrible either.

Excellent show, yes to subtitles. I loved the setup of the horse racing fix.

Great stuff.

I watched all of season 3 over 2 days, it was a short season but really good, not as good as season 2 or 3 but both of those seasons set the bar really high. My biggest complaint was use of modern music, in the first 2 seasons it was done moderately and helped punctuate certain parts of the show, this season it was almost like a gimmick and, at least to me, bordered on annoying..With out revealing too much, I liked the portrayal of the aristocrats and their lifestyle, it helped paint a realistic picture in my brain that no amount of reading, interviews or documentaries could......I wish there was someone who could do like that guy in the Vikings thread and explain a little of the detail and historical context for each episode, I wonder how close the show follows real events and such.

I watched the whole season in three days. I was disappointed in the ending. I wonder how quick they will produce season 4?

I thought season 3 seemed very forced and disorganized. It seemed like they were trying to build up to something but never got there.

It was okay, but I think a few more episodes would have helped.

Yeah, Macka, way too short. I didn't realize the sixth episode was the end until the end. I was all like wtf? "Forced" is a good way to put the entire season.

I'm getting (more than) a little tired of these 6-10 episode seasons we need to wait an entire year for... and I'm not just talking about PB...

That said, The Night Manager, which was a fully contained serialization of a novel, worked perfectly well for me. It's the expectation of 'more' that's maddening. Maybe that's their point?

The only good thing about the 6 episode season is that they are easy to do a relatively quick binge on, unlike some of the lengthier 13 episode cable series.

It probably wouldn't be so bad if the break between seasons wasn't so long. I'm still looking forward to another 6 episode season of The Fall, also a BBC series.

I waited awhile to break this open, but good series so far. I am on S2 E3, where Polly's son is introduced.

Tom Hardy has great acting chops and seems in his element.

Binged Season 4 in two days. Hope Netflix doesn't end this one like Longmire.

Watched the first couple episodes of season 4 last night. I don't think this 6-episodes every 14 months shit is going to be sustainable for another season. Maybe 1. I'm sensing the shark's been jumped.

Agreed. I feel the same way. It is a series that takes 12 mos to produce new 6-part series? Yeah nah.

Finally, caught up with this show and tying to get through all 4-seasons. I give it 4/5 stars.

Tommy must be a feline as he definitely used up a couple of lives over the life of the show. He's an interesting character, and you can see how the writers have made his PTSD a major component of his character. He's definitely out there in his behavior but even he was outdone by that Russian lover of his; she took "hot and crazy" to a new level.
