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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
