    The Fall is probably the most underrated series i know about.
    Of course, the story itself is rather simple but the acting and production are very well made. It's a pleasure to watch.

    The fact that it reminds you of Dexter is not good promotion for the show mind you. Dexter's downfall in the last season is TV history. The only good season, worth one's time is season 5 if i remember correctly.

    A lot of good series out there, sadly not all of them on Netflix. I would recommend The Wire, The Leftovers and Twin peaks (90's)
    The Fall reminded me of Dexter because the story was told from perspectives of serial killer and investigation team. Intersecting storylines are always suspenseful.

    Story-wise, the first two seasons were excellent. But I didn't like how season 3 ended. Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger, and gave me high hopes for season 3. I was disappointed. I feel like they rushed to end it, and instead of taking the time to develop the story they just took the easy route.

    In that way, it is also similar to Dexter's shitty season 8. When I recommend Dexter to people these days, I always tell them not to watch the last season. I liked all seasons except the third and sixth. Seasons 4 and 5 are my favorites. I liked performances of the dude who played "Surprise Motherfucker" and Yvonne Strahovski's who played Hannah McKay.

    If you know similar shows, please recommend.

    Good you did. Yes I watched it all. Kept watching and waiting for it to become interesting, yet it kept sinking until I found myself doing something else while it was running in the background. You missed nothing, trust me. Because there is literally nothing to miss. There is no story to start with. Just a boring context where a bunch of boring characters are put together, and then nothing else. If I was in jail and had nothing else to watch, I still wouldn't watch it. Yeah, that much boring, lol.

    Speaking of Dexter's 4th & 5th, the actor who takes credit for these shows is hands down John Lithgow. The man's craft is stellar.
    As far as the genre goes, there's Bron/Broen (of course the Danish/Swedish not the US version), The Killing, Hannibal & i think Dark fits into that category quite easily even though it's about much more.

    Other good shows i saw last year were Taboo, Homecoming and The Night Of. All recommendable with a clear conscience.

    Peaky is an odd show.. i never thought i would like it, but once you get into it (watch more than just 5 minutes), you get HOOKED!!! i told my boss about it before i left on vacation last summer, i came back, he had finished all 4 seasons!

    If you like breaking bad you must watch Better Call Saul. In fact I think Better Call Saul is better in a way

    see i did watch Better Call Saul, and didnt like it at all! Breaking Bad was so good, probably my expectations were skewed.
