I watched all 3 seasons of The Fall.

 

Its great and I love that it had a definite ending. Gillian Anderson’s really quite annoying tho IMO.

The Night Of and True Detective are 8 episodes but still very good series.

 

If Brooker11 doesn't mind some older series, I'd recommend:

 

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (Alec Guinness version)

Smiley's People (same)

Edge Of Darkness

State Of Play

Ultraviolet

Agree, The Fall is a brilliant series which I saw a while back before Netflix got it.

 

It was one of those series that had me hooked after the first one and I knew it was going to be good binging.

Any genre really.

What am I thinking? Chernobyl! Best thing I've watched this year.

Unforgotten. Not Chernobyl but a very solid UK crime drama.

I've read some reviews on this since you mentioned it, sounds well worth a watch.

 

Hopefully will tune in for season 1 this evening- think Netflix has it.

'Full Custom Garage' (Pluto TV - you tube etc) binged seasons 1,2,3,4 & 6 

Ian Roussel talented custom car / bike / trike builder.

I needed some inspiration to get me back in't yard.

In Yankee land, customizing is not only Big Business its an acceptable Way of life for both young and old.

Despite our foray into customizing back in the 60's, 70's and 80's we let Europe impose laws and stifle a lot of that freedom to alter vehicles. 

 

Keep safe, binge responsibly.

Avoid Electric vehicles.

Zero Hour (2013 TV series)

 

Strange one this,

but, me and Her That Should Be Obeyed totally enjoyed all the twist, turns and final outcome.

 

Bit Dan Brown with all the 'Clue finding' and James Herbert's 'Spear'.

 

Slated and pulled after only three episodes shown, chucked from one network to another in 2013 then taken up by an Australian network in 2015.

 

The premise is the safe keeping of the 'Cross of Jesus' rescued away from the invasion of German troops in WW2 and spirited away with clues to its new whereabouts kept in twelve mysterious (very elaborate) clocks spread all about the world.

Lots of action, good Christians, radical believers to the end of time being a good thing, Doppelgangers,  good Nazi's (?) people who aren't who you thing they are (in fact there's a lot of that going on throughout). 

The plot has holes in it of course but still worth a binge.

Well filmed, lots of twists & turns and relatively good acting.   

 

Enjoy.

Des. Pretty much as advertised. David tennent was excellent, rest of the cast - particularly jason Watkins- were all great as well. Well paced and the sound wasn't an issue either.
