I’ve watched it 3 times and the first time was probably a tick over 2 years ago. It isn’t even the football scenes that is the main selling point of the series for me, it is everything else tbh.If you like British cop series you'll enjoy LOD. Extremely intelligent plots that always keep you guessing.
FNL was terrific. Only watched it last year so had the joy of binge watching multiple season's in a row. One of those series where you get emotionally attached to the characters and leaves a big hole in your life when it's finished.
