    Anyone watch last night? I recorded it because I have finals next week (on top of the fact that I work full time) and plan to stay in and watch it Friday night with my girlfriend. I checked Rotten Tomatoes and it opened up to very good reviews (currently sitting at 96%) and Hugh Laurie supposedly killed it. Wondering if anyone stayed up for it so I can get the PatsFans take.

    I've watched the first three episodes. The cast is outstanding and so, far, it's shaping up to be really good. Olivia Colman who plays Tom Hiddleston's handler is an outstanding actress.

    Finally caught up on the first two episodes. Nothing short of excellent thus far.

    Just watched the first 2 episodes myself. Very good.

    AMC has some great shows.

    Dude... Hugh Laurie is the bad guy... an arms dealer and Tom Hiddleston, the next James Bond, is in it. It's a 6 part mini-series that the studios have tried to make into a movie time and again but couldn't because no screenwriter could do it justice with just three hours. How would you NOT be interested?

    Is it just a one season thing?

    AMC has done a pretty crappy job promoting it. Apparently it was a ratings hit in the UK, but not so much here. Which is too bad. The acting and the story itself is fantastic.

    It's outstanding. The first 30 minutes in episode 1 were riveting. The authentic scenery shots in Egypt, Switzerland and Majorca (my honeymoon location a million years ago) are spectacular. Not to mention Jed, Roper's squeeze. Speaking of spectacular...

    Besides her legs, Jed doesn't do it for me..

    I was actually more into Hammid's mistress Sophie.

    She looks like a boy to me. I can't do short hair on women. Sounds weird but it is what it is. Agree about Sophie. The last two episodes are going to be phenomenal.

    LOL, you're definitely looking at her differently than I am. I think she's hot as blazes.

    I think she'd be hot if she had longer hair and a little more meat on her bones. The short hair thing just doesn't do it for me. Different strokes for different folks, though.

    Anyone have any final thoughts? I thought it was very good, although I thought the earlier episodes were the better ones. Overall, a real good take, in my opinion.

    Taking summer courses on top of working full time so I didn't get a chance to watch the finale yet. I heard it was awesome, though.

    Yeah,
    I think you'll like it. I also saw some stuff online indicating there may well be a sequel. I won't spoil the finish, but there were definitely doors left open. Hope it happens.
