Spiral - terrific series!
on 22 July 2010
I have yet to see the DVD of the series, but both my wife and watched it avidly when it was shown on TV. We very much enjoyed the first series (and bought it on DVD when it came out) and this second series did not disappoint!
The acting is excellent, and the plotting is tight, complex and engrossing. Watching the decent of Josephine Carlson (defence lawyer)into corruption is in many ways sad, as she seemed basically decent in the first series, but her desperation for money in many ways makes it a little inevitable!
Very highly recommended, and we can't wait for a (hopefully) third series! Very much carries the flag for more European crime dramas to be shown on British TV. It also shows that having subtitles (rather than dubbing) is not only not a barrier to the show, but helps to get the "flavour" of the characters much better than dubbing ever could. More please!
