Anyone else watching as it drops? Four of the six have shown, and it's the most riveting serial drama on air this summer. I've been besotted with it, and last night's (Ep 4) episode stunned and shook me. The cast is extraordinary, and if you're a Russell T. Davies fan, it's mandatory viewing. Not like anything else currently running, but after it completes its incremental reveal, perhaps unmissable for binge watchers. Emma Thompson is the biggest star (and she's brilliantly used), but Russell Tovey has never been better.

I haven't watched it all, but so far I'm not really that into it. Even Anne Reid's character isn't really working for me. Disappointing.

What incremental reveal?

We have watched the first three episodes and while extremely bleak and at times difficult to watch, it is brilliantly done and we can't wait to see what happens next and how it ends.

I wasn’t sure after episode one (I really didn’t know what to expect and it sorta threw me for a loop), but it’s grown on me. I haven’t seen last night’s episode yet (for some reason, my DVR waits until Wednesday night to record it), but I might try to see if it is on On Demand already.

Just finished Monday’s episode. That was intense and sad.

I’m so sad that Daniel is dead  Russell Tovey was so good in this. I’ll miss him.

I think it is very well done and the futuristic ideas are predicated on what is going on in our world today. Monday's episode was heartbreaking not only because Tovey's  character basically sacrificed everything to help his lover, but it paralleled what we are seeing now as people are desperately fleeing countries to find better lives.

I watched the first episode last night. Mixed feelings about it. I like the premise but found that last scene so ridicously over the top and over acted that I found myself laughing. It got me interested enough to keep watching though.

The end of the series is taking a bit of a turn which I hope does not rob the viewer emotionally.

Bump. The actor who played Victor was such a beautiful looking man!

Just finished the finale. I found it quite satisfying. One lonely tear streamed down my left cheek at the end. I know that it was planned as a 6-part mini-series so probably no hopes for a second season. Just as well. It tied up most of the plot points beautifully. Plus HBO didn’t give it Sunday night primo real estate so not likely if got great ratings.

It is kind of a shame that more people did not see this.

The fact they relegated it to Monday night didn’t help matters. It showed a lack of faith in the series.

Chilling truth is, that it's happening for real. You, with your fascist in the White House.

We, with our fascist lead Brexit. We are sleepwalking into a 1930's Germany.
