Do you like sharp humor, London and are you looking for a super exciting and intelligent series? Then ' Slow Horses ' from Apple+ is also an absolute must-watch for you. We watched series 1 and 2 back to back and now, with season 3, we wait for a new episode every Wednesday (and find the wait very difficult). In this blog post I will tell you why this series deserves a place on your viewing list.

What makes 'Slow Horses' so special?

'Slow Horses' is a spy thriller set in the dark corners of British intelligence. The series, based on the books by Mick Herron, follows a team of failed MI5 agents - the 'Slow Horses' - who are exiled to Slough House, a kind of penal colony for secret agents.

The power of the story

The compelling story of 'Slow Horses' is both complex and intriguing. The series is a brilliant mix of razor-sharp humor, suspense, and political intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot twists are unpredictable and make you constantly want to know what happens next.

Strong characters and great visuals!

The strength of 'Slow Horses' also lies in its characters. Lead actor Gary Oldman, known for his versatile acting performances (including Sirius Black, Harry Potter), is phenomenal as the dirty Jackson Lamb, the unorthodox leader of the group. The interactions between the characters are believable and often hilarious, which adds an extra layer to the story.

The series is also visually a feast for the eyes. The direction is tight, and the cinematography perfectly conveys the gloomy atmosphere of spy life. Each episode is a work of art in itself, with attention to detail and atmosphere.

'Slow Horses' is perfect for fans of spy thrillers, but also for viewers who enjoy deeper character development and witty dialogue. The series offers a unique look at the world of espionage, far removed from the glamor of James Bond, and presents a more realistic, grittier view of the life of a secret agent.

Long story short

' Slow Horses ' is a series not to be missed. With its clever plot, strong characters, and beautiful cinematography, it offers top-notch entertainment. Sit back and let yourself be drawn into the world of Slough House.
