Escapism in Shooter and Night Manager

Well with so many headlines, it’s nice to find some really engrossing (non big budget) action/thriller series. We’ve watched two you should check out:

  1. Shooter. Yes the original movie was kind of hokie (although I loved it), but the series is really terrific. 10 hours of really, how does he get out of this anyway. Plus the soundtrack is just awesome. And it worked just as a standalone series. Omar Epps is just awesome as usual and Ryan Phillippe and the cast are great. It’s very loosely based on the original film which was loosely based on Point of Impact.
  2. The Night Manager. I think I wrote about this one already, but it is a series that I’d love to watch again. From our friends at the BBC. It loosely follows the plot of the John LeCarre novel.
