Because I still think I'm right, I'm just seeing you as Dewey in this scenario. I did say "Happy to see it get some love, though." So, y'know ... try to be nice.

Those seven pages of Mean Team's first episode are a masterclass in storytelling: peerless world building; multiple character sketches; team hierarchy explained; Bad Jack's motivation hinted at; a full semi final that shows us rules of play then a phenomenal ("Now pick up the flag and let's hit the showers") cliff hanger.

Incredible.

Wagner/Grant pull the same trick with Ace Trucking. By the end of the first episode, you know the whole set-up and have a pretty good (if rough) idea of every respective character.

Regend writers ought to take note.

Incredibly gauche to quote myself but this is what I wrote on another thread last year

The final frame of Return of the Mean Team let down that whole arc but Survivor is a fun coda.

Mean Team for the win.

No-one talking about/watching this?

It's pretty great, sort of high end spy fiction with a ground hog day like conceit but also quite funny and a protagonist who is very likeable even as ... well, you'd have to watch.

it lays out its single sci-fi conceit pretty quickly then explores all the ramifications of it - essentially they can reset time back to the same fixed time point in the year, and the team can remember everything that's happened even as everyone else forgets (some because it's an ability they're born with, others have had a serum)- but, of course, rebooting the planet is very very costly and so, it's a trick they only pull when there's an 'extinction level event'.

I think if you liked Ultraviolet or Slow Horses you might enjoy this.
