    Anyone watched these series?

    I am on episode 5 of Safe, about a missing girl and just watched the Stranger about a missing wife.

    Both set in the UK.

    Really enjoying both series. Jennifer Saunders is in The Stranger, in a non comic role.

    I am not watching more Netflix than normal TV. Great to see these series that are normally only found on BBC or ITV.

    Great cast and acting in both series.

    I have watched SAFE last year and thought it was very entertaining.
    THE STRANGER is on my to-watch-list. Maybe you should also watch WHAT/IF, it's also about manipulation, shocking plot twists and dirty secrets.
    And DEAD TO ME, that's a real gem.

    Last night I watched 2 episodes of THE STRANGER and I must say I'm not very impressed. It looks like SAFE meets BROADCHURCH, I mean, literally.
    Nude pics on the internet (how very 2009), boring dialogue, lots of scene enhanching (soundtrack/slow-motion), but nothing interesting comes from the characters themselves.
    It looks terribly cliché, imho.
