John Lambies Doos

Line of Duty.

I enjoyed it with the conclusion of so many story lines. So it wasn't all big drama but I found it quite effective with the opportunity to continue if needed.
Loved them jumping out the prison van on the OCG and the finding of the evidence box that the OCG used as leverage, linking to previous storylines as well as demise of Ryan.
Loved the occ health engagement being about support rather than demonisation and that it had been instigated by Ted in a positive way.
Liked the honesty of Ted and the conclusion of the John Corbett/his mum/ Ted triangle
Liked it was Buckles hiding in plain site and that none of the suggested plot outcomes I'd seen suggested him. Do i think he's the final part... Nah, he kept saying he passed on the messages so who is directing him??
Liked that Jimmy Nesbitt wasn't parachuted in and had no additional presence.
Liked the happy ending for Jo and Terry Boyle who had horrible life experiences through no fault of their own.
Liked Kate's return to AC12 and the resolution of differences between the three amigos.
Liked the prison guards getting their come uppance.
Liked that Chris and Chloe are good guys.. (so far..)
Liked that it's now in Carmichaels hands to decide how she progresses with the info Ted gave her - love her character.
Leaves open the institutionalised corruption aspects which can be found in so many organisations and liked the fact it unfortunately reflects current UK government shenanigans.

So all in all, not bad for 60mins entertainment and plenty openings for another series though equally happy if it stops there.
Drag storyline out for 6 episodes/series & rush multiple, weak, conclusions through in 60 mins? #meh

Started watching back through this again a couple of weeks ago as felt there was a lot of references made in series 6 that completely bypassed me / I'd forgotten about.

Currently about half way through season 5 and I'd forgotten how good a character John Corbett is. Probably my favourite character throughout the show.

Pretty much everything Stephen Graham touches turns to gold really

Saw that, if he's anywhere close to his portrayal of Al Capone in Boardwalk Empire we're in for a treat

Just started this, and sped through the first series in about three days.  Other than Martin Compston’s occasionally dodgy accent, it’s terrific stuff,

Just finished this after rattling through them all on iPlayer.  Maybe because I've watched them all non stop for the last few weeks, but I thought the quality dropped off dramatically in the last two series.  

The ending was shit.

I never watch TV series but enjoyed the clips Googlebox showed of this series so watched last nights. A resounding meh! Even from my limited knowledge it was underwhelming having buckles as H. Also in a non pervy way I was hoping Kate and Jo would get together 

So you watched the final episode of a TV series that has been running for nearly 10 years? And have the confidence/arrogance to come onto a thread about the show in order to give your opinion on it? 
 

Ive never seen Breaking Bad but I might just watch the last episode to get the jist, oblivious to any of the characters back stories or previous story lines, then actively search for people who do like Breaking Bad and tell them it’s ‘meh’. I’m sure my opinion will be held in high regard by them.
