Slow Horses - Gary Oldman-led AppleTV+ series. held off on watching it until i knew s2 was happening. since s2 is currently airing, we started watching it a couple days ago and just finished s1 last night. it went by VERY quickly. this is a fantastic, fast-paced show about MI5 rejects and/or agents that have been figuratively "sent to siberia" to serve under disgraced leader Oldman. the writing is top notch (Will Smith - no, the other one - who also wrote things like Avenue 5 & Veep), particularly for Olman's character. he is so low key which is a great "straight man" to the high action/tension show, and his absolute loathing of people he works with (in a loving way) results in many, many LOL quips that i'll be quoting for a long time. toss in a couple GoT actors and i highly recommend this show, and now very anxious for s2 to wrap so i can watch it.
