This british spy action TV show deserves more attention than it got.
This mini-series tells you a story about a spy whose name is Samantha (Melissa George). She works on private intellegence agency named “Byzantium”. So forget about world-saving missions in 007 style. It’s more about local and detailed spy business with very limited resources. I don’t want to speak about main plot and other spoiler-stuff. All you need to know is that this show always entertains their viewers in different ways. Various characters, mysteries from the past and “someone is a mole” game. In one moment you think “so, and that’s all?” and right after that all turns upside down.
Short-list of good and bad:
+ Melissa George! She’s a very beautiful woman.
+ Good and smart action.
+ Interesting main plot.
+ Mysteries! Secrets!
– All these movements in house sometimes looks very silly.
Final words: if you looking for a good action TV series with espionage theme this show is definitely for you. Just remember that is action, not a drama.
And by the way, there will be spin-off about Sam Hunter in the future. Be ready!
