The show does not have any end credits, ending each episode with a trailer for the next episode and only showing a BBC production information screen. It does not list any cast/crew. Just the caption "A Kudos Production". See more »
The show runs for 60 minutes, and in the UK airs on channel BBC1 which shows programs without commercials. The show has been re-named MI-5 for American broadcasts on the A&E network, and each episode is edited down to approx 44 minutes to include commercials in a 60 minute time slot. See more »
a nice addition to american television, and a great alternative to the mind numbing onslaught of reality television
This show (titled MI-5) just landed on Tuesday nights at 10 pm, with many encores throughout the week on the A&E channel. For those of you who are not familiar with the american channels, A&E runs various biography shows, a few other british shows, among others. To put it another way, when I watched it, there were no commercials for beer or fast food. It is a smart interesting show without all the flash of "24" or "alias", which are among my favorite shows. In the first episode there was little background on the characters, which is very different for american television audiences. I felt like I had missed a few episodes. The show did not spend as much time on the tech stuff either, but somehow that didn't seem so important as a great story unfolded during the hour. Very little publicity about this show has made it out there, and I only hope that enough people will stick it out and give the show enough of an audience to continue, lest we be stuck with only more of the summer dreck from the big networks.
