I just binged this and did not expect to love it as much as I did. Great twists and every turn and the lead actor was incredible. I just hate how brits say “ma’am” like mom.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jorge. I hadn't heard of this before; I've just added it to my list. I look forward to watching it as soon as I finish The Haunting of Hill House.

If you liked Bodyguard and haven't seen Line of Duty I would highly recommend it. I also think Line of Duty is one of the best procedural shows that I have ever watched. Jed Mercurio who wrote the Bodyguard also wrote Line of Duty.  Four series with a total of 23 episodes

Short trailer that gives nothing away.

I think this was one of the best mini-series that I have ever seen.  The first episode was so outstanding -- the extended train scene in particular -- that I watched it in only two sittings, which is something I rarely do.

Richard Madden was excellent and had charisma to spare.  The entire cast was terrific.  If I had any quibble, it was around the identity of the traitor.  It seemed to me to come a little from nowhere, but bingeing has some definite disadvantages for me...the more I watch, the less likely I am to catch subtle clues.  My solution will be to re-watch it in about a month, when my wife is ready to watch it.

For anyone who enjoyed it even nearly as much as I did, I would also recommend London Spy, which starred Ben Whishaw.  It was also really good and had to me a pretty shocking, but credible, ending.

Loved it and did not see the ending coming.

I thought it was pretty lame that Billy Porter lost to him, actually.  His performance was heartbreaking and brilliant.

I dont really care about who won or deserved the award. I just think Billy Porter was the best dressed and Richard Madden is a hunk

Watch Pose. There's nothing lame about his performance at all and it was huge that he was nominated for so many reasons.

I watched it.  His character is tailor made for him.  He is fabulous in it.  But it is the same performance he has always given before.  Just now in a different medium.  Not anything worth of a nomination.  But he is fun to watch on the red carpet.
