I was just goofing around
7 November 2009 | by (Namibia) – See all my reviews

on IMDb, -and I had just seen some Andromeda episodes and I had nothing to watch so I looked up the actors and I found The Guard which had just begun airing, followed the show since and I much enjoy it. The Guard feels "real" for lack of another word, the drama is usually high tension and the interpersonal banter is just great writing. I hope they make more of this. Specifically I was following comedian Gordon Michael Woolvett for his on-screen presence and charm, while a regular his character does not have the most screen time, -his character is in a wheel chair and I think he's selling it well. There's a certain moodiness over the show that I enjoy, the feelings are as large as the landscape as they say and the landscape sure is magnificent.
