spiral / engrenages

Got the season 1/2 DVDs of this for christmas. I know you all like cop shows and the wire. This isn’t the wire, but it is at least written and directed by people who act like they’ve at least heard of the wire. It’s extremely grotty and french (this means even more grotty).

This christmas, give the gift of child prostitution and judicial corruption to someone you love.

Netflix suggested this to me and I am just starting season 4. I know I am missing out on a whole dimension of the screenplay because I do not know French, but I have been sucked in nonetheless. It sits in the shades of gray aspect of police work and the legal system with no shinny rainbows at the end. I love it.
