Beautifully photographed, gorgeous actors, and dull. That’s right, The Night Manager. For me, spoiled, as it was for other reviewers, by an unbearably implausible meet-cute in Episode 2. Apparently, this will get the lead actor the Bond role, for his ability to simper vacantly through many a tight situation. Or maybe not? Also his girlfriend and other actors think he’s a twit? I’m just saying. I put the time in. Written a little differently, this could have been a great show, that’s all I’m saying. With the same cast. So I put it on the writers. One of them should really have known better, but I guess he really doesn’t do that much TV.
