Slow Horses season 2 is directed by Jeremy Lovering, starring Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Jack Lowden among others.
The story is based on the “Slough House” novel series by Mick Herron. It revolves around a dysfunctional MI5 team working in the Slough House, the department reserved for “disgraced” MI5 officers and agents. The team is led by the obnoxious Jack Lamb (Gary Oldman).
Laden with dark humor, this drama-thriller has received raving reviews, and its second season is much anticipated. Despite starring Oldman as a chief in the intelligence circles, do not expect a Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy (2011) number, this series is very different.
Reviews of the First Season
“There is a bit of barbed humour here, yet it’s also a surprise how unthrilling it is for a spy thriller.”James Jackson: Times (UK)
“The action and violence, when it does happen, is fast, brutal and efficient. And just as quickly, the show is back to something that occasionally resembles a bleak workplace comedy. It’s an expert juggling of tones.”Nina Metz: Chicago Tribune
