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.
