Bodyguard (Netflix) -- S: Richard Madden -- Premieres 10/24/18




Set in and around the corridors of power, Bodyguard tells the story of David Budd (Richard Madden), a heroic, but volatile war veteran now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for Londonís Metropolitan Police Service. When he is assigned to protect the ambitious Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes), Budd finds himself torn between his duty and his beliefs. Responsible for her safety, could he become her biggest threat? Bodyguard arrives on Netflix on October 24.
6 episode season


Trailer just dropped today. This premieres next Wednesday on Netflix. Posting this since it's probably not on most of your radars. And there's a bunch of things on right now too.

UK series that Netflix picked up the rights for. This was reportedly one of the most watched TV shows in the UK this year.

... and rumors are floating around that Richard Madden might be approached to be the next James Bond (being discussed here).

He looks like Turtle from Entourage in that still (post weight loss).

first two episodes were pretty good. I think I will enjoy seeing how this plays out. Nice that its only 6 episodes so it does not seem to be wasting too much time in side stories etc.

Just finished this up, very good watch, felt a lot like a crisp British version of 24...

Finished it last night. There have been so many gov't conspiracy dramas over recent years that it's getting to the point of overkill. That being said, this was very well done. Helps that it was a 6-episode season.

This stuff plays out like the show Spooks, which is a very good thing. Great stuff so far. Currently on Episode 5.

I was already interested but that makes me even more tempted. Good to know. Loved Spooks/MI-5. Speaking of which, I never did finish the last two seasons or see the movie. Should get on that.

Last 2 seasons are great. The movie is okay, if anything to see Peter Firth back in action.

I just watched the first two episodes. This is exceptional.

Watched all 6 episodes over the weekend and it is really good. Madden was really good but I didn’t understand the last 25 minutes and how and why certain things happened. Anyway, I am in for a season 2.

Re: Bodyguard (Netflix) -- S: Richard Madden -- Premieres 10/24/18

Finished this up today. I liked it, but I thought it wrapped up alittle too neatly in the final episode, with all the co-conspirators freely (and proudly, in some cases) admitting their part in the crimes and giving up all details without provocation. Don't think it usually works like that.
I also thought Richard Madden was good, but at the same time didn't see anything in this series that should make him the front-runner as the new James Bond. If he does land the role though, so be it. Good for him.
