To say that all of us here at Crime HQ are fans of British television would be a bit of an understatement. Not only do we keep track of all the best shows they are not showing in America (get on that BBC!) but we have one or two particular favorites that we pay special attention to. We’ve also mentioned before that there is a whole slew of things out there on the Internet that are free to watch and pretty awesome. So, what do you get when you combine free TV with British television? The Hulu series Spy.
Spy is about a poor guy who likes Sudoku and has a dead end job. He desperately wants the approval of his hyper-intelligent son, whom he won sole custody of in a rather nasty divorce. So what’s he do? He quits his job at some generic version of Best Buy and goes out into the world, looking for something better. What he accidentally finds is a position with MI-5.
The show is a lot of fun and well worth the watch; it stars Darren Boyd and Robert Lindsay.
Don’t believe me, check it out for yourself online. Or you can tease yourself with the clip and trailer below.
