You’re Not Watching “The Hour”? Really?

If you aren’t watching “The Hour,” BBC America’s program about a TV news show in 1950s Britain, you should be. I don’t approve of critics who are using other quite unrelated programs — “The Newsroom,” “Downton Abbey” — to make unwarranted comparisons to “The Hour,” to “The Hour”‘s favor. But I do approve of the way critics have embraced the show, which is dark and moody and twisted yet well-behaved and civilized. Dominic West and Romola Garai star. I wish BBC America would find a way for latecomers to catch up via their website: join the 21st century!
