The best series right now is on Apple TV+ and you didn’t even know it

Silos? Foundation? Monarch? No, the best series of the moment on Apple TV+ is more discreet, so discreet in fact that you may have missed it, and you wouldn’t be the first. We of course want to talk about the irresistible Slow Horses, starring Gary Oldman in the lead role, no less.

Slow Horses is the adaptation of the series of novels by Mick Herron (The House of TocardsActes Sud) devoted to the character of Jackson Lamb, brilliantly played here by Gary Oldman as a grumpy and biting old alcoholic who is not meant to be, always letting out an abominable fart or lighting a cigarette… You you understood: the heroes of Slow Horses don’t exactly have the usual profile, they save the world, yes, but in holey socks.

Between suspense, drama, espionage, action and black comedy, the series follows the adventures of a team of MI5 veterans (the Calves, as their colleagues condescendingly call them) gathered in a special department (the Stable) under the leadership of Jackson Lamb, former flagship of Her Majesty’s secret service, now closeted for a reason that we still don’t know at the start of season 1.

Season 3 has just started on the Apple platform, which will release the sequel at the rate of one episode per week on Wednesdays. The first two have only been online since November 29, but the season has already obtained approval rates of 96% from critics and 89% from the public on Rotten Tomatoes. Better yet, on the critical platform, season 1 had already obtained a 95% from experts and 91% from the public. And season 2? So there, the rates go straight to 100% and 95% respectively. Who said second seasons are always less good?

If, like many, you missed this information, don’t worry, you will easily be able to binge the first two seasons before Wednesday. Because conciseness is one of the great strengths of what many consider to be the best series of the moment: Slow Horses has only 6 episodes per season, with an average duration of between 40 and 45 minutes each. Result ? Zero downtime.
