The Night Manager: The Best of British-American Television

So you’ve finished binge-watching all your favourite TV shows, and starting to wonder what’s next. Being in the Golden Age of television, our standards are high. We want great characters, excitement, that stubborn itch to start the next episode even though its 1am on a Tuesday.  Well, have I got a treat for you!

The Night Manager, a six-part mini series based on the John le Carré novel and directed by Susanne Bier, is the perfect spy tale. Released in the UK on BBC One in February, with a US release date on AMC later this month, this exhilarating thriller stars Multiple Emmy nominee Hugh Laurie (from House) as Richard Roper, a deliciously evil arms dealer, and Tom Hiddleston as Jonathan Pine, a Night Manager turned undercover British agent. Extravagant locations, witty dialogue, complex characters and beautiful cinematography make this series a self-contained masterpiece. Sorry folks, it doesn’t look like they’ll be a second season, but just think of it as an amazing six-hour long spy movie and thank the TV gods (i.e. the BBC, AMC and The Ink Factory) for making it!
