Is anyone watching? I think it looks really promising I think.

I'm half watching. I should really turn off, go to sleep, and watch it on 4od.

We are about to give up and we're only on the first ad break. Are we meant to be able to read those msgs? The text was far too small and the contrast was completely inadequate, couldn't read a word. If it turns out to be important we'll be really annoyed.

It's very disappointing as we were really looking forward to it. DH has already given up and is gazing at guitarson ebay. I'm hanging inthere, but if there's a lot of it, I'll give up too.

Really pissed off, tbh, even though it's only tv.

Yes they were tricky to read. The messages said that one guy had the second volume of Utopia, the rest said there wasn't one and he said that it was unpublished and never been seen before. Then they arranged to meet in the pub to look at it. People from the forum have never met before apparently.

Thank you, Rollergirl. I may have to ask for a similar synopsis if there's another flurry of unreadable text!

How are you enjoying it so far?

Rollergirl1 Tue 15-Jan-13 22:40:44

Hmmmn, I'm finding it quite disjointed. I had heard that it very much relies on the audience to make the connections themselves.

I have no idea whats going on with the guy and the Russian flu vaccination!

Forgot this was on, better tell me at the end if it's worth 4 OD

ThePathanKhansWitch Tue 15-Jan-13 22:44:07

I,m loving it so far. Brilliant.

I think it's quite good so far, also confused about the Russian flu storyline tho

Jux Tue 15-Jan-13 22:52:26

It's interesting. I think it might be good.

Rollergirl1 Tue 15-Jan-13 23:01:47

What's wrong with the bad guy that just killed the cop? He walks weirdly and never talks. Do you think he might have the disease?

KissysUnderTheMisteltoe Tue 15-Jan-13 23:03:35

Maybe, he's pretty sinister!

I'm quite enjoying it. Thats a good point Rollergirl. Oh I hate it when they do extra warnings like that, something gorry ahead.

KissysUnderTheMisteltoe Tue 15-Jan-13 23:09:00

Don't think I can watch this bit confused

SinisterBuggyMonth Tue 15-Jan-13 23:10:16

Ok officially hiding behind the pillow now

SinisterBuggyMonth Tue 15-Jan-13 23:12:40

The new minister is dodgy

Rollergirl1 Tue 15-Jan-13 23:13:05

That was really grim! I wasn't really paying attention at the time but what was the but with this health minister guy talking to Stephen Rea? Who was he meant to be?

Rollergirl1 Tue 15-Jan-13 23:16:12

Ahhh Sinister, perhaps that was the purpose of the Russian flu? So that guy would get the sack or resign and they could get that guy in?

And WHO IS JESSICA HYTHE??!

Jux Tue 15-Jan-13 23:19:04

Ah, officially drawn in!

SinisterBuggyMonth Tue 15-Jan-13 23:21:12

There she is!

ShephardsDelight Tue 15-Jan-13 23:37:07

Oh god that was horrible.

maxmillie Tue 15-Jan-13 23:48:56

Also sucked in, also strangely impressed that couldn't watch the torture scene, don't often see that on tv, very disturbing.

Keep thinking about the boy in the comic shop : (

Yes I reckon arby and Jessica are both genetically altered.

Apparently one of the actors said it builds in shock factor and that on a scale of 1-10 this one was only a 2!!

i was very confused

My theory is that young Grant is actually one of the killers from the past... based on tracksuit bottoms and the limp!

I can't watch violence like that. It turns my stomach. It's a shame, because I wanted to watch it and follow the story. But if there's going to be more 'shock factor' horror scenes, I'm out.
