I've become impossibly hooked on early episodes of a BBC series called Spooks -- retitled for the US market as MI-5, perhaps because the Brits believe us incapable of understanding that Spook is the mother country's word for Spy. Love the sights of London, Thames House, all the intrigue, and top spy Tom Quinn, played by Matthew Macfadyen.
Enough said?


  1. Used to watch this series all the time. Thank the cable gods for BBCAmerica.

  2. I am with you on this one and Matthew Macfadyen is great..I think he played Darcy very well in Pride and Prejudice. Would like to see him in more things..

  3. Oh this is on Netflix Instant! I've been tempted to watch a few times. Now I will definitely have to check it out. Have you seen Jekyll? Or Hotel Babylon? Both excellent.

  4. i have a big time lady boner for this man.
