“The Hour” has been slashed by many reviewers which I feel is unfair. Ok it shouldn’t have been billed as something compared to “Mad Men” because it's not American and thus it is going to contain some ugly people. Also unlike “Mad Men” it has probably been made for a tenth of the price.
Ignoring the “Mad Men” comment I find “The Hour” a well acted, interesting programme that is nice enough, not special but nice which for the BBC at the moment is like saying it is a piece of Shakespeare (have you watched “Tonights the Night”?). It’s worth a watch when the only other thing on at ten in Britain is “Smallville”.
