Season 1 was good, Season 2 is better
10 May 2019 | by aguynameddrewSee all my reviews

If you like the thriller / spy / action genre i think you'll like this show.

Lots of characters to root for and lots to wish ill upon, international espionage, entangled allegiances and competing self interest.

Walter Goggins enters the scene as a primary character in Season 2 and gives a great performance.

Fans of Game of Thrones may recognize Gendry but Joe Dempsie (who plays Harry Clarke) shows he's got range. Karima McAdams plays another primary character from Season 1, Leyla Toumi, and her intensity echos in every scene she's in.

The rest of the supporting cast are thoroughly solid.

You can totally watch Season 2 even if you haven't seen Season 1.
