    the 1st episode was great..
    stars the always compelling stellan skarsgard....

    [​IMG]The original drama series centers on John River (Skarsgård), a brilliant police officer whose genius and fault line is the fragility of his mind — a man haunted by the murder victims whose cases he must lay to rest. Nicola Walker (Last Tango In Halifax) will play River’s colleague and confidante, Detective Sgt. Jackie “Stevie” Stevenson, with Adeel Akhtar (Utopia) as Detective Sgt. Ira King. Lesley Manville (An Adventure In Space And Time) will play their superior, Chief Inspector Chrissie Read. Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan) plays a notorious killer who haunts River. Additional cast includes Sorcha Cusack (Father Brown) as Stevie’s mother, Bridie, and Georgina Rich (Sherlock) plays Rosa, a police psychiatrist.

    https://www.sling.com/
    $20 a month ,has over 20 channels, many of which i used to watch on cable..
    plus u can get hbo for $15/mo.
    i like the 3 epix ch.,sundance ch package for only $5/mo.

    ETA its live tv with ads but still worth the price i think

    If you don't mind subtitles The Bridge is a great show. There are several versions but the Swedish/Danish version is the best.
    https://thekillingtimestv.wordpress.com/category/the-bridge-2/page/2/ This link also has information on other programs. Hinterland is another good one.

    "Happy Valley" is a lot more than merely interesting. Sarah Lancashire is fantastic in it; you can see and feel the weight on her. The utter exhaustion and the dogged perseverance in spite of it. It's a must-see.

    other good/great shows from the UK:

    The Night Manager (must-see)
    Endeavour (must-see)
    London Spy
    The Enfield Haunting
    Peaky Blinders (must-see)
    Unforgotten (also with River's Nicola Walker)
    Shetland
    Whitechapel
    This is England
    just about anything with John Simm
    What Remains
    The Shadow Line
    The Fear
