BBC films. Acorn TV posts. I binge.
It’s as simple as that scenario to keep me glued to my recliner. My latest binge, when I should be writing and editing my books, Line of Duty – now streaming on Acorn TV.
The show is from a different slant about DS Steve Arnott (a short man who has a lot to prove), who is transferred to the police anti-corruption unit after a dastardly stint in another. Series one focuses on the officer of the year, who tells enough lies to wrap himself up in a sticky spider’s web with no way out.
It’s well done, well acted, just the right amount of suspense, not too boring that you fast forward, and keeps you guessing and entertained until a surprising and inconclusive ending. I’m afraid to start season two because I will probably waste the entire day getting nothing done.
As usual, British television does it again. The show apparently started in 2012 and is now in season five in 2017. I suppose that tells you it is good enough not to cancel.
Check it out if you’re a crime-crazy nut that would rather watch the corruption from inside the force, rather than the force fighting the corruption outside.
UPDATE: As a side note, I’ve watched Season 2 and Season 3, and they continue to be extremely engagement, to say the least. Great show! Keeps you guessing.
