This is the best thing I’ve seen Keri Russel do. She is AMAZING in the role. This is very fast paced and the banter is fast and furious. Strong writing, believable characterizations with a little wit thrown in.

Rufus is wonderful as usual ( I still can’t forget Lord M in Victoria ) I should have also said – it’s not just the words – there’s also some knock down drag out physical fighting. As a counterpoint there is also a lot of subtlety – delivered by 2 very accomplished black actors.

I would say to the Diplomat – be thankful for your husband – he is a great sounding board. He can be very supportive in difficult times. He has a good head on his shoulders.
