Review this tv show
Oct 25, 2018As a Brit, utterly confused by this show and its popularity. It's not a patch on Mercurio's Earlier work with Line Of Duty being uniformly excellent. It goes from po-faced to farcical, with frustratingly stupid character arcs and daft situations. It's like Homeland season one, without any genuine drama.

It boasts terrific performances, unpredictable twists, and a stack of fanfic-favorite tropes (if the series’ title has you thinking of Whitney Houston, you’re frankly on the right track) executed with polish and flair. Though the thread of tension crackling at the show’s center doesn’t quite make it all the way through to the end, the journey is still enough of a roller coaster to make it well worth the ride.
American viewers may not grasp all the subtleties of British government bureaucracy, but the cast of well-drawn characters--Anjli Mohindra is a standout as Nadia, the would-be suicide bomber--make Bodyguard compulsively watchable.
