Storyline

Researcher Dr. Stephen Ezard returns home to the UK after the reported death of his brother, Michael Ezard, only to find that his widow, Yasim Anwar, is harboring a wanted yet deathly ill illegal immigrant. Yasim, on the rebound from her husband's death, becomes very intimate with Stephen. But after the death of Yasim's immigrant friend, she disappears with the body, leaving more questions than answers. Stephen is then hired as a consultant and promoter of a new computer system, T.I.A. (Total Information Awareness). Using his expert computer skills, he secretly tracks down Yasim, unaware that he is a pawn in a government conspiracy. Written by enzechen357

Don't Bother
6 July 2011 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

TLE is without a doubt one of the most aggravating, annoying wastes of time in the history of television. No, its not an exaggeration. While the central theme being tackled is interesting and of some importance, the loss of privacy and a growing government's intrusion in the personal sphere of its people, everything in its execution is poor to a degree that is almost embarrassing. The problem is that the makers were so focused on preaching about their views on the matter they forgot the most important thing: making an entertaining show. From unlikable characters, starting with a main character that seems to lack even the most simple quality to a messy plot with ridiculous twists, nothing seems to work as intended. The actors do their best with the material but Benedict Cumberbatch seems to try his best to make his character even more unlikable than he already is and its almost impossible to feel anything for him. The three final episodes drag on and on, all sense of credibility goes out of the window and then we get a depressing, pointless ending which is really the final nail in the coffin. After watching the first two episodes try to imagine the worst possible way to end the show. Got it? Yeah that's how they ended it. Everything you just saw was just a pointless waste of time. Feels good, right? That's how this ending works. Now I actually agree with the views of the show, and the world it shows and warns about is very frightening indeed. I salute the writer's for their stance on this issues but most of all a show, even to pass its message must be entertaining and provide some sort of payoff to its viewers. TLE provides neither. Its unpleasant, dark and depressing with no closure. So why watch it? No reason at all.
