I've not yet seen Cold Pursuit, though I am aware of it. I have seen the original: "In Order of Disappearance" which I did rather like, mainly as it's a good fit with the other Scandinavian type things I watch.

I expected you to respond but not t hat quick.

Just moved into S4. My favourite is still the break-in one that was played purely for laughs but Zanzibar and The Bill were good.

Surprisingly it was on 6 episodes on UK TV and the episode summary on Amazon Prime says that and so does Wikipedia has it as 6 episodes but somehow Amazon Prime Canada stretched it out to 8 episodes.

We're also watching Deadwater Fell on Acorn which is good. Four episodes in total and 1 uploaded per week and there are 3 there now.

I guess I'm late to the game on this one, but I'm just wrapping up first season of Narcos. Fascinating story! Basically, it's a dramatization of the famous Colombian Drug Lord Pablo Escobar (at least, that's the focus of season 1, set in 1980s). I just happened to be traveling to Bogota, Colombia in the 80s on business, and saw with my own eyes the Palace of Justice with rocket holes in it! I worked on that project for several years and met many Colombians, both in Colombia and the US. Had I not had first-hand experience of the situation, I would have said 'Narcos' was way too exaggerated ... but at least season 1 was not ! Quite a tale. Looking forward to subsequent seasons (no spoilers please )
