Wallander (2008-2010)


This show is proof that Kenneth Branagh could get me to watch almost anything. As my parents will tell you, I loath crime shows with a passion. Anytime a crime show is on, I leave the room. But this show is the one exception. I have seen all 6 episodes. Like a few other TV shows, I said "well, I'll at least watch the first episode". But I kind of felt compelled to watch another episode since there were two on the disc that I got from Netflix. So then I just ended up watching all 6 episodes. The episodes are long though. Each episode is about an hour and a half.

*intersting tidbit: One of Branagh's co-stars in "Wallander" is Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the 2011 summer blockbuster "Thor", which Kenneth Branagh directed*
