I want to recommend this TV show. But can’t. It’s too dark. Too weird.

And not quite coherent enough to want to continue to season 2.

I do like Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow: single mother, waitress, church organist, bookkeeper and Custer’s loyal right hand.

The two angels Fiore and DeBlanc are intriguing too.

The Night Manager – miniseries

Years ago I read John le Carré’s The Night Manager (1993)

It is his first post-Cold War novel, detailing an undercover operation to bring down a major international arms dealer. …

The Night Manager is a British-American television miniseries …

The six-part serial began broadcasting on BBC One on 21 February 2016. …

The series received widespread critical acclaim, with The Sun calling it “one of the greatest series of all time”. …

Reviewing Episode 1 for The Guardian, Archie Bland began by noting, “The Night Manager is as sexed up as television drama comes. In Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie it has bona fide international stars; in John le Carré’s source novel it has a pedigree of untouchable grandeur. The palette is as sumptuous as one of our hero Jonathan Pine’s beautiful hotels.”

Archie Panjabi as Kalinda Sharma is superb.

Did she win an Emmy? NO ... don't tell me. I'm only on Season 1.
Did Archie win an Emmy? NO … don’t tell me. I’m only on Season 1.

The plot lines are tight. Interesting. Entertaining.
