If we're talking about the same French show, and I'm sure we are, then I've given it a lot of points. It's as good as any drama I've seen.

Please do.

The same goes for anyone else who has been lurking on the threads without committing. Scrounge together a list off the top of your head!

I was going to vote for that, but I couldn't think of more than six or seven other things to make a list.

Our Friends In The North is fantastic. Buy the DVD boxset.

I was thinking about it but there are a number of Amaxon reviews mentioning the poor quality of the recordings and one that said 2 out of 3 discs didn't play.

Anyway, I found Episode 1 on Youtube and it was absolutely gripping drama but I thought the 4 main characters were cast too old: none of them came across as 18/19 year olds soon to go to or having done one year at uni (McKee and Eccleston) or about to fly the coop (Craig and Strong). I'll stick with it, if I can find other episodes, for the socio-political content even though I find Mary (Gina McKee) insufferably smug.
Excellent as always to see the late great Peter Vaughan amongst the cast.

Edit- Apart from the above about the casting, it's great. I'm up to Episode 4. Brilliant.
