First Impressions (Spoiler FREE): The Night Manager

So... this show is about really good room service, right?




Premise: A hotel night manager is recruited to spy on an international arms-dealer. Or... in geekier terms: Loki spies on Dr.House

Verdict: Really cool spy drama

If you are not in the UK [and you don’t like to watch TV illegally], chances are you have not watched this show yet. So I will keep my review spoiler free. Just some general first impressions.

In a nutshell, I really really liked it! And it must be noted that I have VERY high standards when it comes to spy shows. Very few espionage dramas have won me over since Alias [The Americans, D83... end of list], so I get incredibly excited when I find one that checks all the boxes. 

The Night Manager has a lot working for it. The tone and visual style are reminiscent of classic spy movies. The story is intriguing, the setting is exciting and the scenes exude tension and suspense. Hugh Laurie is chilling as the villain of the story and I don't think I have ever liked Tom Hiddleston this much [was he always this good looking?].

So far, I am much more excited about this show than War & Peace. 

Should you watch it? Definitely a must watch, especially if you like British drama and brainy spy-movies like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. 

And I will cut this short, because I think the Twitterverse explained it better:

The Night Manager is all about Hotels... apparently:


And I wasn't the only one appreciating Mr Hiddleston:

But there was also a lot of talk about another spy:


But this user settled the matter once and for all:

Sounds right to me...

  1. I require men to experience the patching and adaptability that comes when you get honest to goodness with yourself, with God, and with other men. That is the way by which we discover who we are, and the manliness we're made for and the capacity to walk it out. Much gratitude to you such an awesome sum for sharing us such a charming kind of data. The Night Manager Leather Jacket
