Good captivating series
30 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

For all of those that want quick erratic thrill, tune in to ABC or NBC or CBS...foxtel made a brilliant political thriller! What you might perceive as slow, I perceive as a steady pace where the stakes are high and the tension never lets go! Just what a thriller should be! I've never been a fan of shock and awe when it comes to these types of series; that's a give away of poor writing and storytelling.. You keep it tight, you keep it real...and that is the hallmark of a great show!
