A wonderful series based on a group of friends who attend a weekly trivia competition. Their lives, their loves, their dramas. The writers who wrote this series are the same writers who created Outrageous Fortune.
Hope and Wire is a dramatized edition of what happened to a group of New Zealanders after the 2010 Christchurch earthquakes telling the "real story". They didn't need any extra drama, Christchurch survivors know that.
The story of disgraced lawyer Andrew Fraser's rise from a small time lawyer to successfully defending the most infamous criminals this country has ever seen, and his ultimate downfall and imprisonment for five years in maximum security.
I'm only 3 episodes into the series as I write this, but I feel the series is building in mystery and suspense nicely. I thought the first few episodes were a little slow, but I'm intrigued to see what's around the corner. It's a great script, with some fantastic actors. It's shot superbly too and looks fantastic (especially in HD).
I think the music score is brilliant. It's so atmospheric and spooky, and really helps build the tension throughout. The music is atmospheric and subtle.
All in all I think The Cult is turning out to be a fantastic thriller... I'll keep watching for now.
