Kinda crazy
29 March 2016 | by ewan_carmichaelSee all my reviews

If you imagine a Christopher Brookmyre novel, one of the crazy ones, dramatised by the League of Gentlemen, then are somewhere close to Stag. A bit larger than life in places, and there are a few parts of the plot where things don't quite stack up.

Smart, stylish, quirky and enjoyable. Not a comedy in the conventional sense. Not your usual horror, or crime programme, or drama either.

Some great characterisation. Some of the truly unlikable people change in your estimation as the series progresses. And the ending was a big surprise.

Well worth a watch.
