Every time I see the question that forms the title of this thread, my internal reply is as above.

Just sayin'
Admittedly Unforgotten S3 has recently finished but Killing Eve just began.

Then you should investigate. Killing Eve has already been on BBC America and the guardian has just reviewed it well.

Unforgotten, with current "can do no wrong" Nicola Walker just completed three successful seasons. I thought you had your finger on the pulse

Not on streaming platform that I know of yet in Canada but maybe it is somewhere.

Been watching Lodge 49 on AMC on Mondays. Its different but good.

Nifty. Never heard of that site. Seems to have a lot of options though.

It's an excellent site. Sometimes it needs a second click, uBlock Origin is a useful add-on for automatically closing any pop-up from the first click and no membership is needed.

Some of the links even have that nice 'go back a bit' feature that's on Netflix as well as subtitles/closed captions.
I watched all of Killing Eve on it while BBC America was showing it and it's only just started on BBC UK.. I must have posted about it more than half a dozen times by now, but usually as a link to a specific show, as I did this time, so you may have missed it.

Watched the first episode & will catch up with it at some point. I find Rob Stark a bit too dour but this show is getting rave reviews back in Blighty.

The Russian show, The Method (Netflix), is even better than I first thought. After two parts I wasn't sure but unusual crimes and unusual methods, coupled with some unorthodox treatment of the villains makes it worth it.
Plus, I think I'm in love with the elfin faced trainee.

Our own MagnumPI has a new series out soon. I must say, he scrubs up well!

Did you watch the final episode yesterday? Wouldn't surprise me if they made another series later next year.
