I've just binged the full 7 seasons, 76 episodes, 57 hours. And every hour, superb.
This highly complex police drama from France is incredibly good. The plots are complex and tightly written. The production values increase with every year, and camera work is very good by season 3.
I love that the police and judges are often flawed, and make sometimes terrible mistakes. In particular, the lead, Caroline Proust, takes incredible stress and presents it on screen wonderfully. I also love how the writers provide redemption for the characters when they are broken or in danger, often through unexpected twists.
There are often amazing twists in the season plots, and each year is constantly fresh and new-feeling. It's extremely rare to see any plot event or dialogue that doesn't ring true.
This is extraordinary television. It's no wonder it's moving now into it's eighth season.
