Holy shit. Netflix just released a new Netflix Original: Bodyguard, and it’s fantastic.

Bodyguard tells the story of David Budd played by Richard Madden, who you’ll recognise as Robb Stark from Game of Thrones. Budd is an English war veteran who after helping stop a terrorist attack, is assigned to protect a British politician who was an advocate for the very conflict he fought in.

An incredibly well-written storyline keeps the series punchy at just 6 episodes. I really appreciate the lack of the corny dialogue you find in most crime series (think CSI or Law and Order). Seriously this is the best series I’ve watched since the Prime Video release of Jack Ryan.
