Read on and find out what just why the critics are calling it “spectacular,” “decadent” and “epic.”

The Night Manager combines luxurious production with razor-sharp writing, and it’s brought to life by a brilliant cast, headed by Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.” – Kristi Turnquist, The Oregonian

“A beautifully constructed update on le Carré’s 1993 novel, the casting is as eye-popping as the globe-trotting locales.” – Joanne Ostrow, The Denver Post

“The acting is top-notch, the story is like a page-turning novel, and the locations are eye-popping.” – Adam Buckman, MediaPost

“Throughout six episodes, the plot of The Night Manager is perfectly paced, logical and satisfying.” – Alec Bojalad, Den of Geek

“An epic thriller, The Night Manager has the swank look of a James Bond movie but with a swift intelligence and a stirring passion that provide depth.” – Hal Boedker, The Orlando Sentinel

The Night Manger never loses its balance and hardly ever takes a wrong step. All of those splendid elements add up to one triumphant production. What’s not to like?” – Mark Dawidziak, Cleveland.com

“Hiddleston, Laurie and [Susanne] Bier aren’t just adding another credit to their resumes. They’re part of a series that’s quite likely a game changer.” – Bruce Miller, Sioux City Journal

The Night Manager proves that television is the ideal format to bring le Carré’s novels to life.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN

“Its story is intriguing, its characters compelling, and its production value awe-striking. The only thing I didn’t like is that I have to wait each Tuesday for more.” – Kristy Puchko, Comic Book Resources
