Nasty
11 April 2008 | by moviebrat2007See all my reviews

This series is one of the most unpleasant programmes I have ever watched. Masquerading behind some sort of phony hypocritical moral standpoint, it is just an excuse for people to get off on their nastiest tendencies. Shameful rubbish. I notice that the director was also responsible for a particularly bad drama about Princess Diana.Yuk! The audience is invited to empathise with a team of people whose official status has been blurred to make you think that they represent the forces of darkness in our secret services, and in our policing system. In fact they are simply silly and over-heated fantasies of a group of executives who are desperate to find an audience for a puerile form of right wing justification for violent retribution. I had to take a long shower after watching the first episode. I turned the second one off when I realised that it tread the same territory. It was very badly directed too.
