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.

    One episode had one of the spivs casually saying he’s getting rid of his (yellow) Porsche. “I’ll buy it, mate” says another. Next day, he walks in, hands over 8 grand in notes and the deal is done. Jeez, envy? You bet!
