Storyline

British newscaster Walter Blunt comes to Los Angeles, intent on conquering the world of American cable TV. Through the platform of a nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Unfortunately, Blunt is constantly harassed by interfering network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, and his numerous ex-wives and children. Blunt must now deal with the fallout from his well-intended but misguided actions, both on and off the air, with only an alcoholic manservant at his side.

Brilliant, hilarious & fascinating!
2 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Okay, I think I summed up my thoughts on Blunt Talk! LOL! I am so glad I gave this one a chance and stuck with it through a few eps. It's not easy sometimes, I cringed a lot at first. But it really got a toehold and is now making me laugh so much, it hurts. It also brings up some seriously important issues and handles them with thoughtful humor and compassion. I'm definitely hooked and swoon pretty much every time Patrick hits the screen, which is most of the time. :-) The supporting cast is a real standout with some highly interesting character 'stories', too. And it's beyond refreshing to be entertained by some REAL actors who aren't fresh out of drama school or modeling college. Having a lively mix of pretty much every age group, minus children who can rarely act anyway, is my cup of tea.
