最近非常火的一个电视剧TV series 《人民的名义》可以说红遍了大江南北。翻译完稿子，
可以说是blockbuster了吧。笔者今天就带领天下烤鸭们一一来领略其对雅思口语Ielts Speaking有用的Phrases& Expressions:
A dashing detective bursts into a secret villa and uncovers huge stacks of cash
stuffed in fridges, closets and beds. Meanwhile, the villa's owner - a government
official - crawls on the floor and begs for his life.
This is the dramatic opening scene in China's latest hit TV show, In the Name
of the People, which made its high-profile debut last month.
Dashing ( adj) 时髦的，有自信的，风度翩翩的
Eg: At that time, he was a dashing , charming and charismatic guy , I really had a crush on him.
Hit (n) 风行一时的事物(如电影，戏剧，歌曲等)，轰动一时的事物。
Eg: The product was such a hit that women wore them as accessories around concert grounds.
High-profile adj.高姿态的; 高调的; 备受瞩目的; 知名度高的
Eg:Despite and high - profile crackdowns , corruption remains a seriousproblem.
The series, about China's anti-corruption campaign, has gripped millions of viewers acrossthe
country. Some have compared it to the American political drama House of Cards,
which has a huge Chinese following.
In the show, local government leaders try to sabotage a top justice's arrest order;
laid-off workers hold violent protests against a corrupt deal between the government
and a corporation; and fake police drive bulldozers into forced eviction sites.
Viewers have been lapping it up. "This TV drama feels so real. It really cheers people up,"
one viewer wrote on social media network Weibo.
"I shed tears after watching this drama. This is the tumour of corruption that has been
harming the people," said another Weibo commenter.

More than a decade ago, anti-corruption dramas suddenly disappeared from
Chineseprimetime television. Authorities in 2004 had decided to restrict the
production of such dramas as too many were of poor quality.
But when Chinese President Xi Jinping took power in 2012 and launched a
sweeping campaign against graft, anti-corruption got back in vogue.
Chinese state media has extensively covered crackdowns on corrupt officials,
and TV networks have rolled out documentaries showing officials confessing
on camera and sobbing with remorse - even China's anti-corruption agency did
a show about corruption within its ranks.
Prime time (n)广播电视的黄金时间
Eg: The broadcast went out on television at prime time, when everyone was watching.
In vogue 正时兴，正流行
Eg: The French style of trousers is very much in vogue just now.
Roll out (v) 铺开，摊开
Eg: We’ll give her some VIP treatment and roll out the red carpet.
In The Name of The People is thus the latest piece of propaganda aimed at
portraying the government's victory in its anti-corruption campaign.
At least it does a decent job in entertaining viewers, building suspense and intrigue.
In one episode an investigator gets hit by a truck just as he is about to meet an
informant, while in another the deputy mayor flees the country with the help of a
mysterious government mole.
In entertaining viewers, building suspense and intrigue
Eg: The TV program which definitely does a great job in entertaining viewers ,
building suspense and intrigue. 这个电视节目在给观众带来娱乐，引起悬念和引起好
奇心方面做得的确不错。 (note! 历年来，雅思口语考试中Part2都有一个长久不衰的
