And anyone have any idea what it's about? Looks quite good.

Keepthinking of that Mitcell and Webb sketch.

MeMe - I'm hoping it's as good as FlashForward.

Oh ffs...this better get better

shufflebum Fri 22-Oct-10 22:07:27

Why is the second episode just a repeat of the first?

RoobyMurray Fri 22-Oct-10 22:08:35

Now I have had one eye on the laptop all evening, but it wasn't that good was it?

shufflebum Fri 22-Oct-10 22:09:28

Scratch that my husbands a muppet and chose the wrong episode on the Sky +!

ThighsWideShitItsAGhost Fri 22-Oct-10 22:32:32

Its too confusing for me. But him on sofa next to me is enjoying it.

BitOfFunderthepatio Fri 22-Oct-10 22:40:36

Watching it on +1 now. I like it. And thank fuck for something that might be watchable on a Friday night.

ThighsWideShitItsAGhost Fri 22-Oct-10 22:57:30

22 episodes in this 1st series should keep you going, BOF!

WingDad Fri 22-Oct-10 23:04:44

Well I thought it was excellent, I haven't really got into a series in a while like this, so I was already looking forward to it. And luckily, it didn't disappoint, these first two episodes really seem to set up the whole series, probably with many more twists and turns to come.

I think I shall be a dedicated viewer grin

<Decides to omit the criticisms about inaccuracies such as jeeps being able to catch up aircraft on the runway, fighter jets not immediately shooting down the passenger jet, and said passenger jet surviving the impact remarkably intact> wink

Thanks wingdad had been wondering about all those things also....and why the jet engines didn't blow his jeep off the runway when he was behind it.

The second episode redeemed it I think....I probably wouldn't have tuned in a week later after seeing just the first. Fingers crossed it delivers for the next 22 <gulp> episodes!

See you all next week smile

I liked it (although did lol at the bloke driving alongside the plane).

Am still more excited about the second series of Misfits that was trailed during the show, though!

BitOfFunderthepatio Fri 22-Oct-10 23:19:45

I was a bit bothered by the mysterious wind before the weirdness started.

But it seems really good. On episode two now.

Cancel all social engagements on Friday nights for the forseeable, then grin

aDarkStarWithStrangeWays Fri 22-Oct-10 23:24:37

Well, we've all been bothered by mysterious wind before, BoF.

BitOfFunderthepatio Fri 22-Oct-10 23:30:34

grin

I walked into that one.

I for one spent the first eposiode thinking 'What the hell is going on"blush . I was so confused by the first hour , I became convinced I must of miss the vital part which would explain it. I deciided i'll watch the 2nd hour on 4OD, so I could re-watch the first half, where,hopefully, I could get my head round the story line!

aDarkstar... I am really excited about second series of MisFits as the frist one was brilliant ! It really was one of the best on TV for a long time.Saw a trailer for 2nd misfits today, its back in Nov. Yay! grin

aDarkStarWithStrangeWays Sat 23-Oct-10 09:35:55

Hooray, another Misfits fan grin The first series was excellent wasn't it?

iLikeDots Sat 23-Oct-10 11:02:59

It was fantastic aDarkstar, possibly my fav prog of all time. Roll on November.....

southeastastra Sat 23-Oct-10 11:28:34

i gave up when it was '23 minutes before' then 11 hours before - i thought oh piss off and switched over

grin can't bear that sort of thing

sfxmum Sat 23-Oct-10 11:34:28

I liked it, so far so good, let's hope it does not go all Lost on us

VoidofDiscovery Sat 23-Oct-10 12:12:48

Enjoyed it but:

22 episodes, on no, means they'll make up new twists/false endings as they go along. Why can't they just have an ending decided from start and finish after one season.

Yes I watched the first one and we have the second to watch tonight. Also hmm at car driving alongside plane, and irritated by the "8 hours earlier", "3 days earlier" JUST PLAY IT IN ORDER
also I fell asleep right at the end and missed the best bit!
Other than that I enjoyed it
