Started well, but...
Spooks - Complete Season 1 review
14th November 2012
From early promise break to new levels of soapy crapness! The first few episodes were actually quite entertaining. And, although a little far fetched in places, bore all the hallmarks of a cracking series. Sadly, so soon after the first few episodes, the writers lost their nerve and diluted the series into 'just another soap opera' -- with an MI5 theme. Soon the audience was faced with yet another program of shallow, dull, uninteresting characters that leap from one personal crisis to another whilst simultaneously keeping the nation safe from a folly of baddies! Whereas, at the beginning, the plots showed some genuine spontaneity, they soon became telegraphed, predictable and in many cases, laughably unrealistic; demonstrating what could, at best, be described as a flimsy grasp of current affairs.
