The Fall Rises

Nowadays there is a lot of competition among TV and filmmakers. Netflix and Amazon appear to be winning over more and more viewers from the 4 major American television networks. One of the problems for American series shows is that they never seem to know when to call it quits. Some shows keep dragging out the story-line until audiences get bored with the redundancy. Why do series from the BBC, Australia, Ireland, and Canada seem to know how to produce tightly written shows year after year?
I recently stumbled upon a gem from BBC Ireland called The Fall. It is a compact 17-show series that stars Gillian Anderson (from The X-Files' fame.) I know that this series has come and gone, but for those of you who missed out...it's not too late to jump aboard.
The story is about a police "huntress" who is brought to Belfast, from the London MET, to hunt for a serial "hunter" of women. The pacing is methodical. The suspense is earned by great scripts and acting.
Unlike most American shows, the key plot points are not described in detail repeatedly; since the producers don't think their audiences can add 2 plus 2 and get 4. The stars of this series spend a lot of time in deep thought before they speak. One might find this irritating; however, so much if left to one's imagination while they deliberate. Remember the "eyes are the window to the soul."
Season 3 (the final season) is now in our catalog with not to long of a waiting list. Season's 1 and 2 are ready on the shelves to be checked out. The ADULT thriller is dark and disturbing, but worth the watch.
