The British-French thriller TV show Liaison (Season 1).
Here is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this TV show:
Two agents — and former lovers — must work together to combat international cyberattacks threatening the United Kingdom while also confronting the buried secrets of their destructive relationship.
Creator: Virginie Brac

Here is how The IMDb describes this TV show:
“Liaison” is a contemporary thriller that explores how the mistakes of our past have the potential to destroy our future.
The series blends action with an unpredictable, multi-layered plot in which espionage and political intrigue play out against a story of passionate and enduring love.

I found this show by accident when I saw the cover for it on an online streaming video website.
I saw Eva Green on the cover, that alone made me click to see what this show was about, and then I watched episode 1 (Storm Warning).
Likewise, I was impressed by the quality of episode 1, Eva Green was good as usual, and at least three languages (French, English, and maybe Arabic?) were used in the first two episodes that I saw.
The opening credits and theme song are interesting, with a modern British twist at the end that reminds me of a theme song from another British TV show that I can not remember:
I followed and watched this show from there until it was finished.
I was surprised and impressed with how much of each of those three languages were used throughout this show, episode 4 (Carnage) was mostly in French, sadly it was my least favorite episode; it was conversation heavy and I had no subtitles, so that probably had a negative impact.
Some things that I did not like about this TV show include: how the investigation & those involved like DCI Hobbs were barely shown, how Alison Rowdy’s longtime boyfriend Albert Onwori was mostly a non-character & how he was treated as the show went on, how the show ended without closure or consequences for some characters, et cetera.
I still liked this show better than the critics et cetera, it seems, based on some of the ratings for this show that I have seen.
I would recommend watching it once.
