The 2011 Series Mania festival ended, we will talk soon about some series presented, including the excellent British miniserie “Luther” which has closed the week.
Successful festival, we will retain a small imperfection: the absence of a second projection of the same serie that requires a choice to make on what we want to see.
But the richness of selection and its enlargement to countries less represented on television (Australia, China, South Korea, Israel, etc.) make us wish for a season 3 as soon as possible.
