This ones a stonking great action series.



At least locally this is on Netflix. It arrived with a fair bit of hype from the UK. The review I read preparatory to sitting down for a viewing said that it was more action packed than 24. That's not quite true. The action in 24 is a lot more hyperbolic and frequent than here but this has some terrific, extended bomb defusal scenes that take a good proportion of the running time hitting notes of tension 24 can only dream of.

It's not just action though. It's super strong on a character. Our lead is a very unreliable, fucked up sort. You never quite know what his motives are. Is he going to kill her himself? Is he going to shag her (of course he does!)? Or is he just going to kill himself?

Anyway, hugely recommended.
