    A someone who is deeply drawn to political drama and thrillers I was naturally very excited to see both parts of this show from the second I saw the posters. However it proved itself to be a highly amateur and indeed immature effort, both in terms of plot and delivery. Whilst Andy Peterson can just about hold the line as a ruthless and ambitious Oxbridge High Tory type, the female lead was quite unconvincing. She also got flustered on a number of occasions during the performance and was highly reliant on not just on Peterson but the over use of coarse language and sexual innuendo to get her through. Whilst the show is billed as satire it has a sinister undercurrent reflecting a seemingly unambiguous hatred and contempt for middle class England. Whilst not an English person but I felt watching this was I being manipulated into supporting not just the writers' obvious political allegiances but also perhaps their prejudices? The show finished a few minutes earlier than billed on my viewing and thank God for that. House of Cards this is not.
