The best TV shows of so far Show all These kinds of programmes have a tendency to fetishise toughness, lingering on assault courses and weaponry.
But, inevitably, as he scrawls out his campaigning brainwaves on a whiteboard, there is a touch of that deductive maverick Sherlock in his portrayal of this scruffy, balding political saboteur. The humans are a pretty exotic bunch too, judging by some of the lines they come out with. And the saintly and regal Danny Dyer stands as its finest ambassador. Thanks, all. And it surely is the first big-budget superhero tale more indebted to Wes Anderson than to Stan Lee. That way we grow intrigued, and we care.
Jade Goody, British Reality Television Star, Dies at 27 - The New York Times
And so we find ourselves sitting next to Henshall in his prominently featured Volvo V70 estate, sharing his thoughts, intercepting suspects and being driven off the road by unidentified enemies. Or Alayned, perhaps. There were the allegations, the out-of-court settlements, the arrest, the trial and not-guilty verdict. The twist is that a family who returns to Surrey from a holiday touring around France discover a Syrian refugee stuffed in the back of their SUV. Derry Girls, returning for a triumphant and exuberant second run, proves that humour, dark or otherwise, can be quarried from even the most unlikely of locations.
The best compliment to Waller-Bridge and her cast is that they find fresh clothes in which to dress these ancient monsters. OK, not much competition, but still Most spectacular of all is the sequence of a glacier collapsing into the ocean, where 75m tons of ice being sloughed off in less than minutes. But at times Our Planet feels a little unfocused. Our Planet is more of a greatest-hits parade, with overblown orchestral soundtrack and ponderous intonation.
As well as being gripping entertainment, Line of Duty has become an effective examination of the relationship between the state and the individual. The shadowy government forces are elected; the organised crime gangs are fuelled by the drug trade. The police are there to save us from ourselves but can only do it if they are subjected to constant scrutiny. There are few actors you could trust with so much screen time, especially with such a pared back and naturalistic script.

No man working in Britain today can drink a pint with more pathos. And while the melancholy tone may not be for everyone, fans of the book will surely be sated. The dominant one as we continue our quest into the s and beyond, will be Vivienne, or Viv, Rook, played brilliantly by Emma Thompson.
As a bit of a long-term Emma-sceptic I was actually startled by how good she is in the role of the epitome of everything she has spent her life hating and campaigning against, for Viv is a horrifically nasty businessperson turned populist politician with the most terrifying of views.
First time around she was toying with a more worthy adversary, but why now? Polastri, by contrast, is frayed around the edges, a terrible wife to her husband Nico Owen McDonnell and an even worse intelligence agent to her boss Carolyn Martens Fiona Shaw. Its key dynamic, between father and children, means that it is limited in the amount that can actually happen without risking the magic.
The writers, led by the creator Jesse Armstrong, who also gave us Peep Show, weave just-about-plausible and sympathetic characters from a web of insults and backstabbing, and tight editing and camerawork ratchets up tension from a slow-moving plot. The focus on these intricate dances means that after a while we begin to question the idea of objective truth, as well as the facts at hand.
I have no idea if it is a realistic depiction of detective work, but it makes for gripping drama. The foul language; the visceral hatred; the unbearable tensions; the violence being inflicted on ancient institutions and this poor old knackered country by the Tories, as if with chainsaws and zombie knives — it was like watching my first Saw movie. Helen Mirren playing an empress, altogether madder, badder and more dangerous to shag. Better costumes, too. Modern Love is adapted from a New York Times column it also spawned a hit podcast and is as much a valentine to a fantasia vision of Manhattan as it is a dissection of the human heart.
