First aired: 2012
When I reviewed season one of this US reimagining of the BBC series I was seriously impressed. You see the BBC pilot was astounding but the first BBC season wasn’t quite as good. The dry, Withnail like humour had been lost and whilst it was still funny it wasn’t quite the same.
Season on season the UK series has become poorer and poorer. Deus ex machina, plot holes, plot contrivances and pantomime acting/humour began to overtake the better aspects. Season 5, which I am watching as I review this, is not looking like being too much better (though the Alex character might pull the season out of the mire). So the drama driven, plot tight US series was welcome.
