Sean Bean is back

CityPress - - T# - Leg­ends

Fox Crime (DStv chan­nel 126) Thurs­day, 8.30pm Leg­ends, star­ring Sean Bean, who you may know as the un­lucky Ed­dard Stark, who got killed rather graph­i­cally in the first sea­son of Game of Thrones, fol­lows a deep-cover op­er­a­tive named Martin Odum.

Odum has an un­canny abil­ity to trans­form him­self into a dif­fer­ent per­son for each job.

The se­ries has re­ceived mixed re­views from the crit­ics, with Tom Con­roy from Me­dia Life say­ing: “The lit­tle flaws in the show prove so dis­tract­ing that we can’t get in­volved in ei­ther the plot or the hero’s psy­cho­log­i­cal prob­lems.” But an­other re­viewer had this to say: “Leg­ends is a spy saga that em­ploys most of the familiar per­son­al­i­ties and quirks, but it does so with suf­fi­cient flour­ish and com­mit­ment.”

We’ll give it a try. – Grethe Koen
