One of my favorite shows this year has been the Apple TV+ spy drama, Slow Horses. Imagine everything that makes a James Bond movie, and this is the exact opposite. It reminds me of all the John le Carré novels I used to read where the spies are sad, broken people more than martini drinking killers.
I’m probably doing a lousy job of selling it, but if you like spy stories, this one’s a doozy. Apple has already filmed season two and is now committed to seasons three and four. They’re all based on Mick Herron’s Slough House novels, and I’m halfway through the third book now.
