Publisher's Summary

Deep underground, in a top-secret location, the war against terror, anarchy and foreigners in general is being waged. Inside The Hub, where intelligence gathering blends seamlessly with state-of-the-art, counter-terrorist hardware, dedicated professionals work day and night to keep us safe...and somehow always manage to totally screw things up. Health and Safety Officers insist on covert agents wearing hi-vis jackets, mad scientists invent edible time machines and the world is finally saved by a visiting postman.
24 meets Blackadder in this fast-paced, irreverent, madcap comedy, set in a world of secrets, shadows and utter stupidity.

Predictable, but fairly enjoyable

I think it started out nicely, had a few chuckles, but by the time I got to the end I was just a bit bored. It was very predictable, you just sort of know what jokes they're gonna make.

I liked the different characters though, and the narrators all did a great job.

Could be something...

The Hub takes its place in a long line of sitcoms based around bureaucratic incompetence, pomposity and the absurdity of all those silly rules. Think Men from the ministry, Twenty twelve and....the mother of them all....Yes Minister.
It has some good ideas and the central premise of being set in the world of intelligence is a sound one but I think it would need to go more into the intelligence gathering itself to really work. I hope that is the plan.
An enjoyable half hour, thank you, and I look forward to hearing how you develop things.
