MR NICE GUY TAKES DARK TURN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't Miss This Week... -

IF James Mars­den (right) gave Syd­ney a glimpse of what the fu­ture looks like with ro­bots – he plays one in HBO’s fu­tur­is­tic se­ries – then sign us up. By all ac­counts, the star of and was charm­ing, fun, ar­tic­u­late, and – be­lieve me, this is a rar­ity for Hol­ly­wood types to­day – easy to please.

Any­one who has seen him as sen­tient host Teddy Flood in sea­son two of this bril­liant drama knows the Mr Nice Guy he played in sea­son one has now made way for some­thing darker; as the ro­bots rally to­gether to rise up against the hu­mans that run their world. Which is prob­a­bly just as well – he was just a bit too po­lite about be­ing killed five times in that first sea­son.
