The Fall TV series, originally a BBC production but now streaming on Netflix, is pretty great. It follows Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) as she tracks a serial killer in Dublin, Ireland. It’s an interesting local since not only is Gibson’s job harder for being an outsider brought in to try and unravel a murder no one else has been able to solve but she’s got to do it in a city divided along some very serious sectarian lines.

Plus there’s the killer, played by Jamie Dornan, who you know is the killer from the very fist scene. You’re with him as he plans, stalks and carries out his crimes, which is disturbing enough. What’s more disturbing is the guy leads a seemingly normal life with a wife and two kids.
