THE FALL (2013)

The Fall (I) (2013– )

Creator: Allan Cubitt

Cast: Gillian Anderson, Jamie Dornan, John Lynch

Here is a British series for you. I took a look and said to myself here it is this is the one.The Fall establishes a frightening, grimy and compellingly realistic scenario right from the beginning; after 2 women was found raped and murdered in their apartment,their bodies left in  posed tableaux, the Belfast police department reaches out to the  London-based Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Anderson) to help them out, to see of the murders are connected. Her supervisor on the cases, police captain Jim Burns (John Lynch), thinks that the most recent killing is possible that is related to the ex-fiancée. Gibson concludes that both murders were by the hands of the same person , and that the entire department needs to act quickly to prevent another tragedy from occurring.

What I like about this you see the murderer doing his thing and his everyday life. Than you see the detective at work and doing their thing. It is more realistic this way instead of closing the case in an hour show. You actually see how they investigate and the clues that lead to the killer. it is the cat and mouse game. The writer has done a nice job here. It has some unexpected turns here and there. Stella is a tough emotionless detective and has to deal with the rough tough detectives and personnel she is assigned too. There is a sensuous and cold side of Stella as you see in the second episode where she hooked up with one of the detective. Then there is Danielle Ferrington (played by Niamh McGrady), a tough officer who reveals that she’s gay. It is a fresh seres not like the American series as I called them the hollywood machine that are a bit unrealistic and solve the murder in an hour. Thank god for a refreshing look at it. It is as suspenseful as it should be but i might want to say that the cinematography is grippy but beautifully well film as well.

THE X-FILES (1993-2000)


Creators: Chris Carter.

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pilegli.

Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, Investigates paranormal cases that sometimes takes then into a government conspiracy Finding about aliens and such. They put their careers and their lives at risk . They solve by any means necessary. Terrific series from fox. It survived location and cast changes. They were tension between Scally (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) a little bit of sexual tension as the shows went on. It is my favorite shows of all time a great rides for 9 years. I love the cigarette smoking man (William B. Davis) always a step ahead of Scally and Mulder I loved that character He was also known as the cancer man .He also had multiple aliases, he was the antagonist. he is a key member in a government conspiracy only known as the Syndicate . Also Mulder believes that his sister has been taken by aliens. as the seasons went on Scally little by little became a believer and was more open to ideas of paranormal. Over all a great series.
