Re: Slow Horses

I didn't like the toxic words in the first episode but things evolved to the point where some care in the relationships is obvious.

Anyway, I like it.  Finished season one, soon to start on season two.

Re: Slow Horses

I've watched the first couple episodes of season 3.  Episode 3 is available and I may (or may not) wait until episode 4 airs then watch them back to back.

Anyway, good show and here's to the next episode.

Re: Slow Horses

Someone sent a report (possibly accidentally) and added this:

Excellent show. They actually want to use where I work as a filming location next year. Not sure if I'll be able to see any of the cast, but who knows.

Cool! I've never been in that situation, but I hope you'll get to see some of the action.

I sometimes drive past a small shop that has been used for a TV show, and while I'm not interested in the show, for some reason I enjoy knowing what happened there. smile

Re: Slow Horses

It's one of the best shows on TV so far.

Re: Slow Horses

just finshed the first season. A great show esp. since very few at the moment

Re: Slow Horses

I watched S1 and thought it was great and I'm up to EP5 now in S2 and this is also great. I have noticed that there are quite a few books related to Slough House so maybe this wont be the last series either

Re: Slow Horses

any one here remember the very old Callan spook series from the 1960's with Edward Woodward. Similar rather back street type  of spooks. He had a very grubby & smelly but memorable sidekick....called lonely...

Re: Slow Horses

This is easily one of my favorite shows in a while. There's nothing about it I don't love. I look forward to this every week and am super bummed when it's over. It's been renewed for season four (hooray!).

Gary Oldman stated this will be his last role but will happily play it until the show ends.

Re: Slow Horses

The only problem with Slow Horses is that time and time again the rejects prove them selves to be better than the quality agents-  so why are they still rejects? This was especially true of series 3 and the last 2 episodes. Highlights were

Spoiler

Duffy getting his head caved in and jug head a bullet in the back of his head

I would like to know where the last two episodes were filmed

Re: Slow Horses

Disappointed with final E6 of S3. Too much guns, machine and otherwise, reminded me of American shows. Too little witty dialogue.

Re: Slow Horses

Finished season 2. Great show! smile

I'm happy that season 3 is waiting for me. big_smile

Re: Slow Horses

It really is the best UK show in years! Compared to this quality, https://next-episode.net/doctor-who is like dog poop where kids threw confetti on top.

Re: Slow Horses

If you like Slow Horses you might like to investigate the very old TV series "Callan" with Edward Woodward.

I can't believe what's happening with Dr. Who. I started watching in the late '70s; my first Doctor was Tom Baker and I've been watching ever since. I gave the new specials a chance but had to stop watching halfway through the Christmas episode. I'm done with it and that disappoints me.

On topic though, I'm excited there's (at least) another season of Slow Horses. I watched an interview with Gary Oldman and he said as soon as he read the first script, he was 100% in. The link starts the interview at the Slow Horses section if you're interested.

Re: Slow Horses

The bit in 3.6 where

Ho drove the bus into the house and it was so stupid that Lamb glitched out for a few seconds before the insult

was priceless. Show's still consistently the best thing around. Wish other shows could cover as much ground in 6 normal sized episodes.

Re: Slow Horses

Absolute best show. I could watch new seasons of this thing forever

Re: Slow Horses

the show should have "smelly vision"

Just about anybody should enjoy it I'd think. I guess some folks wouldn't want their kids watching it but just think of all the fun they'd have learning interesting new ways to swear and insult their peers.

Ja, hands down one of the best shows of the last few years... once you got into it. It took a few episodes for me as the first episode really didn't managed to pull me in. Had to restart twice or three times. But then... loved every second after that. Well, not every... but most. Thoughtful, witty, rough, honest, fun even with some action sprinkled in...

Yeah! They are regularly killing off enough of the cast to always keep things fresh. lol

Re: Slow Horses

Cant believe they (Wil Smith?) kept up the amazing quality :-)

My personal rating:
S01 = 4.5★
S02 = 5★
S03 = 5★

Really look forward to S04 and if they are able to manage another 5★ :-)
Watched and rated over 100 Shows, and there are only a very very very few that might compete - really amazing quality, especially because its so consistent over the whole series!
Competition, other shows with full personal 5★-ratings:

  • Drops of God S01=5+★ :-)

  • The Legend of Vox Machina S01+S02=5★

  • Pantheon S01+S02=5★

  • Home Before Dark S01=5★ S02=4.5★

  • The Peripheral S01=5★ (damn shame the it was canceled)

  • Skull Island  S01=5★

  • Maybe Silo, but i have to see it a 2nd time :-)

Other personal 5★-ratings for other shows seasons

  • Arcane S01

  • Carnival Row S02

  • A Discovery of Witches S01

  • Vigil S01

Quite some Season out there with "4.5★" (like Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Murdoch, SpaceForce, Sandman, Mandalorian, His Dark Materials, The Magicians, etc.) but i rarely consider "5★" ... so this show is an extraordinary gem :-)))
Some shows haven't received a second "Rate"-viewing, so i might have missed some

You can't beat Gary Oldman.  Disgustingly terrific.
