I just read a synopsis on it (I do not have cable or satellite so I do not always hear about new shows) and it sounds interesting.  I also want to check out the Killing.
Kosmo also approves of The Bridge, I think.

The Killing is a really frustrating show. It does alot of things "right" as far as cinematography and decent acting but the show is horrifically paced. They take a story that was originally done in 10 episodes in Denmark or wherever and flush it out to 2 12-episode seasons by turning the entire thing into a huge stream of non-sequitor red herrings EVERY EPISODE and then finally cap the entire thing off with an out-of-left field new ending that strains credulity to say the least. I recall internet rage from alot of places towards the first season finale. By the end of season 2, I literally did not care who killed Rosie.

Has anyone watched the new Fargo series? I've heard from a one person that it's good.
I'd rate it merely okay. The Americans and The Bridge would be way ahead of it on my "what is FX doing right" scale.

The Bridge was very well done. The early seasons of Justified were good, season 2 especially. it's quality tapered off.

Fargo is good, but has too much filler. Billy Bob Thornton is very good in it.

The Fall from the UK was excellent and I always enjoy MI-5 aka spooks in the UK.

I went completely out of my comfort zone and gave Penny Dreadful a two episode tryout and while I absolutely hated it, it seems up your alley if you have Showtime, престижний Мисливець на відьом.

I think you have HBO since you watch True Detective. If you haven't seen In Treatment, Carnivale, Big Love or Deadwood, they're all available OnDemand/HBOGo.

Let's not forget Six Feet Under, the best show in the history of TV.

I think SG-1 was the best show of all time.

The internet lists a similar term, sabrage, which means to open a champagne bottle with a saber.

Sabrage is an anglicization of the original French study of "le saberage."

Why would anyone want to be a master of that, no matter the Anglicization of the spelling?

That is probably one of the most useless things to be a master of in these modern times.

Do we though? 

I spend my summers gallivanting around the Chesapeake on a 37 foot 1966 CrisCraft.

And you've never once came across a scenario where it would be apropos to open a bottle of champagne via sabre? Wow.
