Line of Duty: Episode One
March 22, 2021 2:45 AM - Season 6, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Line of Duty (UK BBC 1) returned last for Series 6. Not familiar? It is a drama series following the investigations of AC-12, a controversial police anti-corruption unit.

If you need a reminder on the lead characters, you can find that here.

If you need to know what all those acronyms are about, this covers them.

The Guardian has some questions but will we get answers?

Does anybody know where this can be seen outside the UK without VPNs??

There's also an official podcast to accompany the show (which I am saving until I can see the episodes).

I thought the last series didn't deliver on all the plot points it raised. Nevertheless it is the only TV show I consider unmissable. Last night got off to a solid start.

The last series ultimately was about revealing the Big Baddie but since it wasn't the final series, it was bound to not happen.

In preparation for this new series I re-watched all previous seasons, and I learned that watching an episode twice is what works best for me. It is not a show I can watch while browsing or doing other stuff.

As an example, in one series a character says 3 words. Just three. The significance of those words did not become apparent until a later series and the first time I watched that episode I had missed it.

Like night_train it is unmissable for me.

Agreed. It recalls David Simon's admirable philosophy while making The Wire: "Fuck the casual viewer".

US viewers, Season 6 begins streaming on BritBox tomorrow (May 18)!!

A thought that popped into my head last night: does anyone else think Adrian Dunbar looks like George Washington?
