Inside Man

Inside Man on Netflix /

Cast: David Tennant, Stanley Tucci, Dolly Wells, Lydia West, and more

What it's about: Inside Man is another BBC original released on Netflix internationally. Not to be confused with the Spike Lee movie of the same name, Inside Man tells the story of Jefferson Grieff (Tucci), who is due to be executed for the murder of his wife. He also is quite good at solving unexplainable cases. The twisted tale follows Grieff, a journalist, a vicar, and a tutor who get involved in a terrible misunderstanding that leads to a kidnapping and worse.

Why you should watch: Fool Me Once is a series that features a lot of moving parts. For most of the series, viewers have no idea how the pieces of the puzzle fit together. That's similar to Inside Man, although, in this series, viewers do know how everything connects. We get to watch as characters make difficult decisions and try to live with their choices.

Of the other picks on the list, Inside Man features the most high-profile and well-known actors in David Tennant and Stanley Tucci. It's probably the most different in that there's not really that law enforcement element that there is in Fool Me Once and other shows on the list.
