God, they’re all awful, aren’t they? We weren’t doing the weekly-watch and so missed out on the week-by-week popular intrigue (remember back in the past when we used to work in offices and this sort of thing was called “watercooler chat”?). It worries me a bit how this show was wildly popular in the UK and featured as a normal practice the barefaced lying to one’s inner circle whilst also lying to the outsiders with whom the characters were keeping their options open. The whole thing was a bullshit-based game of chicken to see which person was going to actually go through with a doublecross and allow all the in-reserve plans to swing into action. Gripping, and awful, but wonderful.
