Quick-paced and with brainy, fast dialogues and a great cast from which Bill Nighy inevitably stands out, "State Of Play" is, for its six hours, an addiction.

Excellent from start to finish. Well worth a few hours of your time.

This classic BBC miniseries, directed by David Yates (of 'The Legend of Tarzan' fame ... oh, and some obscure films about wizards) features a simple, but very good and well-told story and top-notch acting that makes for quality television. And this might be Nighy's quippiest role which is, of course, saying a good deal.

Tense taught and a metric ton of great acting by great actors. It's often a fiver in retailers which is an absolute steal.

Stopped watching after episode 3. Couldn't get into this. Didn't help that I couldn't keep the characters straight.

This piece of work is a good example for British Tv productions being better than the Americans. They have exceptionally good actors and the plot is thought- and suspenseful. Additionally they do not tend to stretch a series more than it's needed.

I was pissed because part 6 was labeled 5 and 5 was 6 so I missed a whole hour of making sense and maybe the score would have been higher. Quite enjoyable accent on Macdonald.

Not bad, but nowhere near as great as the other reviews make it seem

To call this a thriller would be like calling Waterboy a comedy. The ensemble cast are uninteresting and unlikeable. The drama usually involves someone saying something unintelligble (I had to turn subtitles on) and after what seemed like 11 hours of this, the reveal is cliched and flat. Excellent use of the word "arse" though.

A very entertaining political mystery--a la *All the President's Men* and *JFK*. One of the few films/series that I liked a lot despite feeling lukewarm about the leads (Simm and MacDonald).
