Finally caught up with this wonderful BBC series. If Guy Ritchie’s THE MAN FROM UNCLE does classic Bond better than the recent Bonds, then THE NIGHT MANAGER does realistic Bond better than the recent Bonds. All of the Bond trappings are here: the hero, the villain, the girl, the henchmen, Moneypenny, globe-trotting, advanced military technology, beautiful clothes, a casino, Swiss bank accounts, and they even squeeze in a vodka martini. But it’s all wrapped up Le Carré-esque plausibility. Currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
