Don't care for crime-of-the-week series, I prefer continuing story arcs with some sort of resolution at the end of a season. Swedish and British productions have typically been favorites. Initially I thought this one was one of the of-the-week varieties -- couldn't have been more wrong. Midway through episode 2 the "Spiral" title made sense. Don't make the same mistake I did and start watching this in the evening -- it's very difficult not to watch all the episodes. Very well done :-)


All TV shows should be this good.


I love Spiral but they leave loose ends all over the place. What happened to Niko or The Shark in Season 3? I'm just starting Season 4 so maybe those questions will be answered.


I want more!! and more great european television!


Clairement la meilleure série française jamais produite.


worth watching from the beginning, but seasons 2 and 3 are a little stronger than the first.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
