Netflix’s foreign series, however, rarely get promotion amidst all of the other American shows that have been produced. Although IndieWire has previously provided handy lists of foreign-language series a couple of times, including other imports, that is only a hint of all offerings available.

By now, you’ve already seen Brazil’s excellent dystopian series “3%” or the unforgettable “Chewing Gum” starring Michaela Coel, but what’s next? In an effort to continue helping viewers discover new or lesser-known foreign TV shows, we’ve compiled another list of those series worth bingeing below:
After the events of season two, Dci Tom Mathias (Richard Harrington) is on the hunt for Iwan Thomas (Geraint Morgan). When Thomas is found dead though, Mathias is soon under suspicion in an investigation that will discover a cover-up connected to an old case that threatens to create a rift with the whole team.
Season three of Hinterland is interesting because it brings in a conspiracy that goes right to the top, and connects to the past. While each of the four episodes has a case to be solved to keep things moving, the hunt for the killer of Iwan Thomas is an the on-going overall story arc.
The problem with the case of course is that it threatens to unravel the cover-up, which people don’t want to be revealed.
While much of the significance of Basil Dearden’s The Blue Lamp derives from its status as the first of the British Police films, in as much as it is entrenched in film history, it is also entrenched within British social history. Its identity is therefore a dual one, its cinematic and social roots that are intertwined reaching deep into the past.
Scripted by ex-Policeman T.E.B Clarke that lends the film a sense of authenticity the film captures a snapshot of the post-war angst of the destabilisation of the family and the rise of the young delinquent that saw an increase in violent crime. Together these two factors conspired to create a film that not only contributed a new genre to British cinema, but also reflected on the woes of post-war London. Sixty-six years on from its release, this social self-reflexivity of the society it

Following hot on the heels of their recent hit drama series Trapped and Follow The Money, Nordic Noir & Beyond are thrilled to announce the release of the second season of the Welsh detective drama Hinterland (Y Gwyll), coming to DVD on Monday 30th May (released in both English and Welsh versions). After a successful
Richard Harrington, intense, brooding star of Welsh noir Y Gwyll – or for those watching the bilingual detective drama in subtitles, Hinterland – experienced a profound blurring of fiction and reality while shooting the second series in Ceredigion in west Wales for what turned into an 11-month shoot, thanks to rewrites, rethinks and overruns. (The series returns this Sunday, 13 September, on Welsh-language channel S4C.) His character, the demon-plagued Dci Tom Mathias, who lives in a rickety caravan and jogs to forget, is plagued by depression, and Harrington found himself lost in the part to a worrying degree. “My relationship had broken down at home,” he explains, candidly. “My mother died,

If you're craving more veddy British crime solving, you don't have far to look. Here are some of the best series the BBC (and ITV) has to offer, with private detectives, psychiatrists, cops, spies, and forensic pathologists all cracking cases, catching criminals and drinking lots of tea.
1. "Sherlock Holmes" (1984-1994)
If it's more Sherlock you crave (and not just Mr. Cumberbatch), then you must see Jeremy Brett's intensely intellectual (and equally arrogant) period-appropriate take on the legendary detective. This Watson is also solid, especially in "The House of the Baskervilles.
Gist: A Welsh teenager will become the cool kid of the town if a deal is made with his new American neighbour (Emile Hirsch).
Production Co./Producers: Vox Pictures’ Pip Broughton, Adrian Bate.

Contains spoilers for Wolfblood series 3.
Still teaching ‘grown-up’ supernatural shows how it’s done is Cbbc’s exemplary Wolfblood, which yesterday concluded its third run in the UK.
Series three cleared a hurdle at which previous fantasy and sci-fi dramas have fallen by losing its lead character yet continuing to prosper. When Aimee Kelly (who played Maddy Smith) decided to move on after the end of series two, Wolfblood pulled off the smoothest change of personnel since Kirstie Alley joined Cheers, then kept on going from strength to strength.
Having carefully written its supporting cast from day one paid Wolfblood enormous dividends when it came to series three, and made the transition to a genuine ensemble piece look effortless (however it may have felt behind the scenes). Instead
TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.
Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September
British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”
Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars,
