  • Is it all downhill from here?

    I am biased against this episode because it is the one which introduces Jo. She irritates me enormously. Doey eyed blondes belong in Hollywood-land, not Spooks-dom. Please Kudos, get it right.

    There are several jump the shark moments which is a pity because Spooks should be better than that.

    Only high point is the comic moment between Fiona and Adam, "I love a man in uniform."

    All in all, a holiding episode. We watch while hoping that next week will be better.moreless
  • Personaly didnt like this episode thought it was a little dull and boring and not up to usual spooks standards

    I am a great lover of spooks, with me being with the military side however this episode didnt grip me like other episodes.

    I felt this episode was a little slow moving the story line wasnt too bad it is more believable than some of its plot lines, however reality isnt always the best way to provide entertainment.

    I didnt like they way that they are going to put the female journalist as one of the spooks, to join MI5 in real life takes a great deal of vetting to find the best candiate, however they managed to pick up some random journalist to join the "Brother Hood".

    Overall this episode wasnt the best that spooks usualy show however i feel its still one of the strongest programs on the bbc and hopefully this was just a blip in its usual greatness.moreless
