In an earlier post I gave my reaction to the first two episodes of the French police procedural series Spiral (Engrenage).
It was a bit mixed: while I enjoyed the charactisation of Laure Berthaud and the urban noir feel, I was somewhat put off by the grisly autopsy scenes.
And although I said at the end of the post I would probably continue watching, I didn’t return the following Saturday (something came up, the hamster needed cleaning out, you know how it is…). And that was that – I never quite managed to catch up.
Now that the series has finished, my question to Spiral-watchers is:
- Have I make a grave mistake (pardonnez the pun)?
- Should I give Spiral another go?
- If you think I should have kept watching, should I start at series 1 and work my way through in order, or just dive in with series 3?
