Looking forward to this :-)

I'm not a big fan of drama, but the trailers for this have made me intrigued.

10.12 - turned it off ...

29bus 15-01-2013 22:13

Like a bad play ...

Black_Waltz 15-01-2013 22:16

Only thing I didn't like was the bloody floating chat text. If you're going to do that, make it easy to read...

ryanbain75 15-01-2013 22:16

Not got a clue so far...seems all rather too clever...will persevere.....

QwertyGirl1771 15-01-2013 22:17

Looking good so far, though I have a huge cushion on my lap to place in front of my face for the gory bits.

ryanbain75 15-01-2013 22:21

Sounds like renta-Russian accent!

29bus 15-01-2013 22:33

Making lots of assumptions about someone you don't know.
Maybe I watched it and didn't like it - simple as that - and it was 12 minutes not 5.

Ed R.Marley 15-01-2013 22:33

The suited goons quiff is quite bouffont isn't it? I haven't seen one with such bounce in a long time.

Black_Waltz 15-01-2013 22:35

He reminds me of that BBC comedian...

Black_Waltz 15-01-2013 22:43

Best sex scene ever.

nap* 15-01-2013 22:43

I really like Grant but I want to know how screwed up his life was to make him so genre savvy.

jcafcw 15-01-2013 22:49

I haven't got a clue what is going on but Wilson Wilson is another in a long line of funny crackpots.

Sex scene of the year.

I am having fun whilst be bewildered.

EIwood 15-01-2013 22:52

What is even going on? Fifty minutes in and I've not a clue beyond an evil manuscript and an evil corporation. Not enough exposition, and if it takes three parts to get to anything interesting, then I'm out.

Can't say I didn't give it a fair chance.

Only enjoyment so far was seeing Michael Smiley (Tyres from Spaced) playing a serious policeman role.

So either he becomes someone important down the line, or it was just a very small roll for him!

ryanbain75 15-01-2013 23:00

Not coming back for episode 2....tried!

EIwood 15-01-2013 23:01

and they just killed Tyres. No idea why. Just some weird fat bad guy who waddles about like hes shit himself. Really not getting the hype about this. Maybe I'm just too old to "appreciate' it properly. :yawn:

Seems to be popular on most social media sites though, so I guess it's aimed at a younger audience?

Very small role but nasty way out! And the killer is Neil Maskell whom were in same film as Michael Smiley - Kill List

It's watchable but it's style over substance for me. I think I'll stick with it though.

kegsie 15-01-2013 23:06

I'll give it the rest of this episode but short of something spectacular happening and/or absolutely nothing else being on at the same time next week then I'm out.

kania 15-01-2013 23:08

Not sure I can watch this for much longer.. it's reminding me of Hostel. :eek:
