You do not want to be interrogated by this woman. Mark Gatiss as a record producer, drug provider, orgy organizer, out of Danny's past is as skeevy as they come. He does not have one redeeming quality and he plays it without a micron of shame. Who ever plays a villain this well? This screenplay by Tom Rob Smith is well written and the cast and director Jakob Verbruggen, pull it all together into a compelling and riveting story.
How this story line is parsed out, clues rationed, and then knitted together at the end is fantastic. The cinematography is just manic in the best possible way. The camera swirls around the actors like a shark around a swimmer, pans from mouth to mouth in a conversation literally carrying the dialogue across open space from character to character, pulls in so tight that at times the only image on the screen is the contour of a cheekbone or a speaking mouth.
The necktie scene in the opening of episode 2 is powerful because of how beautifully it's filmed. I have only one complaint. The fifth episode goes a little weak, and has "The End" written all over it. As in, no season 2. This mini series does cater to a fairly narrow audience I guess. There is nothing vulgar or obscene about it but it does contain and imply some rather exotic sexual practices "enjoyed" by both straight and gay people alike.
But in this case, by gay people. That may be a bridge too far for some but the quality of this work and the story line of this project more than justifies it.
And it never seems out of balance or exploitative. See, again here, I don't want to give away why. You just have to see it for yourself and trust. It is well worth the journey. Was this review helpful?

I am the same way. I hang out with boys the majority of my life right now. But, I think we are very, very similar. In fact, it starts to become a joke of what came first? The chicken or the egg? Because so many of my personal Chelsea stories show up in the show. We come into breakfast on Monday mornings and tell the writers and producers what happened over the weekend. Or, funny stories that are going on in our personal lives. I think it evolved a lot in the spring finale airing next week.
You say the wrong thing, you make a mishap, and then with Danny, she never really saw him that way. So, she was always comfortable around him, and they were buds.
She could call him anytime, and trusted him. Now, that she sees Danny in this new light, I actually think those relationships with the boys have completely swapped.
