So, I queued up The Fall to watch after I finished Broadchurch, but I had to stop after only two episodes. It sounded innocent enough at first. Senior investigating officer Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) tracks a serial killer (Jamie Dornan) following a string of murders in Belfast, North Ireland. The only problem is that it started getting way too creepy way too quickly for my liking.
I just watched “A Scandal in Belgravia,” the first episode of the new season, and I can’t say that I disagree with Paste reviewer Shane Ryan—too much. I’m finding that most of my “favorite shows on television” these days are coming from the BBC—Doctor Who, The IT Crowd, Sherlock, Torchwood. I have also recently discovered Merlin and am (slowly) working my way through the episodes on Netflix.
I was a little skeptical of a modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes canon, but I have to say I was more than impressed by the three (?!) episodes of season one, and I was immediately hooked.
