After the one with the Prime minister and pig, its got to be done..

Not that good, no where near last time. Hopefully next one is better.

reliablemillipede Mon 11-Feb-13 23:12:36

Will never forget the PM and the pig episode !!

Looking forward to next weeks too !

IrrelevantElephant Mon 11-Feb-13 23:13:40

It was all a bit "meh" I thought. Nothing has topped the pig one yet!!

SoleSource Mon 11-Feb-13 23:14:01

Oooh for the sex !! in the attic, good move!

IrrelevantElephant Mon 11-Feb-13 23:15:22

Oh jeez next week's one looks terrifying! I'll come back next week and be 10mins behind again, so can one of you come back and warn me of the scary bits again please!!

I think she put him in the attic as a sort of reference to the way his mother had put all his brother's stuff in the attic when he'd died.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 11-Feb-13 23:17:18

It reminded me of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers.

Creepy.

Fab thread jelly smile

Will be here next week.

reliablemillipede Mon 11-Feb-13 23:19:42

Jellykat Mon 11-Feb-13 23:20:34

SoleSource Mon 11-Feb-13 23:21:39

MildlyMiserable Mon 11-Feb-13 23:21:43

She could at least have got him to help with the decorating before shoving him in the attic!

Jellykat Mon 11-Feb-13 23:25:12

Agree mildly, a bit of colour wouldn't of gone amiss..

Am watching a the follow on prog. about naturism, feel like a weird voyeur!

SoleSource Mon 11-Feb-13 23:28:01

Some really tiny members, in that club.

Jellykat Mon 11-Feb-13 23:30:44

grin was actually thinking that too..

I really like the fairly neutral way charlie brooker writes gender roles but it didnt pass the bechdale test!

Could someone tell me the ending please? I missed the last 15 mins. PM me if you don't want to put spoilers in the thread smile

MarshaBrady Tue 12-Feb-13 20:58:11

Hey Ujj, she put the fake guy in the attic. And he must have been there for years as she had a 7 year old ish dd. I got distracted at the crucial bit, however. Something to do with the daughter taking him cake.

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 12-Feb-13 22:24:03

he ended up in the attic - just like the photos of his brother after he died and his father after he died - (he explained that his mother had put the photos in the attic after they died) and so that ended up his fate too - just a slightly more modern take on a photo.....

i found it very sad actually and really thought provoking. he writes these really bizarre things that i wouldnt think of in a month of sundays - slightly futuristic but exploring what makes us human.....the onslaught of technology....i really liked it.

looking forward to next weeks.

TomArchersSausage Tue 12-Feb-13 22:32:59

I enjoyed it too - also the last series.

He certainly writes more originally than a lot of predictable tosh on tv.

Hammy02 Wed 13-Feb-13 10:24:46

I enjoyed it until the ending. I think it should've ended with her screaming on the top of the cliff. Although I do like Vicar's suggestion that putting him in the attic was like a modern take on a photo. I wasn't clever enough to interpret it that way grin

MarshaBrady Wed 13-Feb-13 10:26:28

I like the photo idea too. I just phased out towards the end which is a shame as that's where it all happened.

It was slower than the other ones, but the idea does still stick with you.

LeslieKnope Wed 13-Feb-13 10:27:50

I really enjoyed it. Clever, thought-provoking and wonderfully acted.

Wasn't completely sold on the ending but understood it in the same way Vicar did.

Had a bit of a giggle at Martha's transition from scruffy student type to glossy-haired, glam mum grin

I loved it. She couldn't bear to destroy him, but also couldn't live with him. So he's up in the attic, a living ghost, tying her to her grief. I thought it was a perfect ending.

piratecat Wed 13-Feb-13 10:39:03

i was scared, i really didn't like the man in the cool box bit. It really unnerved me, had to turn it over!! Came back to it when he was all moving about.
