i just returned a disc of Spooks to netflix. considering how long it's been since A&E stopped showing it, i had forgotten how awesome the show truly is. this latest disc (2 episodes) was practically on par with a Borne movie: suspenseful and engaging. one of the major features of the show is that no character is safe. at any moment, each could be taken out by a sniper, bomb, or knife-wielding midget, enhancing suspense to no end. (maybe that doesn't fly with a general american audience accustomed to celebrity fit club and milf island.)
highly recommended. as with every show from the beeb, wife and i also have fun trying to recall where we've seen each actor.
