I loved this series.

I would've thought that it would be quite hard to understand as there is a lot of dialogue and little action.

Yes it's difficult to understand sometimes but I like how this series has turned. I reach the end, do you see the season 2? Is it good?

E06
Rust and Marty know more about Dora. She frequented a church that was called "church of renewal".
Private life : nothing is going between Marty and his wife Maggie who learns that her husband deceived her with a certain Lisa. Maggie leaves home with the children.
Rust and Marty are interested increasingly by Reggie Ledoux. They learn that he works at Iron Crusades motorcycle club in Texas that is linked to a drug network.
Rust decides to infiltrate a drug network. After some adventures, the two cops found Reggie Ledoux in a house in the countryside where he manufactures the drug. They stops him but they found two beaten and kidnapped children and one of the two is died of an overdose. Mad with rage Marty kills Ledoux. Rust decided to make up this scene to make it look a shootout that went wrong.
Case closed, Ledoux is the culprit for their superior who wants to close the investigation and reward Marty with a promotion.
In 2012 Rust and Marty continue to declare that it was a shootout.

I've watched Season 2. It has nothing to do with series 1 - they are standalone series. I enjoyed it but I know some people hoped for the same as the first and it isn't it's very different.

New Serie !
Everyone advised me to watch House of cards. So I do it!
Episode 1 :
The first scene plants the decor. Direct we understand that Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) is an ambitious man who has no time to lose.
We are in 2013 and the Democrats have won the presidential election. Frank is the leader of the Democratic Parliamentary Group in the House of Representatives and helped his side to win in exchange for being appointed Secretary of State. But here, nothing goes as planned, another man was appointed in his place. He decided, with the support of his wife to make every effort to take revenge and to make his place. He allied himself with a reporter that nobody wants but which is promising and with a member of his party in the turbulent life.
First maneuver: he discloses to the reporter a draft law on education at the journalist who publishes it.
What will be next?

Episode 2:

Goal achieved: the Minister of Education is forced to resign a result a leakage of the bill he had written and asks to Frank to replace him in his task, ironically ... Frank commits six young to write a new proposal in a very short time.
He attacks after the one who has taken its place: Kern, who is also approached for be foreign minister. He brings out a university newspaper dating from the time when Kern was the editor. And the editorial praised Palestine and insult Israel,
  But today Kern is a supporter of Israel. He is humiliated on live TV news and doesn't know how to cope. Finally he must renounce his post. Frank then makes the rumor via Zoe (the journalist) that Catherine Durant will be appointed in his place in the ministry. Why ? To be continued in the next episode !
On his side the wife of Frank dismisses people in her think tank Clean Water, She appears to be a woman without scruples, but I still can't identify what it is her role and who she is really ..

Episode 3 :
A young woman has been killed in a car accident after texting while driving, apparently distracted by a peach water tower that Frank had build in his hometown of Gaffney, South Carolina so Frank must go there. His rival encourages the parents to sue Frank. Frank begins negotiations with them. He tries to talk to them and in church he makes a speech about his father and tells the pain that he had at his death and so people feel pain for him (in reality he hated his father .. It is manipulation). So, he wins once again the game because the parents renounce to judicial proceeding!
On her side Claire meets Gillian Cole, an activist for WorldWell, to employ her international expertise. This woman is sick and Claire wants to help her but it's strange..
