The Eddy: Episodes 5 - 8.

The final four episodes of this fine Netflix series maintained the pace of the previous four: slow - slow - quick - quick - whoosh! The actual music wasn't quite so prevalent but there was enough.

I'm not going to give away any spoilers regarding the plot suffice to say that the continued complexities of the various characters' lives kept me glued to the screen.

This is presented as Series 1 and the final episode left it open for a further series - I hope so.

If you haven't got Netflix, and I hadn't before The Eddy came along, then it's worth signing up for just to watch this series alone. A basic package costs £5.99 per month (cancel any time) so you've nothing to lose. It will be cheaper than waiting for the DVD to come out which it must surely do.
