Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on October 27, 2013

ambassadorsThe Ambassadors is a new series starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb (of Peep Show and Mitchell & Webb) the British ambassador to the fictional nation of Tazbekistan and his aide. I just sort of assumed it would be a comedy, but it’s not actually particularly funny. It plays like a dramedy, with much of the pilot concerned with presenting Tazbekistan as oil-rich but oppressive and making Mitchell’s life difficult weighing the economic interests against human rights concerns. So a lot more political than I was expecting. But I’m fine with political. It’s not great but I’m interested enough to try another episode.
