I guess when it comes down to it my favourite type of Movie or TV program/mini-series/series would be a good Mystery. There is quite a contrast in the stuff produced in Britain and America. I tend to like the Classic material by British people like Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, P.D. James, John Le Carré and Americans like Dashiell Hammett, Mickey Spillane and Raymond Chandler. I find that for some reason as a general rule the quality of Mysteries is higher in British ones for the TV stuff and American for the Movies. Of course there are bad examples of both. For any of you who watch both British and American mysteries which do you prefer and what are your favourites?
