I take it you haven't seen series three...............................
Same goes for me, also. I know that this has been shown already on BBC-4 but does anyone know if there are plans to repeat it?

I think I've just started watching it Is there a thread for 3? I love that woman!!! What happens? She doesn't come a cropper does she? Does she swap sides? I can't wait, it's tooo good. I love the characters, they're so ...French! Like weird gothic gargoyles


But I really wish the subtitles were expressed more like the original French way of saying things.

As usual, with so many French releases, the French DVDs don't have English subtitles. I saw an ad in today's Independent for a film called 'Polisse' which looks promising (it has Karole Rocher from Braquo!) to be released to cinemas on Friday. The DVD came out in France earlier in the year. Hopefully we'll see it in a few months.
I've only been able to follow the series I've seen on tv5 by having enough grasp of written French to get the subs. It's worth it in some cases having to read them but not so in others.

Gloating?! I thought you hadn't seen this S2 before either - totally lost now. Nobody's discussing 2 because most people round here have probs seen it before - the 'usual suspects' in the Euro drama threads anyway.

My username? I just use that TLP thing in quite a few places - originally it was 'cause I used to be a fan of the Lostprophets (the band).

naw the bit about Euro DS posters - "the 'usual suspects' in the Euro drama threads" is it a small select group who watch Euro-dunnits?

I'll google TLP and educate myself.

Oh riiiiight. Well yeah it started off as just a handful of us on here who watched the Euro subbed shows - this is back when Forbrydelsen 1 was on. The group has expanded a fair bit though, with the increasing popularity of these shows, but you tend to still recognise most of the names of the posters who watch them.

I think most have seen it already...I have been looking for the thread as well ...I haven't seen Spiral before if that's any help

Just to be rebellious and random, I have also started a thread within Eurovision as it would be good to have a general hang out thread for those who watch euro dramas well...they ARE eurovision aren't they?

I think it's a great idea to have a thread for general Euro chit chat. for all us Euro drama DS'ers. Imo it'll be handy to have somewhere to go with all the off topic stuff.

It might not be everyone's cup of tea but it'll be like home from home for me.

Does that mean we aren't allowed to go off topic in the dedicated threads?

I think some FMs will struggle with that.

course not BK

I was finding it hard to keep up with the cross chatter in the smaller Euro threads so having one place to go to catch up with the general chit chat and links seems a good idea to me.

Series 4 starts in France on Canal Plus next Monday, 3 September - the first two episodes back to back.

Here is the resume of Episode 1 translated approximately (not a spoiler)

Capt. Laure Berthaud and her group the DPJ discovers the corpse of a student mauled by a roadside bomb. The lawyer Josephine Karlsson defends Moussa Koné, who's been an undocumented resident in France for ten years and who is threatened with expulsion. These two cases are found to be linked via a network of citizen protest opposed to immigration policy. For Capt. Berthaud it's a particularly turbulent period: a new divisional commissioner arrives and she is the subject of an investigation

If you want to see the trailer for yourself go to

I'm curious but why do you go on message boards? You appear to have less than zero interest in anyone but yourself so what do you get out of it?
The tone in this particular thread was established by your accusatory posting. You’ve no-one but yourself to blame for the way it’s gone. I’m more than happy to engage in debate, serious or jocular with people who don’t see their every post as an opportunity to attack or pick holes in others messages.

If you’re that keen on verification and unwilling to do the work yourself I suggest you employ a factchecker in future as it seems of vital importance to you that posts on a telly forum on t’internet come with footnotes.

Oh, and FYI - Spiral 4 not released on DVD on July 23rd 2012. As I said it wouldn’t be.

The Engrenages Facebook page has just posted:

'SPIRAL season 4 will be broadcasted in september in France on CANAL+, and few weeks after on BBC 4!'
That would mean BBC4 running Spiral alongside Mentalbaldo (airing until the end of November, God help us....). It seems unlikely as they’ve shown they want to spread their first-run imports out one at a time. Borgen 2 is promised for Wintertime so depending on how they define that date-wise they could be looking to squeeze Spiral in after IM and before Borgen. I personally wouldn’t mind them twinning up the imports as you couldn’t pay me to watch Montalbano but with BBC4 ever more cash-strapped it would be unusual for them to double-up in this way.

Trailer for Spiral 4 available. I think it is genuine. Itls from the Canal+ website. The teasers are quite funny as well.

Usual caveats apply - slightly spoilerish

Presumably her actions in Season 3 have caught the eye of the Inspection générale des services (IGS), the French version of Internal Affairs
