Thoughts about "The Hour"

Episodes 1 and 2 - absolutely stunning.
Episodes 3 and 4 - not quite as amazing but still very good
Episodes 5 and 6 - getting a bit too convoluted and inconsistent.  It seems that the desire to avoid a cliche ending  was partly to blame for the finale feeling like a bit of a damp squid.

Random thought: Romola Garai looked and sounded astonishingly like Drew Barrymore's character Josie Geller in the movie Never Been Kissed.  (It isn't just me... even my wife agreed with me!! :-D)

Still time to watch it on BBC iPlayer (I think it's available until 19th September)

Neat blog you have here. That sounds like an interesting British TV series. Haven't heard of that. Followed!

Thanks! Hope you enjoy it. It's intelligent, well-written drama, even if it does lose its way a bit at the end.
