For this week’s pick I have got a new French TV show called, Witnesses (2014). If you’re a fan of all the other Euro-cop TV shows like, The Bridge, The Killing, Braquo, Spiral, then you should probably give this one a look. The other shows I mentioned as well are all fantastic, so if you haven’t seen any of those then you should probably give those ones a look as well
As always, I don’t want to give away any of the plot,but I will tell you that this is one of the strangest fictional cases that I have ever seen in a TV show…it’s pretty fucking creepy and very well written. We also a have another strong female lead, who has the male partner, just like The Killing and The Bridge
I am not that far into the show but I have seen enough to know that its going to be something pretty awesome, I am going to take a wild guess and say that we will be seeing a an American or British remake pretty soon…I wouldn’t be surprised if there was one already made.
Here is the official plot from IMDB
Set in a small coastal village in France, this is a quiet thriller of crime and dark secrets. The opening sequence takes place in a house just put out for sale. In it, the discovery of what appears to be the dead family in the house, implicates the former chief-of-police to the plot. The now-retired chief-of-police, having made a lot of enemies in his past career, is recovering from a car crash in which his wife was killed and he himself barely survived.
Witnesses is available on Netflix U.S
Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for reading
