Wasn't there a Broadchurch thread?  I watched season 2 and 3.  I think 2 was better but I liked the two leads enough that I wanted more so it led me to Spies Of Warsaw.  4 episodes - I enjoyed it but I'm still trying to figure out if the climactic operation was part of the plot throughout all the episodes or just tacked on to the end of E4.

stumbled across this yesterday: the detectorists. definitely wistful and subtle. think its on netflix.

This "wistful, subtle comedy" (Guardian, UK) was selected by the New York Times and the Hollywood Reporter as one of 2016's best shows. Winner of the BAFTA Award for best comedy, the series follows the eccentric members of the Danebury Metal Detecting Club as they search for treasure in the English countryside. Written and directed by star Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Detectorists also features outstanding performances by Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Rachael Stirling (The Bletchley Circle), and Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones).

watched two more netflix series over the long weekend, the soderbergh produced western, godless and another margaret atwood adaptation, alias grace. the second was more engrossing but both entertaining. upcoming, curious bout the marvelous mrs maisel out in a couple of days on amazon then season 2 of the crown and the errol morris docudrama wormwood, both on netflix. does tv happen on tv anymore?
