It’s summertime, I’ve spent far too long over the past couple of weeks trying to get my head round unnecessarily weird prestige tv and I’m in the mood for something uncomplicated and entertaining; Ransom, a Canadian/German/American/French co-production about a (maverick, right? He’s got to be maverick) hostage negotiator played by Joseph Byrne from Holby City faking an American accent sounds just the thing. Starting tonight on Universal at 9pm, the 13 episode initial run is all we’re likely to get – with both CBS and RTLGroup ditching the show, there’s no real prospect of a second season – but that isn’t going to put me off. One-and-done can be fun! I’ll review the first episode at least and we’ll see how much.
