Babylon, Ep. 1.05: “Hackney Wick” continues an impressive back half

6 February 2015 3:39 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Babylon, Season 1: Episode 5 – “Hackney Wick”

Written by Jon Brown

Directed by Sally El Hosaini

Airs Thursday nights at 10 on SundanceTV

Following last week’s superb turn in the wake of Richard Miller’s departure, Babylon returns firing on all cylinders while finding new areas to explore and develop. The most notable of those areas is Liz’s push to convince Sharon she’s a viable candidate for Commissioner. This is Nicola Walker’s breakout episode for the series, as she nails every scene in a varied performance. Attracted by Liz’s mention of one of Sharon’s previous ideas, the shifts in her facial expression from hard and stoic to curious and excited provide a breadth of back story without having to delve into it with a bunch of exposition. While we’ve heard Charles talk about his relationship with Miller and how his past has made him ready for this moment, »

'Babylon' react: Strike while police publicity's hot

8 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In the last couple years SundanceTV has made a name for itself among the elite spelunkers who can find it on their cable package with its gallery of slow-moving, high-minded crime mysteries such as Top of the Lake and The Red Road. It's like if CBS went to the museum. The boutique network's latest import, Babylon, breaks the mold. It's a brash, wired urban police drama whose pilot was directed by executive producer Danny Boyle, the colorful, kinetic hand behind Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, and most recently Trance, a pixelated thriller that imagines total surveillance. That's the main preoccupation of Babylon, »

Babylon, Ep. 1.01: “Episode One” is a fresh take on the police series

8 January 2015 6:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Babylon, Season 1: Episode 1 – “Episode One”

Written by Jesse Armstrong

Directed by Jon S. Baird

Airs Thursday nights at 10 on SundanceTV

Coming off a fantastic summer miniseries in The Honourable Woman, SundanceTV has imported a British crime series co-created by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire). Unlike most series in the saturated the genre, however, Babylon is not a dark, gritty procedural or whodunnit but a refreshing satirical dramedy from a network that could use a bit of lightening up. After a collection of mostly excellent dramas, the relief in watching Babylon comes just as much from its interesting take on a police story as it does from the shift in tone in SundanceTV’s lineup.

Fans of The Thick of It (and In the Loop) will be pleased to learn that veteran writer Jesse Armstrong brings the same biting comedy from his work with Armando Iannucci to Babylon. The series follows Liz Garvey (Brit Marling, »

Sundance’s Babylon Is As Pleasurable As a Serious Show Can Be

8 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The cop drama Babylon is as purely pleasurable as a show can be while still being serious. Though this six-part SundanceTV series is credited to a bomb crew of talents — including writers and producers Robert Jones, Jesse Armstrong, and Sam Bain, and feature filmmaker Danny Boyle — it has a singular vision, albeit one that doesn’t necessarily come into focus in the pilot, which is mainly concerned with introducing the characters and their jobs. American indie-film up-and-comer Brit Marling (the writer and star of Another Earth and Sound of My Voice) plays the show’s lone Yank, Liz Garvey, who’s imported to the United Kingdom to serve as the London Police Department’s director of communications. She’s the audience surrogate, at least for the U.S. market, learning the lay of the land, putting out media fires, and bantering with flinty-eyed Police Commissioner Richard Miller (James Nesbitt), a scowling, »

Babylon Review: Danny Boyle’s Six-Episode Sundance Series Is Eerily Timely

7 January 2015 10:02 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With BabylonDanny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) has become the latest feature director to enter the realm of TV (though he will primarily be serving as the series' executive producer).  The London-based Babylon, which will air as part of the SundanceTV's original lineup (as a co-production with the British company Nightjack), has been branded as a "workplace satire," but throughout its six, hourlong episodes it becomes far more of a drama about the gap between reality and public perception in government, the police force, and the media.  Hit the jump for more. In the last few years, SundanceTV has distinguished itself by producing bold and often difficult original content.  Rectify, The Honorable WomanTop of the Lake -- each of these shows have been dark, dramatic entries to the television landscape.  In comparison, at first, Babylon looks like something different.  Though it deals with incidents of prison riot, a wrongful shooting »

Review: Danny Boyle's 'Babylon' is Startlingly Relevant, Rounded and...Funny?

7 January 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As the pipe continues to be primed for the 2015 Oscars, one point you'll hear over and over again is how topical the Martin Luther King Jr. biography "Selma" is given the recent racially-charged incidents in Missouri, New York and America on the whole. Indeed the film's peaceful message couldn't be coming at a better time, but, shockingly, there's a fictional tale far more pertinent to the discussion, though ineligible for the Academy Awards. Why? Because "Babylon" is a six-part television series. Co-created by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, "Babylon" tells the story of a fictional modern day police force that's lost the trust of its citizens. Much like similar departments across the United States, the London unit is facing serious PR problems after numerous reports regarding police misconduct, brutally and racism have brought into question the men behind the badge. Representing them at the top of the pyramid is Police Commissioner Richard Miller (James. »

Exclusive Babylon Sneak Peek: James Nesbitt’s Commissioner Miller Faces the Committee

7 January 2015 10:14 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you haven’t already heard, SundanceTV, which has given us great series, such as Rectify and Top of the Lake, is premiering a new show entitled Babylon tomorrow night at 10 p.m. The series, which comes from Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle and was one of our most anticipated new shows of 2015, is a satire of the UK police department and stars Brit Marling (Another Earth) as PR expert Liz Garvey, who is brought in to help improve the image of the London police force, led by James Nesbitt’s Commissioner Richard Miller. We’ve already been lucky enough to share with you a great interview with Nesbitt about his role in the series, but now we also have an exclusive clip from the Babylon series premiere. In the clip, Commissioner Miller faces great scrutiny from the committee, as Liz watches, hoping the commissioner will perform better under the pressure. »

TV Review: ‘Babylon’

7 January 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

What’s more harrowing than police work? Try dealing with spin from the public-relations quagmire that regularly surrounds it. As premises go, it’s hard to be much timelier than “Babylon,” which washes onto U.S. shores by way of England. Devoted to the pitfalls of running Scotland Yard, the six-part series arrives on SundanceTV with director Danny Boyle among its exec producers, yielding a scabrous, profane and darkly funny satire, ostensibly told from the perspective of the American assigned to help put out fires amid the tinderbox of big-city policing — including, before its over, the controversial shooting of a black teenager.

Brit Marling plays PR maven Liz Garvey, the wide-eyed Yank whose Ted talk caught the eye of Scotland Yard’s Chief Constable Richard Miller (James Nesbitt, sporting an even more forbidding scowl than he does on “The Missing”), the walking incarnation of thinly contained rage. Comparing the job to car maintenance, »
