This Has Taken Over My Netflix Queue

It was a Netflix recommendation so I tried it … now I am addicted and I have three seasons, five dvds each, to get through. And it’s not just because my dad was a Maryland policeman.

    i had read in a review before i watched the series that he was british, so i knew–and actually you can kind of tell from the somewhat weird american accent he has that he’s not american. but i haven’t gotten to season 2 yet so i will look forward to the inside joke you mention. also one of the drug dealers is british, i don’t know the names yet, but he’s one of the biggies, i think he was killed off last season.
