Warning very big spoilers for Spooks.
Big Spoilers, I did warn you . . .
Argh Adam’s dead! Sob, sob, sob. I did realise that this new series was his last but to kill him off straight away, well not literally straight away, they did give him one last chance to be incredibly noble, saving a group of women and children from a massive car bomb by driving the bomb laden car away and getting out of the car just a little to late.
This series is promising to look just as good as the last and at least Hermione Norris is back as the chilling kick ass Ros, if Ros and James Bond where ever to find themselves on opposing sides I’d know who’d I’d be placing my money on and it isn’t Bond! And how they resolved last season’s ending, oooh, now I was convinced she was dead.
Ooh and the Russians are the baddies this time, well it can’t be the Americans all the time (Any cousins across the pond reading this, how many times is a British character cast as the bad guy in a Hollywood movie?)
Ooh and as for E4′s Dead Set, now I wasn’t sure whether I’d like this, I’m not a Big Brother fan but it’s not really about that, it’s just a really interesting scenario to set a zombie mini series in, in true classic British 28 Days Later style. It’s eviction night but zombies have gate crashed the leaving party, brilliant ‘behind the scenes’ stuff with an obnoxious producer and coffee running lackeys plus some really dense housemates. Davina gets top marks for most ‘stylishly’ shot death. Very good stuff and I don’t normally do horror but there’s something about British horror that gives me just the right level of hide behind the cushion thrills!
You can presumably catch up with Spooks and Dead Set on their respective channels (BBC and E4) websites.
