It along with the sopranos is the greatest tv show ever produced - great storylines and acting. Every series is brilliant - pretty much any who watches it all the way through tends to agree

Don't listen to these crankadanks - sounds like none of them have a clue about what quality groundbreaking tv shows are all about

Superb TV. Up there with the best, undoubtedly. I look forward to rewatching them all again someday.

Exactly, it's like the Americans have caught onto the Bill twenty years too late and re-hashed their own cops and robber show. Except like all these American re-makes it's so sanitised and soulless.

DCI Burnside would have sorted the whole drugs thing out & had the bad guys behind bars within 6 episodes.



Never had to resort to gratuitous nudity to keep the viewers interested either ;D

Just downloadded a couple of episodes Tob and i now hate you even more.

What a load of old tedious horse shit.

Wtf would Americans know about drugs and crime anyway? it's not like "Baltimore" is as rough as the mean streets of Sun Hill.
