This review contains spoilers.
After an opening hour that chucked a kilo of cooked plot-spaghetti at several walls to see what stuck, Hard Sun settled on an identity in episode two. It’s going to be The X-Files, but instead of conspiracy aliens investigated by Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, it’s conspiracy truthers investigated by Danny Dyer and Annie Lennox.
There’s the potential for countless case offshoots from the central government cover-up.
