Don't care for crime-of-the-week series, I prefer continuing story arcs with some sort of resolution at the end of a season. Swedish and British productions have typically been favorites. Initially I thought this one was one of the of-the-week varieties -- couldn't have been more wrong. Midway through episode 2 the "Spiral" title made sense.
Don't make the same mistake I did and start watching this in the evening -- it's very difficult not to watch all the episodes. Very well done :-)
All TV shows should be this good.
I love Spiral but they leave loose ends all over the place. What happened to Niko or The Shark in Season 3? I'm just starting Season 4 so maybe those questions will be answered.
I want more!! and more great european television!
Clairement la meilleure série française jamais produite.
worth watching from the beginning, but seasons 2 and 3 are a little stronger than the first.
