Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 December 2021
I enjoyed the show a lot, though you should not go into it expecting a very faithful adaptation. As with last series, it removes some of the iconic yet goofier scenes like the Alex in the real video game levels, Roper's death via the moneybox, and Alex's bike chase through Amsterdam.

The story in general I think was better than the books though, and the rapport between Alex and Tom is great - the scenes of them at school feel so real as someone from the UK. Cray strikes the right balance of disarming yet menacing, and Mrs Jones stands out as a good character willing to stand up to Blunt. I wish Smithers was more true to his book character, but divorcing him from the books let him stand fine on his own merits, if a little duller.
