The story takes wild, violent leaps amid myriad conspiracies, leading to a crazy, nail-biting climax that is both preposterous and wholly satisfying. Some binges feel like a slog. Bodyguard is more of a race, well worth the run.
The result is a fatally broken series - it starts very well and goes off the rails in its last episodes - but it is blatantly visible that it offers the same discourse as the cinema of the 70s: the institutions are rotten. [Full Review in Spanish]
Pure, can't-take-your-eyes away entertainment that's bound to have you saying "just one more episode before bed." This is sterling television, a well-crafted crime thriller, which is what the BBC does best.
Bodyguard is a perfectly calibrated thriller that cleverly builds up the tension so you're always questioning what you see and hear, puzzling over everyone's motivations and real loyalties, and to hook you from beginning to end.
