This show is better than "24"!

As you can see from my list of favorites on the side bar, one of my favorite TV shows is MI5,(in England it is called "Spooks", that is what they call their spies apparently). It is a spy/espionage show that, I have heard, is similar to the TV show "24". I got hooked on it when it was on BBC America, but just 4 episodes into season 4 they stopped showing it. YIKES!
So for Christmas I asked for Season 4 but got Season 5 instead so I ended up haveing to but 4 first. Now, I have seen an add on the local PBS Channel that they are going to start broadcasting it in February with Season 1. HIP HIP HOORAY!
Below are some of the cast members from the first few seasons. But let me warn you, don't get too attached to any characters because pratically every season you see casualties of some of your favorites! Do you recognize anyone in the picture below? (Yes, that is Matthew MacFadyen who played Mr. Darcy!)
However, I am amazed at how well they replace them with more excellent characters that you easily accept as part of the group. (Isn't Rupert Penry Jones the greatest!! He is the 2nd from the left in the picture below, (another on my "favorites" list to the right!)
Anyway, I hope everyone will start watching it. It is suspenceful, exciting and thought provoking, and sad when some one you like is eliminated.
Here is a picture of the latest group. I haven't got to this season but I LOVE Richard Armitage(far right)! Have you ever watched the great BBC mini-series "North and South"? He is fantastic in it. Anyway, getting back to the Phoenix AZ area it starts on February 5th, but as they always say, "check your local PBS station" to see when it is on. I promise you will love it, if you like exciting "spy type" shows.

If it has already started in your area, leave a comment, if you like it, for others to get them excited for this great TV show!
