Well, look what we have here... I figured it'd be just a matter of time before someone uploaded this... and, sure enough, here it is - episode 1 of that new Chiwetel Ejiofor BBC crime series, The Shadow Line , which made its TV debut on BBC 2, in the UK, last week Thursday!

The series is not available for audiences outside the UK - not even on the BBC's website - but you can thank YouTube user "m4r71jn" for taking the time to get the first episode online for the rest of the world to watch.

I've written about this new series a few times already, so I won't rehash. Click HERE to catch up. Reviews of episode 1, as I posted last Friday, weren't stellar. But you can find out for yourself by watching the episode, embedded below, divided into 6 parts, before it disappears:

    It's aight. Only Eccleston's character makes me want to see the next episode. And typical that the black male lead has a white female love interest... just as I suspected they would. Luther was much better than this.

    I just watched this. I thought it was pretty good. Interesting take by having both the cops AND the crooks investigating the same murder. With this and "Luther", it looks like the BBC is killin' them with Black Actors leading crime dramas. Now if only the U.S. can follow suit...

    I'm guessing this stream will not last for long if it's just Youtube user m4r71jn uploading it.

    BBC should just figure out a streaming solution to their shows outside of the US.
