Damn, anyone itching for a solid helping of 24-style thrills and spills, this is the ticket to grab. Sure, with this sort of heavily plot-driven show, not everything will stand up to scrutiny, but it's not too outlandish, it's all pretty thrilling and plausible. And with only 6 episodes, it definitely doesn't outstay its welcome. I think I stopped breathing during the season finale.

Richard Madden is great, no wonder he's now suddenly considered for the role of James Bond although I'm not sure I agree he'd be the best fit for it.

Getting an Ivan Danko vibe from that picture too.
