The Bafta-winning, international hit spy drama returns for a nail-biting tenth and final series. With the truth about Lucas North finally revealed, and following his rooftop showdown at the end of the last series, Harry is facing some complicated questions about the future of Section D as well as some skeletons from his own past. Relationships between the CIA and MI5 have never been more strained, but add the Russian secret service to the mix and Harry and his team have a power timebomb on their hands. Fast-paced, tense and exhilarating, the latest series sees the team tested to their limits as the pressure is on to stop whoever is attacking the fledgling relationship between Britain and Russia.]]>

MI-5 is the government agency in the UK that is designed to deal with domestic security, perhaps roughly analogous to the FBI in the US. "5" is made up of normal people who join the agency "in defense of the realm," and deals with the threats and personal sacrifice each person makes while fulfilling their role in the organization.
Season Ten is the shortest season made during the series entire run (a total of only six episodes), but, in a way, that makes sense because the show is wrapping up the last of the major, unresolved issues from the show's final story arc. But the season still maintains everything that makes MI-5 great: dramatic contradictions, complicated and suspenseful situations, thought-provoking writing, and characters that we come to admire and "root" for as we watch. This is a show that unquestionably is choosing to end production while still at the top of its form, rather than withering away as we have seen in so many television shows over the years.
I always recommend to anyone wishing to watch MI-5 that they start at Season One, and watch the shows in order.Read more ›
Part of me was hoping Harry and Ruth would end up together, but in the frame of things and in the vein in which this show was made, the ending did make sense. I just can't believe it's over. I really can't.
The BBC is amazing, and constantly does things of real substance. I rarely watch television in America; can't stand all the reality crap that TV has become, but every once in a while, a series like Spooks comes along and shows you not all TV is bad.
There was a time when there was 3-top notch shows in the genre on TV (24-USA, The Border - CAN & Spooks) and then there were none!
I would start looking for offers where all 10-seasons (series in the UK) can be purchased as part of a promotion. A very relevant show that isn't afraid to take on controversy, including showing the USA in a less than favorable light.
As another reviewer referenced, a very emotional conclusion. My highest rating.
To my astonishment, the did.
This season is the grand finale of a magnificently executed drama that sets the platinum standard for spy thrillers. It's what James Bond and every other spy drama wants to grow up to become!
MI-5 ended like a Greek tragedy, for sure, but then again, as anyone knows who has seen the first nine series, it *is* a modern-day Greek tragedy of the highest moral object-lesson order. It demonstrates the complete folly of this ancient world we live in, replete with all its "modern" glory and high-tech, illustriously played out like a modern-day drama that future generations may view like we view Casblanca and Biblical historical epoch thrillers, with the ancient Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses (from the Greek word "Transformations") coming to mind.
You want your son or daughter to understand why we must tow the line on terrorism and some Middle Eastern ideologies for our very survival and that of future generations on Earth? This could be required viewing in schools in that regard, because it reveals a terrible truth about our times. You can wish it were any other way, but things are as they are. We can try to change the world, but we must live in it, in all its midieval horror, if we are to approximate peaceful, "normal" lives with the little time we have in the grand scheme.Read more ›
