Happy Valley is not your run-of-the-mill British crime drama. This BBC series follows Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) through her not-so-everyday life as a police sergeant dealing with the fall-out of personal tragedy and her problematic family. Happy Valley, created by Sally Wainwright, is a fascinating, engaging and at times heart wrenching story of womanhood and humanity -- dark, but with a surprising undercurrent of hope.

Seasons one and two, also available on Netflix, will be reviewed by Billie Doux, Heather, and Thomas Ijon Tichy.
