'Slow Horses'

Just great.

Based on Mick Herron's "Slough House" novels, of which there are eight:

all of which I've read: they're even better than the TV series.

I wrote about the first of the books, "Slow Horses," early last year.

Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas lead a wonderful cast none of whom I'd ever seen before nor heard of but no matter.

Frequent reference to "the dogs" — aka the MI5 security force — in each of the six episodes will make old Shakespeareans smile:

Lagniappe: Mick Jagger co-wrote and performs the theme song.

But wait — there's more!

Season 2 has already been filmed and it's slated for release near the end of this year.

You could look it up.

w00t!

Another BoJ recommendation that I will be taking to heart. I’ve seen the AppleTV+ series advertised, but didn’t realize that there were books behind it all.

Have we spoken about Severance at all ( also on AppleTV+)? IMHO, It’s the second best series on that service, behind For All Mankind.
