Compston on the series The rig

As the son of a man who actually worked on an oil rig, Compston knows how much the setting of the tv series Prime Videos The rig is suggestive:

An oil rig is by nature a peaceful place. The same goes for Kinloch Bravo, before darkness and mystery takes over. As paranoia and dislikes mount, it becomes difficult to avoid each other: there are no places to hide.

On the one hand, there is that of those who are called upon to manage it on dry land and in the mold. And, on the other hand, that of the workers who, outside, get their hands dirty and face emergencies. Fulmer he straddles the two universes but also has a relationship with the female scientist Rose Mason (Emily Hampshire), an oil company representative who is seen by all as a corporate cost cutter.
