View Full Version : Spooks: Code 9

Lazarus and the Gimp

Without the slightest hint of exaggeration, the worst TV show I've ever seen.

I bought the DVD set for Mrs Gimp, who is a huge Spooks fan. We watched the first episode last night, and inside 10 minutes I was hurling abuse at the screen. Mrs Gimp sat through the whole 40 minutes (plus the full 5 minutes of "forthcoming attractions") before simply saying "Well, that was shit."

Absolute crap. Nobody in it could act, and the plot was practically non-existant. By the end of the first episode, we'd established the following-

1- Someone has killed an agent.

2- And nobody knows who did it.

That's it. That's really it. Everything else was just pointlessly twitchy steadicam angles, terribly choreographed fight scenes, and incidental music.

Utter cack. It made me feel much kinder towards "Howard's Way". Any fans here?

This is the Spooks in the future for kids, aimed at people who like Hollyoaks right?

I've gone off Spooks a bit, it was brilliant when it started but I can't be arsed watching it any more, this looked awful on the trailers.
