Capital City

“IF HE DOESN’T BREAK EVEN, he breaks his phone.” With taglines like that, how could CAPITAL CITY possibly fail to not be a complete failure? A Canary Wharf-sized cocktail of high finance, greed, sexual horseplay and shouting, the only things missing were decent plots and likable characters. Perma-portfolioed employees of pretend finance empire Shane Longmans included JASON “CHILDREN’S STORY HARRY POTTER” ISAACS, PIPPA “HELEN BRITTAS” HAYWOOD and LOUISE “HOUSE OF ELIOTT’ LOMBARD.
