I'm not sure I want Mad Dogs to win, actually. Although I thought it was great, I didn't think it was the greatEST. It would be a shame, I think, for Mad Dogs to get a BAFTA when Life on Mars didn't. But I suppose looking for fairness in awards ceremonies is ridiculous anyway... I always think it's an honour to be nominated and that winning itself is pretty arbitrary. Although, if I was the one nominated for something, I'd definitely want to win!
I have also finished watching series 1. The pilot episode was a bit slow but not a boring way.You are pretty sure something will go wrong ( not just because you have seen the footages of the guys in the beginning) I mean scene by scene,the writers built the tension.We only see POV of the guys so we're clueless who's telling the truth. Their friends,Alvo...He was pretty messed up if we hadn't seen he was clearly murdered,I would have thought he was behind all of this! Also that woman detective.For a moment,I thought Baxter would believe in her and tell everything.I feel weird by saying this but I was glad to see she's gone at the end of the finale. Overall,I really enjoyed it.Besides J.Simm,all the other actors were amazing.I'm now looking forward to seeing series 2
