We first discovered the BBC series The Fall on Netflix last autumn, and were thrilled to find a new show until we realized the whole season was only five episodes - easily devoured in two or three days. Season two released on Netflix last Friday, and we got through all six episodes over the weekend. The series is a fascinating and dark story, about a London cop, played by Gillian Anderson (who is bidialectal and speaks the Queen's English like a native, having spending part of her childhood in the UK), sent to Belfast to track down a serial killer of women, played by Jamie Dornan. Dornan, soon to be seen as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, honed his S&M skills as the sexually motivated murderer. While season two lacks some of season one's intensity, it's still a thoroughly engrossing cat and mouse game.
