  • A great way to kick off a new series.

    Having never seen the original Spooks, I came into this show with zero expectations. Wow, what an exciting first show. The action was sharp and the characters are fun and lovable. The splashes of humour throughout are well placed -- I can tell they have a decent writing team behind this show. It is set in the not to distant future, which often results in a show being preachy about today's current events; however, I found the plot to be non-condescending and at times riveting. I did not entirely buy Charlie becoming the new leader, but it sets up an interesting dynamic for future episodes. I look forward to seeing what these talented young actors will offer us throughout the season.
