I’ve caught up on Hinterland.
I was a bit late on series 3 of this so binged on it the other night.
The usual, really, but none the worse. An interesting underlying thread, sure to develop, beneath a couple of good story lines. West Wales gloom and plenty of death.
As a former resident of the area there were some things that irked, among them being the tendency of poilce officers attending investigations and incidents at the hotel in Devils Bridge seeming to always arrive by the Cwmystwyth road which goes in the complete opposite direction to the police station in Aberystwyth. Actually, everywhere they go when they leave Aberystwyth police station appears to involve a long drive along a single-track road with passing places. You’d think every road in the area is single-track across rolling hills.
I watched all of Clique, which I found very entertaining despite numerous areas of complete preposterousness.
The very idea of 1st year female students being recruited to a dodgy bank by a professor whose brother happened to be the CEO of said bank was ludicrous. Getting past that the fact that all of the said students appeared to be able to dress in designer frocks, consume unlimited quantities of expensive drugs and booze and not bother about actually attending courses was just a bit suspect.
The convoluted plot, when it unravelled, was pretty good and the twist of having got to the bottom of it all but then actually not, was a Very Good Indeed touch.
Catching up, also belatedly, on Line Of Duty with a bit of reluctance. Some of the concluding stuff in the last series was just stoopid, in my view, but overall I gave it a pass. This looks like they’ve tightened up on things for the better.
Line of Duty seems to be getting a positive response here, by and large. What of the other two I mentioned? Any thoughts?
