The contemporary interpretation of le Carre’s espionage drama — and the first TV adaptation of a le Carre novel in more than two decades — follows a former British soldier (Hiddelston) as he navigates the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington where an alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade, infiltrating the inner circle of arms dealer (Laurie).

The quality of this show surpassed all my expectations, practically blew it out of the water. Phenomenal actors with a great story and deeply thrilling story line. Hugh Laurie takes his role to another level, perfecting the role of the genius arms dealer. And Tom Hiddleston is not just the powerful Loki of Asgard but a multi talented actor pulling off a fantastic role in this how. You get pulled into a very complex story, and it feels like a Bond movie but with more complexity and I enjoyed every moment of it.

This quality of work is a rare find for this type of production and should not be missed. I really do hope that there will be a follow up with the same crew of people who put this amazing show together.

They took what could have been a decent two and a half hour movie and stretched it into a six hour miniseries. The last half was pretty good, but it sure got off to a slow start. Thus, I have a hard time recommending this one, but I do not feel my own time was wasted. If you're particularly fond of either or both lead actors, and/or if you like mob/spy thrillers, you might enjoy this, though I didn't think it brought anything new to the table.
