Wednesday night = BBC America
I now know what I’ll be doing most Wednesday nights from now on this TV season. Last night I watched Law & Order: UK (how did I not know this existed before?!) and The Hour on BBC America. SO GOOD. Law & Order follows the formula set out by all the various American franchises, but it’s kind of fun to hear them use all their terminology for their system, plus the lead detective is cute.
The Hour is BBC’s answer to Mad Men. No one does costume drama better than the Beeb – political intrigue, a gutsy young woman taking on the sexist broadcasting world in 1956 London and discreet sexual tension. I’m totally hooked after one episode. And I want my hair to be styled like Romola Garai’s everyday. A+ from me – Wednesday isn’t Hump Day any longer when you’ve got something to look forward to!!
The Hour on BBC America. Watch it Wednesdays @ 10 p.m.
