@MaVolta - When I was watching one episode, a woman officer got out of her car to check something, and was suddenly overrun by an army of rats .. I couldn't watch that!

I've been watching The Tunnel series from the beginning, and yes, it has a very dark side. It has been a very strange mystery series, even weird at times, and has also had some very violent scenes that I couldn't watch. But there has also been an undercurrent of humor that rides below the surface. Since this is the last season, I do want to see how it all ends. 

 

The two investigators are practically polar opposites. Karl is a fairly straight forward, laid back, character on the Brit side. On the French side, Elise has been a much more complex character that seems to battle her own demons. I think Elise has gone through the entire series without a change of expression. I mean, she is stone faced, which contributes to some of the humor involved; amazing job by the actress Clemence Poesy.

@nyadrn - I could answer that question a lot better, if I actually managed to stay awake thru an entire episode! 😉

 

I can't put my finger on what the difference is, but I find that the Brit/European crime dramas are a little "darker", than American series like the various "Law & Order" shows. Not sure if it's the characters, the production style, or the story lines themselves. Any thoughts?

Are any of you watching "The Tunnel"; in the NY Metro area it's broadcast Sunday nights after Masterpiece Theater? This is season 3:

 

"The Tunnel: Vengeance" is set amidst post-Brexit hysteria, an escalating refugee crisis and the increasing threat of terror occasioned by disenfranchised, exiled souls on whom society has turned its back. Karl and Elise take on a toxic and terrifying folie à deux whose mutual defining quality is an existential deathwish. When the question posed by the couple – what is a life worth? – is directed straight back at Karl, he is forced to confront an utterly impossible choice."

 

I totally missed the first 2 seasons, but with this starting at 10:30 PM, I generally fall asleep shortly into each episode! 😞


No never heard of it.  I get up pretty early and don't ususually watch later programs.  Do you like it?
