We Own This City
Thought it was very good and made by the writers from The Wire. I love a good corrupt cop show!
I'm looking forward to watching it. About a year ago I followed the BBC (7 part) podcast on the story, called 'Bad Cops'
and was hooked.
The byline to the podcast was,  and why do good cops go bad?
my answer, because they weren't good to begin with.

Better Call Saul 6th and final season will be resuming soon after a hiatus, episodes 8 -13 will be aired from July 11th onward

Episode 7 was just class, one of the best from the series, though it should have been called "Howard's End".

I remember thinking Mexico would be crap but it turned out better.

So many things that are going to be revealed in these last few BCS episodes.

The Secret on Netflix. Fact is stranger than fiction, about the double murder in Coleraine is worth a watch. Utterly bizarre,  cold & calculated to a point.

Finished the 4 episodes this evening, had my first lazy weekend since having Covid in February. Definitely worth a watch, Nesbitt plays central character very well, mental stuff but worth a watch. Can remember watching news reports, spotlight back in the day. Yer man was cold, calculated, almost got away with it.

Saw it years ago on ITV and thought it was very good. Your one's accent is a tad questionable but whole show gives a good insight into what some people in some of those bible thumping communities are like.

Bad bastards the pair of them.

Breeders on Sky is just so good, S3 a bit of a rollercoaster.

Thought the same. Said I'd endure it but it turned out superb.

Better Call Saul is having a really good season.
First real explicit cross-over into Breaking Bad in the last episode I watched.

Also just started watching Bosch. 2 episodes in and it seems really good.

This season of Better Call Saul has been brilliant. A real slow burner, but really enjoyable.

Bosch is the same shite weíve seen a hundred times before. It just suffers from the same problem as so many of these series, in that the lead actor implausibly ends up in the exact right place at the right time any time the plot needs to move forward, and when he is dropped into a tricky situation (usually just after moodily ignoring orders and going off grid with no access to comms) can somehow outwit, outfight and outshoot squadrons of trained elite killers.

All this shit was played to death 50 years ago by James Bond. I canít do it any more.

Jack Ryan and the Old Man other recent examples of shows Iíd to turn off for same reasons.
