I thought the Man in the high castle was on regular TV at some point early on.  I know there was this show, about what it would be like if the US had lost WWII... and the Japanese controlled part of  the US, while the Nazis controlled another part.  Is that the show?

I heard of Luther through the facebook page of LH....  he mentioned it and Idris Elba as being a good actor.  I'm watching it again, watched it last night....  and at one point  yes, it was surreal, I kept hearing that violin sounding so much like Mark Snow music, and  the masked guy was like a MLM character, etc...

That was @Earthnut @voidprime and myself discreetly hidden behind your sofa, playing those instruments.

LOL...seesthru is going to love your comment.  :scared_sofa:

So, who is playing what?  Did it at anytime have the female soprano?  If so, then that's me.  :like-that-when-I-got-here: 

You boys can fight over the violin.  :starwars:

Now I wonder what is the next great crime drama to watch or anything else I can recommend

I just finished the 6 part miniseries of "I Am The Night."

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7186588/

Quote

Inspired by true events, "I Am the Night" tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood's darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.

This was good, plus a little different then the usual crime show.

I watched I Am The Night too and also read up on the real life person who inspired the show.   There are a few differences between the show and the actual events  in her life

Sadly they do that, change it around, and then say it's from the book.  It was still good, but glad it wasn't more than 6 episodes.

Any word on when the next season of Luther will be aired?

      Hi! Curiosity brought me home! 
      It it seems like masks are a great way of protecting oneself from the COVID-19 Coronavirus by protecting others, and hopefully the follow suit. 
      But also, it could be a great way of sharing your fandom.
      I’m sad to see there aren’t masks to buy, but I thought a black mask with the white  ouroboros would be a good start. A partial ouroboros like on the masthead for M-TIWWA would be good too, especially if it had some series quotes like, THIS IS WHO WE ARE, THE TIME IS NEAR, THE TIME IS NOW, and others. 
      I checked the store and didnt see any there. Is anyone thinking of doing this?

      I just finished watching Season 3 of HBO's True Detective. I was absolutely hooked, the acting was really excellent and the atmosphere and storytelling were really compelling. This is definitely a series to be savoured late at night.
      Each season of True Detective is a stand-alone anthology with an ensemble cast, so you don't need to have seen the previous seasons. I love this format, very much like the brilliant Fargo, except in Fargo (which deserves its own thread) there are a few tie-ins, nods and references to previous seasons and the original Cohen Brothers film. The downside with the format is that when it's such a great series and you really get to like and feel for the characters, you get hooked and just want more.
      Anyhoo, I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for more crime drama with that certain MillenniumisticTM feel!
