I'm 15 mins into the first ep.

It's not this dire all the way through is it??

Is it all filmed in the two(?) different timelines?

Hi Diddl....
Erm, yes practically all of it jumps back & forth.
It took me quite a few episodes to get into it, but I really really got hooked!!

RayBloodyPurchase Sun 21-Dec-14 19:37:32

It's fantastic, and Rust is beautiful....

diddl Sun 21-Dec-14 19:38:07

It's got such good reviews I was expecting to be instantly hooked.

it's so slow!

Even when they found the body it didn't peak my interest!blush

diddl Sun 21-Dec-14 19:38:48

"Rust is beautiful...."

Too gaunt for me!

UnexpectedSchoolOffer Sun 21-Dec-14 19:40:00

We watched it all but didn't enjoy it. It got great reviews though.

diddl Sun 21-Dec-14 19:41:12

"We watched it all but didn't enjoy it."grin

yeah, I kinda feel that I should watch it!

HoHonutty Sun 21-Dec-14 19:44:43

Oh no, I was planning on watching this over Christmas. Any other suggestions?

sidsgranny Sun 21-Dec-14 19:46:30

Its fantastic! Keep going with it

CrispyFern Sun 21-Dec-14 19:46:53

Yeah I didn't rate it.
I find it hard to work up enthusiasm for yet another mutilated teen prostitute tale nowadays.

eurochick Sun 21-Dec-14 19:47:32

It is very bleak...

RayBloodyPurchase Sun 21-Dec-14 19:47:37

I didn't see it at first, he grew on me...
I really loved this series, it's the best thing that's been on this year imo.

diddl Sun 21-Dec-14 19:49:28

I've just been naughty & read the plot for the first ep online & it sounds really interesting.
but it's just not grabbing me.

AnathemaIsANiceNameForAGirl Sun 21-Dec-14 21:27:39

It is a slow-burner (and really really not great in its representation of women hmm ) but I did end up hooked.

diddl Sun 21-Dec-14 21:34:08

well i've just watched the first ep & there's been another murder so they might have got the wrong guy in 1995(?)

so of course now i want to knowhmm!

SecretSquirrels Mon 22-Dec-14 16:29:30

I've tried twice and failed to get to the end of episode 1 <yawn>.
Loved the soundtrack though grin

janx Mon 22-Dec-14 16:31:29

I thought it was great and fantastic music

Velocirapture Mon 22-Dec-14 16:31:41

I loved it. Though episode one didn't exactly reel me in.

diddl Mon 22-Dec-14 20:31:22

Well I've watched three, so will see it through now.

Come down with a stinking cold so will only be moving between the sofa & bed for a couple of days!

KarinMurphy Tue 23-Dec-14 21:40:18

I watched it all and really don't understand the hype. It's slower than molasses, both leads are over acting to the point that it almost feels like a parody and I found the ending deeply disappointing.

KarinMurphy Tue 23-Dec-14 21:41:43

Sorry, pressed send too early.

However I watched every episode and kind of missed it once it had finished so it must have had something.

diddl Wed 24-Dec-14 16:40:22

It's definitely slow!

And a cliched.

when Woody Harrelson's character found out that his OW was seeing someone so went round in a temper & making threats!hmm

MM's character gets on well with WH's character's wife, so I'm guessing that they'll have an affair at some pointhmmhmm

StillStayingClassySanDiego Mon 19-Jan-15 19:33:07

I know it's a bit of an old thread but we watched it recently over a couple of nights and it was fan-fucking- tastic other than the daft chase in the Corcosa labrinyth.

Absolutely loved it, we liked the slowness and the music was brilliant .

SisterMoonshine Mon 19-Jan-15 19:42:41

Same here.
I just watched it last week too.
Loved it. It had a sort of Fargo feel about it.

mumofthemonsters808 Mon 19-Jan-15 19:48:56

I loved this series, I was so angry when my sister gave up with it after the first episode, it is fabulous. I'm so disappointed to hear that series two will have different actors playing the lead roles, very big boots to fill.
