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.

The first three seasons of that are on Netflix. Will definitely check it out.
Please do and let me know what you think.

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.
I just posted in the House of Cards thread that everyone and their mother should be watching Borgen. It's absolutely fantastic. I haven't gotten a chance to see Broen yet though.

Also, as long as we're talking Danish Noir, go watch Those Who Kill so you can be caught up for when A&E butchers it like AMC did with Forbrydelsen.

I might be completely misremembering this, but did I read somewhere on here once that you lived in Norway for awhile? Maybe not Norway, but one of the Scandinavian countries?
Close-ish. The Netherlands.

Oh, okay, not too far off. Do you feel like living there had a big influence on your movie/tv watching preferences? You seem to know much more than most users about programs and films from the Scandinavian region even if you were in the Netherlands. Kind of a dumb question, but I'm curious.
I think so. I watched a lot of Channel 4 and Canal+ while I was over there and I think, at this point, most of the good foreign television programs show up on those networks, whether they be Channel 4 and Canal original programming or syndicated stuff.

We should try and get a list of stuff for people to watch to put in the first post, maybe? Is there anything special in the first Criterion post?
Maybe a list of countries and the current best shows coming out of each?
