Review: Engrenages (Spiral) 2x6

Spiral 2x6

In the UK: Sunday 18th October, 10.15pm, BBC4. Available on the iPlayer

Tension mounts on Engrenages as the police close in on Aziz, we discover that French domestic violence laws need some work, and that France's witness protection programme needs even more work (because it doesn't have one).

Not that you'd be getting all that tension necessarily from the subtitles - which need work, too. Spoilers and more after the break.

Problematically, season three of 30 Rock had way too many unfunny story arcs.

Going into season four, the question is have Tina Fey and co noticed this, dropped the plots and gone for the funny?

Almost.

Tabula Rasa

In the US: Monday 19th October 2009
In the UK: Looks like February now

Ah, if only all Heroes episodes could be this good. While not entirely faultless, Tabula Rasa had everything that made season one so good: decent characterisation, a good script, some really cool uses of powers and some actual heartwarming moments - as well as, praise the Lord, a decent cliffhanger.

More after the jump.
