Yes, Day 4 is running on satellite channels at the moment. I wonder if the MI5 show might be a repackaged version of 'Spooks', the BBC's answer to 24? Or is Spooks shown on BBC America? Complete hokum but a tremendous amount of fun. (For those who don't know, MI5 is the domestic spy service in the UK, James Bond belongs to MI6...).
I see with Day 4 of 24, yet more British actors playing baddies, or
possible baddies, including some of those playing the obligatory arab/muslim
terrorists. Still, considering the machiavellian behaviour of the staff of
CTU as depicted in the show ('OK I will stop those nuclear plants from
melting down, but only if you give me promotion!' that kind of thing) nobody
is represented that positively.
Sorry, that's a bit off topic isn't it...
