Did You Know?


This has been one of Sky 1's most successful dramas, even more than Fortitude. See more »


The main character is continually addressed as "detective", which is par for the course in the USA, but not in the UK. On the British Isles, police officers are addressed by rank, with the "detective" part dropped and just Constable, Sergeant, Inspector etc. being used. See more »

So far, so good!
25 January 2016 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

SPOILER: So far - so good.

Having only watched the first episode, it's difficult to write a sensible review.

So far so good, though. The first episode moves swiftly along and introduces a pretty good plot with some interesting characters. The normally annoying James Nesbitt seems to have matured into a good looking (and better) actor these days.

It's unusual to have such an icon (Lee) doing his thing in somewhere outside the USA. But so far, the London locales work well, even if the accents aren't always easy to understand.

For older people like me - who judge movies and TV by how annoying it is - you are in for a pleasant surprise.

It's almost not annoying at all.

Best of all - nobody cried. (That's how you can tell it's not an American TV program.)

So, based on the first episode only, it's a winner. If that changes in the future, I'll update this review.

UPDATE: OK, just finished the second episode. The 'blub' count is up to 3. Yes, the writers found good reasons for 3 women to start blubbing before the end of the second episode.

It looks like this is another IROBOT series, where everything is crammed in to the first episode and the remainder is just people in the entertainment business shamelessly urinating in your face.

Will be interesting to see how many people burst into tears next week - stay tuned... I think I'm gonna be one of them!

After THREE episodes...

The most shameless, overused and lazy cliché in history has been dragged out of mothballs in an effort to lift this awful rubbish - the cop has an ex-wife who's a lawyer and guess what? Yes, you did guess correctly, she's assigned the very case that puts her opposite the 'Lucky Man! Brilliant writing - who comes up with these inventive twists? Ha ha!

This week it's ME that's crying.

After FOUR episodes...

This is now just bloody stupid. I'm done.
