    No
    I'm not a fan of the "Eeeh ahm a lass what eats pasties" school of comedy

    Bermp.

    Anyone see the first episode yet?

    I'd post various things about it but I don't want to start the spoilers straight away!

    No, but looking forward to it - Got Westworld and Homeland on at the moment, so hardly any time for another show. So probably won't get round to this for a few months - so I won't check this thread for fear of spoilers.

    Up to the fourth episode. It’s great stuff but grim as.

    Seems ok but I hope it's not just going to be a total retread of series one with added grimness

    First episode watched. Excellent start I thought and after the way it ended I'm thinking it could be slightly different to series one. Depends where the narrative goes.

    Mind if I was her I would have burnt those big knickers too. :)

    It's definitely not mate. Up to episode 5 has been superb. Interesting cameo in the 2nd episode like

    Fair point, but she'd have had a cold foof in that frozen goods truck

    There is a risk of that. Hopefully there'll be a conclusion one way or another

    Fuck me sideways!! :eek: Episode 6 is one of the best episodes of television I've ever seen.

    It is also hilarious.

    The first series was excellent, although grim at times. For me, the second series lost it a bit and felt dragged out, difficult to maintain the narrative, although it picked up the pace in the last few episodes. Still way better than most series out there.

    That's exactly what I though. Apart from the last bit - its a 6/10 for me, but the wife really liked it.

    It upsets me that this gets so much publicity yet Alias Grace, a far better show, never even gets a mention.

    I enjoyed Alias Grace too - however this is probably more relevant to issues and themes in today's society which sparks further disussion.

    It's just too morbid, depressing as fuck.
