Spooks was great last night (I missed the first fifteen mins). Like sugoll I think it has been 24-d up a bit, in a good way. It's more plausible and massively less right wing than 24, but it has that sense of urgency and excitement. There was a certain countdown (actually count-up) going on, and I love that kind of thing. The London street scenes also reminded me of Children of Men. I'm so looking forward to this season now. Hermione Norris as Ros is a fantastic character. They haven't prettied her or youthed her or softened her.
