This is great quality drama, as you'd expect from the BBC, just sad they had to go with the tired old trope of male bodyguard sleeping with his subject, but I suspected it was coming when the titles highlighted the word 'body'

Do yourself a favor and give this show a shot. I just finished watching the season one finale and I loved it. I hope there will be a second season. If not, I'm going to be very annoyed. To say the least.

Completed the #Bodyguard series in Netflix....This one comprising of 6 episodes had a terrific start as well as unexpected & twistful end with lot of drama, twists and turns with well connected dots glueing us to the entire series intact...Very well made & definetly worth watchable...!!

First 2 episodes are a bit slow, and the last 2 are reverting to the good old bad muslim terrorist plot. The bit in the middle is entertaining.

Good show & well worth a watch especially for people into conspiracy theory. However Episode 6 seems rushed, they tried to wrap up the show & it's poorly executed (sure the main plot is tied up but lot of sub-plots are left open). In episode 6, some of the characters change their attitude at the snap of the finger which is very strange (it's almost like the writers couldn't figure out a way to transition the characters change of mood so they decide to scrap everything they built up for the character in the first 5 episode & just gave them new attitudes toward David). If you can get over the annoyance of the last episode, you'll enjoy the whole series.

keeps you excited for 6h

I thought the first episode was amazing it really was a good hook but that hook didn't last long. The rest of the show I found boring and it completely lost my interest.

A fairly enjoyable show with enough twists and thrills to keep you interested throughout. While there are a number of completely unexplained plots twists, but they don't cause insurmountable issues in terms of watchability. The major issue that I have with the show is the lack of character development throughout.

That was f***n great! I hate politics and usually dont like to watch shows with this theme, but this was soooo exciting, all the intense energy in Richard Madden's act... and Sophie Rundle from Peaky Blinders, and Keely Hawes from he Durrells...OMG what a cast! I just love BBC shows! And yes, you gonna binge it... no chance to leave it for later... :D

Wasted my time and Boring. The show made David Budd as one of Marvel Superheroes
