Welcome back to the Friday Open Thread, where we talk about shows that if they happened in real life suddenly wouldn’t be so cool.

This week I’ve been enjoying the return of two of my favourite shows; Channel Four’s No Offence which sees a very dysfunctional Manchester police command hunting down a killer each season, and Death In Paradise on BBC 1 which is a very laid back affair following a detective in a fictional British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. Despite their subject matter both are quite fun-filled and laid back affairs which is always a nice thing than the more serious affairs such as Silent Witness or the increasingly off-the-rails like Sherlock.

This weekend is likely to be hectic, with a return to normality after the Winter Break and all the not fun things that brings about needing to do.

So are there any shows returning that you’re looking forward to? Do you watch any recent crime dramas? How was your New Years? Answer any of those or anything at all below as usual.
