To each it's own, but naturally the show seems a little "slower" since the main characters are in their mid 40s and the kids are not exactly much of a "rebels" either. The show is also even more character driven VS.story, and some of the secondary characters like those bland PMs were not so interesting compared to Churchill, which can also reduce the dynamism of the show. The later might be fixed with the arrival of M. Thatcher. It seems Gillian Anderson was tapped to play her , and I'm not sure she's the right choice, but she's proved me wrong before when I underestimated her talent [The Fall].
