Pointless Nonsense

nightmanagerThe Night Manager is the BBC miniseries imported to AMC with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, based on a John le Carre novel. I do tend to enjoy the cerebral espionage stuff like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (which was also a le Carre adaptation), and this is more of the same. Not super exciting, but still my kind of thing.

Hiddleston (who I am still not entirely used to seeing without the Loki hair) plays a hotel night manager who stumbles into information about an arms dealer (Laurie) and tries to do the right thing, and then a globe-trotting spy game ensues.

Hugh Laurie’s character is named Richard Roper, not to be confused with the film critic Richard Roeper. The werewolf guy from the original Being Human, whatshername from Broadchurch and Peep Show (not Dobby, the first main love interest) also appear, and a British that guy who always plays smug pricks plays a smug prick. There’s also some kinda hot blonde girl, and a kinda hot mystery ethnicity woman at the beginning.
