    I binge watched the other series in readiness for this one as I missed them first time round.

    Was absolutely hooked but these first two episodes have been the worst of the lot.

    The actors are good though, even if you don't think they're good actors

    Take a look.

    I always think when I go from binge watching something to watching week to week it always feels a lot slower and drawn out.

    Season 6 episode 4

    All I can say is

    Mother of God!!!!.

    That was probably one of the best episodes in all 6 series.

    I defy anyone to call that one slow. That one crackled along pretty well all the way through, and I thought the acting was excellent.

    What happened?

    Well Ted went to.......NO that would spoil it

    Ok you know that bent cop, Ryan Pilkington well he.. Ooops that would spoil it as well.

    Lets try again. There was a character from one of the earlier series and they had spoken to...... See that would be another spoiler!

    All I can say is that you can't miss a second.

    And yes Ted did say Bent Coppers and Mother Of God (in separate scenes)m but you will have to watch it to see when and in what context.

    As I suggested earlier in this thread, this series has turned out to be a slow burner. Thought it was much better last week but this week's episode just exploded and the real Ted turned up. I think all concerns that this was a series too far are thankfully well wide of the mark.

The BBC have plugged this enormously but it's poor, like so much of the stuff on there. 150 to watch the news !
    I'm relieved to read that because I think it's dreadful. Wooden acting, Dunbar using phrases that an Irish farmhand might use (my wife is irish) and does anybody actually think the police use expressions like chis, rather than informant or one of the other every day expressions meaning the same thing!

    It's just so unreal. The whole dialogue is just a long cliche-ridden of quick fire repostes. Nobody speaks like that, unless it's a daytime USA crime drama, which this is trying to emulate. The plot is absurd as well, full of 'holes'. Let's be honest getting 4 blokes with no criminal records to stage an armed robbery in which someone is killed, just to delay getting to a stake-out is so ridiculous it's laughable.
    Sorry, but for me it's unrealistic dross..

    I think the acting in it is really good, the brummie guy who got locked up was excellent I thought.

    I don't get why anyone would watch something that they dislike that much, seems madness to me.

    The queen's gambit was about as unrealistic as you can get but still good, you even held it up as evidence that line of duty wasn't good.

    Quite agree. That's why I've stopped watching it.

    You and Monkfish only took 6 seasons to work it out too!

    The enjoyable thing that keeps the viewer hooked is trying to work out what's going on.
    The script, dialogue and staged conversations are a bit much at times, but I do enjoy it.

    24 Hours in Police Custody is on tonight for something more realistic.

    OMG. Line of Duty is a paradise for acronym lovers. CHIS, AFO, ARV, ARU, MIT, TA, UCO to name but a few. WTF.

    I though the first two episodes were poor, last week's was much better and this week's even better again. Apart from the ridiculous ambush scene they seem to like! 'Mother of God'!!

    Woman's intuition , and wearing of a good mac and hat makes the difference between the blurred lines and truth of policing

    Mate of mine said he enjoyed the film Ghost but it was it a bit far fetched
