it'd be wise to go into this without any information so stray away from reviews, etc.

Incredibly interested by this. Anything with a Luther RIYL justifies a viewing from me. Need to try and fill the hole that show left in me at least a little bit. DL'ing the pilot right now.

Braquo is more akin to Luther than The Wire, and this is definitely a looser procedural. But it's very much grounded in a Wire-esque reality while diving into the morally ambiguous edges of Luther. It's engrossing and pulse pounding and for very entertaining TV that does make.

To be fair, I'm not touting this as some sort of second coming in the form of European television. It isn't. It's a fun and enjoyable television show that works well on a purely visceral level. It's fine.

I can get behind fine. Definitely not a favorite though.

Have you checked out Engrenages? It's been around for a few years (in its fourth season I think). It is a fantastic French police procedural.

Saw Braquo on Hulu and had been thinking of checking it out... I started the pilot the other night but fell asleep halfway through (granted it was 3 in the morning) but it seemed to have potential

I'm actually just through the second episode of Spiral as of a few days ago. I've heard a lot of great things about it. Have you see Borgen or Broen/Bron (the bridge)? I've been looking to get into those as well, but haven't had a recommendation from someone.
