    Happy Valley [BBC One]

    Anyone watching this? A couple episodes in to the first series (orig. April 2014) it's rather good -- say, oh, 8.5/10 judged with a critical (and perhaps rather jaundiced) eye. What say thee? Anyone? (Bonus: set in Yorkshire; has nothing to do with Penn State.)

    Two more shows to go, then the wait for new episodes. Sarah Lancashire's a marvel.

    I binge watched it in August. I also recommend "The Fall" and season 4 of The Killing (don't have to really see the other seasons.) Waiting for season 2 of both of those series, as well as season 3 House of Cards.
    IMO

    First they came for the communists and I did not speak out because I was not a communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
    Finally, they came for me and there was no one left to speak out.

    I watched it when it was on earlier in the year. Thought it was excellent.
