'the fall' is a stunning masterpiece of a police procedural and i'm vaguely annoyed i've only just got around to watching it. female protagonist (gillian anderson) trying to catch a man who murders women. doesn't sound revolutionary — but the series deals with rape culture, objectification, normalised violence against women and pervasive sexism in a way i've never really seen before.

highly recommend. s2 is about to start so never a bit time to watch it! 

Having a female protagonist (and other female officer of law enforcement) made it possible to articulate, through her, various ideas about male violence against women that seemed important to me. She sees nothing mysterious about what the killer is doing. It’s just misogyny – age-old male violence against women. She sees such violence as endemic in patriarchal societies.

- Allan Cubitt, creator & writer of ‘The Fall’

The leg up at the end tho.

I like the coach, putting his hands on his knees like, “Welp, that wasn’t it.”

i was almost like “oh man that sucks” and then her leg popped and i fucking lost it

That leg is killing me
