"Quiz" is a thought-provoking and entertaining miniseries, even if it peters out a bit close to the end.

It was quite delightful to see an ITV drama sending up its own former executives, television not only eating itself, but taking care to cover every morsel with tomato ketchup first.

The game show scandal is a niche genre, but it has become a personal favorite, from Robert Redford's "Quiz Show" (1994) to Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008). Now, you can add another gem with the three-episode British miniseries "Quiz."

Frears' charm and whimsy feel all but absent, limited to a few scenes or dialogue exchanges. For a quiz, this feels too easy.

Quiz will surprise and delight in its even-handedness and compelling recreation of events.
