Hope Kira doesn't die sad

Agree with fussychica - the lead actress is fantastic. Apart from having a good storyline and being a bit scary, I also find it very funny. It is just so different from the usual bland stuff that comes out of US/Canada.

I think it's great hokum - the actress playing all the parts is great - I forget it's just one person doing the lot.
Series 2 has been commissioned so not sure we'll find out anything definitive this time round.

I thought I was unshockable but the tail bit was horrific
And when the little girl got run over at the end!
I agree it's daft but I want to see how it ends now!

I,m watching it-it's a bit daft but I'm enjoying it though That tail thing was horrible!

I really like the actress though, I think she portrays the different characters very well.

mamapants - really? I thought it was a North American thing to say 'mad at'.? Where are you from originally?

I'm only on ep3, but her partner Art really pisses me off!

mamapants Tue 08-Oct-13 20:42:37

I would say mad at you. I would have thought that was correct.
Am really enjoying this so far.

well it is quite, enjoyable, but a bit daft tbh

Beeb appear to have reduced the number of showings of this to just one a week? (Friday). Whereas most BBC3 dramas seem to be repeated umpteen times. Wonder why?

I'm quite enjoying it. Reminds me a little bit of Utopia with the creepy music and general wierdness.

waikikamookau Tue 01-Oct-13 08:59:03

I am enjoying it but feel it is rather a teenage story, it is good word used up thread intriguing and also a bit confusing

I'm liking this and forgive the accents as I think she's trying to distinguish between all the different characters she's got to play.

I wish it was a fixed amount of episodes though. I think its already got a second series which means we'll just be run around in circles without answers until we eventually give up catching.

Having said that, I'm in it for the first series at least.

I'm enjoying but no idea what is going on

I actually thought her English accent was quite good, and would have taken her for English if I hadn't known. The only thing the writers have got wrong is the two English characters (Sarah and her friend Felix) talking to each other using the right accents, complete with glottal stops, but using American phrases, such as 'I am mad at you", where a Brit would always say "mad with you."

I am liking this so far, the storyline is intriguing and also the feel is a lot more gritty than a typical North American sci-fi drama.

I am loving it - although her main accent is very confusing it's so intriguing and well shot.

ClayDavis Sat 28-Sep-13 22:42:51

Australian/Canadian/English judging by the accent. I'd just try to ignore the accents, they are terrible. The actress is Canadian though IIRC.

I have put it on series link but not actually gotten around to watching yet...

macandcheesewithbaconbits Sat 28-Sep-13 21:59:58

I think I am getting into it. Is she Australian?
