Binge Better on Hulu – When her beloved son almost dies, a corrupt police detective has a painful moral awakening and decides to put right 20 years of wrongdoing.

Better is a new BBC crime drama series focusing on a police detective who has become mired in corruption but who wants to clear her conscience.

Leila Farzad – previously best known for playing Naomi Jones in Sky’s I Hate Suzie – plays the lead role of DI Lou Slack.

Some 19 years before the events portrayed in the series, Slack had become involved with up-and-coming criminal Col McHugh, with the two forging a complicated but mutually beneficial bond.

Slack rose up the career ladder thanks to McHugh, but has now concluded that she needs to redeem herself by bringing him down.

A corrupt police detective has a painful moral awakening and decides to put right 20 years of wrongdoing.

The show follows DI Lou Slack’s epic battle towards redemption by bringing down Col McHugh; the man she has come to love like a brother and the man she has helped place at the head of Leeds’ criminal underworld.

But while Col is a dangerous enemy to make, Lou’s biggest battle may yet be with herself.

19 years ago, when Lou was a young police officer at her lowest ebb and Col a low-ranking but ambitious newcomer to the Leeds underworld, their paths crossed, and they struck a deal that changed their lives forever.

The bargain allowed Col to become very rich and very powerful and Lou to turn around her failing career.

A complex but special bond between the pair was forged, and so began Lou’s gradual slide into corruption.

But now, when Lou’s family is brought to the brink of a tragedy, she must put right the wrongs that she has spent years rationalizing and excusing, to have a second chance at a new, better life.
