If a piece of this quality was delivered on such a tiny production budget, I wonder where would be blown away if Nextflix decides to backup the same director, script writers, Mr. Pine and Mr. Roper for one of their original productions. This guy, Roper (Hugh Laurie), may have been Dr. House, but that clearly was in another life. Hugh has many more lives than a cat when it comes to acting. On the other hand, not having been yet acquainted with Mr. Tom Hiddleston, discovering him on Tv has been a more than pleasant surprise. A great actor, I may say for his superb performance as Mr. pine A standing Bravo for the whole crew and everyone involved with the miniseries. A great all around product no matter the constraints. BTW. A Fall 2016 Must see.


Really great show, solid plot, great acting. A must watch.


The quality of this show surpassed all my expectations, practically blew it out of the water. Phenomenal actors with a great story and deeply thrilling story line. Hugh Laurie takes his role to another level, perfecting the role of the genius arms dealer. And Tom Hiddleston is not just the powerful Loki of Asgard but a multi talented actor pulling off a fantastic role in this how. You get pulled into a very complex story, and it feels like a Bond movie but with more complexity and I enjoyed every moment of it. This quality of work is a rare find for this type of production and should not be missed. I really do hope that there will be a follow up with the same crew of people who put this amazing show together.


They took what could have been a decent two and a half hour movie and stretched it into a six hour miniseries. The last half was pretty good, but it sure got off to a slow start. Thus, I have a hard time recommending this one, but I do not feel my own time was wasted. If you're particularly fond of either or both lead actors, and/or if you like mob/spy thrillers, you might enjoy this, though I didn't think it brought anything new to the table.


The Show has 8 episodes not 6


The Night Manager is a splendid new series revolving around spies and smugglers. However, what separates this fantastic mini-series from scores of other that came before it is a fresh script, masterful cinematography, and excellent acting. Hugh Laurie (Richard Roper) is great as always, but this series also introduced me to a wonderful actor by the name of Tom Hiddleston (Jonathan Pine) and commendable support from Tom Hollander ( Lance Corkoran) and Elizabeth Debicki (Jed Marshall). The world of high-end illegal arms trade is an esoteric subject that evades the most general discussion on the matter. We tend to think of illegal trade in terms of drugs and human beings. But Olivia Coleman's (Angela Burr) vivid description of what she saw as a result of advanced bioweapons being used on the civilian population by conflicting factions in a war-torn region puts the urgency in perspective. This mini-series also delves into the corruption that goes with high-end illegal arms trades as even the MI6, a well-respected intelligence organization, is unable to reject. A must watch for those interested in fast paced action-drama, beautiful set locations, and admirable performances.


Pretty sure this has 8 episodes since I've watched them all. All in all a superb series and definetly worth watching.


Looks seriously promising. Both lead characters very, very good as their layered personalities.


is there going to be a second season?


Amazing short tv series I've ever watched. Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie's acting is just top notch!
