    Is this all becoming a little too much?
    We have loved these drama's in this home, but they take up a lot of time and take an awful lot of concentration (not withstanding I often have to catch them up because I often work late).
    We are currently watching Salamander and Lifeline. Tabula Rasa started at the weekend, which as I was at work we have passed on for now,.The Bridge, which is unmissable, is back on Friday.
    Potentially, we have 4 separate dramas to watch at the moment.

    Is anyone else starting to find them all a little too much? Is anyone managing to keep up with them all? They have become neverending and I can't keep up.

    What I find irritating is Walter telling us all about the show. Have you seen 'mafiosa'? Well worth it

    I think I've only watched the French ones, partly to improve my listening skills. I think Les Hommes de l'Ombre (or "Spin" in its lazy English translation) and the first series of Les Revenants (The Returned) were my favourites.

    Spin was good, it was like a French Borgen. I also liked No Limit, which was about a guy who was in a black ops organisation and his sister's a cop and they sometimes have overlapping cases, and there are lots of funny, farcical elements, but the action stuff is good too because it's a Luc Besson series. It's not superlative drama like Spin or Spiral (Engrenages) on BBC Four's subtitled Saturdays, but it's entertainingly silly.

    Mrs Miggins There's been a slight cheese accident

    I've just finished Night and Day - a Catalan series - which I thought was excellent.

    I like the way non-English language dramas demand my full attention. I can't sit arseing about on my phone at the same time.

    I'll try some of the others you guys mention. I think Salamander was on BBC 4 a couple of years ago ig it's Flemish and starts with a nank robbery....loved that if it's the same one.

    I binged The Cleaning Lady this week - an Argentinian series about a woman who gets drawn into cleaning up various messes from the local mob. Pretty good. 8/10.

    I started another Argentinian offering - Pure Evil - but I'm sick of it so probably won't finish it.
