Welcome to the debut of The Hour, the new BBC2 six-part drama set in mid-1950’s London. Although the show is being compared to a British Mad Men, we’re certain they would never want to be compared to another television show. Some similarities can be drawn though. First, it’s about the golden age of media, except this one is about the development of a weekly news show from the early days of TV broadcasting. The main lead is a handsome dark figure that’s also a “playah” with other women. The Hour is a bit more of a political thriller writes The Luxe Chronicles — so set your TIVO’s and decide for yourself. In any case, we’re fans of a well styled cast dressed to the nines.
