Finally got around to watching Ripper Street today. It starts out a bit slow and confusing, but then it just grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. I stopped halfway through the first episode to go tell the husband that he had no choice but to watch it, because it was ABSOLUTELY FRAKKING BRILLIANT.
Seriously.
DI Edmund Reid (middle of the pic) is steady, calm, dedicated to law and order, and a fucking genius. DS Bennet Drake (to the left) seems rough and crass, but he’s hiding a gentle side and secrets. The American army surgeon-turned-Pinkerton-turned… some guy who lives in a brothel (on the right) is just full of secrets, but he’s got a sense of honor and he’s just as clever as the DI.
Do whatever is necessary. Take hostages if you must. Watch this.
(Disclaimer: I’ve only seen the one episode. Now I’m waiting for the husband to catch up so we can watch the rest of them together.)

    I kept waiting for the moment where the series would grab me. I’ll give the second season another try.
