The Bodyguard (series)

Not the Kevin Costner version.

Following a terrorist incident on a train, police sergeant Budd (Richard Madden) is tasked  to protect a highly visible and outspoken politician. I don't dare say more as it might spoil this six episode crime thriller drama, which is indeed worth a watch.

Guard duty: Both boring and difficult!

After the intro the first two episodes do drag a bit, but if you get past that the pace picks up nicely. The acting is pretty good and the plot will keep you guessing (and towards the end, glued to your seat). If you like detective type shows, this one should be on your radar. I give it 3 spasm hands out of 5.


  1. I saw the 1st episode about a month ago and liked it well enough, but haven't made the time to continue on with it yet. Soon (tm).....

    1. Good news then, it just gets better from there. :)
