Slow Horses is finally back with a whole new season filled with espionage, institutional failure, corruption, dark jokes, and deadly farts. The Apple TV+ series recently came out with its much anticipated third season and once again it revolves around the MI5 failures who are occupying Slough House. In the new season, we see a member of the Slow Horses getting kidnapped and how the rest of the team fights with everything they have to get them back.
As always Slow Horses isn’t your typical spy thriller because its characters and stories are as far from James Bond as they could be, and in my opinion, that’s what made Slow Horses one of the best espionage thriller ever made.

Slow Horses Season 3 – Review (Is It Worth It?)
It feels like the quality of writing is only going up from the previous two seasons, and it was already great in the first two seasons. The funny one-liners have become more mean and entertaining to watch for instance Scott Thomas’s Diana says this to one of the Slow Horses in a scene: “Keep walking until you get to the sea, and when you get to the sea, keep walking with your mouth open”.
