Anyone watching ?

Yep

WipsGlitter Thu 25-Apr-13 21:29:16

Yes. Want their house.

Waferthinmint Thu 25-Apr-13 21:32:39

Yes,

She is fab isn't she. An appropriate adult . . .anything else?

WipsGlitter Thu 25-Apr-13 21:37:05

He's fantastically loathe some.

Yes - bit behind here but enjoying it. Liking that it's just an hour for each episode. 5 month old DS so fall asleep during anything longer!

Loving it so far. Although it's obviously focused on politics, the personal relationships are fascinating. They have a good marriage but he is very controlling. He can't connect to his son but adores his daughter. Sad :-(

Well, it stars my boyfriend David Tennant, has shades of Borgen, and contains Peter Mannion MP from The Thick of It. I love it already!

AlmostHadItAll Thu 25-Apr-13 22:25:30

It's getting even better!!!

teejwood Thu 25-Apr-13 22:33:03

Oh! A thread grin
Was late to tune in but god it was worth it!!
Hadn't heard about the initial premise - ie HIS career - and it was even more fascinating for that.
I remember being totally hooked on House of Cards many moons ago - this is giving me the same vibe.
Did anyone watch DT in Secret Smile a few years back - he can do a complete psycho git VERY well. Am assuming Aiden's controlling tendencies will increase as he has fewer external outlets. And yet I think Freya will be more than a match for all of them. And yes, the Borgen theme is spot on.
Love it!
<and want the house wink>

AlmostHadItAll Thu 25-Apr-13 22:36:25

I want that house too!

Moln Thu 25-Apr-13 22:37:11

Moln Thu 25-Apr-13 22:37:31

Smudging it was BBC2

teejwood Thu 25-Apr-13 22:45:34

I'll have the house and David
<greedy>

Why did David's hair keep changing colour? He seemed to be streaky blonde at one point then dark haired (unless it is my telly).

Loved it! Wonder if it resonates in the Ed Balls/ Yvette cooper household? How long before she ditched the driver and the special advisers? I agree with the Borgen echoes, it has all the makings of an intelligent drama that doesn't feel the need to signpost important characters or plot devices

Moln Thu 25-Apr-13 22:48:30

I think its sleeked back sometimes, not sure. have also spotted th chanagble hair too, though it was just me!!

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 22:48:55

I'll have David in his PJ bottoms and the house please.

I really enjoyed it. Loved the TV interview. She needs to go on MN next. wink

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 22:51:21

The shoes...'They're are a bit Theresa May' grin

although he made her change them <boo>

teejwood Thu 25-Apr-13 22:54:04

corny a MN mention would be hilarious - will keep an eye out for that.
Yoni mmm - see what you mean but Ed got to stay on the front bench after his leadership challenge, unlike poor Aiden.

I've really taken to the academic dad/grandpa chucking in his advice/anecdotes, and like the fact that Aiden's obsession with getting into number 10 isn't that far from Noah's obsession with his alphabet-orientated round the world trip.

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 22:54:57

oooh good point about the obsessions teejwood

teejwood Thu 25-Apr-13 22:55:54

The Theresa May line made me chuckle too. Am torn between thinking "he was right, play it straight on your first day in the job" and "the bugger did not want her to be even more noticeable/memorable on her first day in the limelight".
confused

hmmm yes it could have been good advice, but his reaction to the TV interview was very revealing. What a waste of red wine though.
