Spiral: Worth Checking Out

Some time ago I watched a French TV series called Spiral. It was a gritty, edgy, urban cop show set in the less glamourous districts dealing with the rougher parts of life. I found it very well done, unsentimental. It was far tighter and less airbrushed than the Belasarius franchise (CSI:[ ], Law and Order etc) yet not thin and rather amateur in the Law and Order UK frame, which was a dropped ball if you ask me, not enough gravitas as yet. Maybe they will grow into it.

It is now being replayed on BBC FOUR and you can catch the episodes on iPlayer here.
