Cinemascope: The Fall (Season 1)

Cinemascope is a 2014 blog addition where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2013. What got my attention about this series is that Gillian Anderson (aka Scully of X-Files) stars. Sold.

Plot line: A psychological thriller that examines the lives of two hunters. One is a serial killer who stalks his victims in and around Belfast and the other is a talented female Detective Superintendent from the MET who is brought in to catch him.

This is really good TV people. It is a UK show, so the pacing is not like you'd expect if you watch American thrillers. This is quite a disturbing show, so be warned, However, the acting is fantastic, and I was sucked into the story immediately. Season 1 is only 5 episodes long, so get the DVD, make some popcorn, or better yet a stiff drink, and settle in.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a TV series worth watching.

I somehow missed this show. Archie Panjabi is also an amazing actress. I've seen her in the Good Wife. Will have to seek this one out. Thanks for this new section to your blog. Love it.
