Just wondering if it's going to be one of those shows that I'm the only person who watches so it gets cancelled - like The Tomorrow People - or if anyone else is as enthralled by it as I am?

I am! I don't fully understand it tbh but I fancy the blatantly eye-candy policeman.

I'm watching it too! I can't wait for next weeks episode. I'm hoping for another season while they leave us with a good cliff hanger. And totally agree about the eye candy police man! smile

I'm watching it at the moment but I'm thinking about stopping. I have heard that it's been cancelled in the States after the end of series 1 so I doubt there will be any neat ending sad

I was watching but gave up. It irritated me after a while. Was good at the start I thought.

We've finished it and i think it was only ever planned to be a mini series so I can confirm it doesn't get cancelled early.

No comments about the ending though!

I'm watching! I read it was only due to run for 1 series, but I'm happy with that, as I wouldn't want it to drag on.

Watching here too.

I saw the Belgian TV series Cordon that this is based on, so it's been interesting to see how they compare.

StArted watching but found it too silly and unrealistic so have up.

I'm watching but starting to get bored. Glad to hear it doesn't get dragged out to be honest!

I looked on Wikipedia and there are spoilers for later on in the series.

Did anyone see last nights episode? sad

I think she's going to make it tbh

BreatheDeep Thu 22-Sep-16 09:31:49

Last night's was So sad. Only 2 more episodes to go. I think it's right it's only one series as they can do things more 'realistically'. I think all people in the corden might die shock

I thought last nights episode was really good.

It seems to be getting a lot of negative reviews thought which I cant understand.

Yes, it has dragged on, though I've stuck with it, but last night's ep.was excellent! I cried a lot at the end and thought the lad who plays Quentin was spot on. Very affecting.

Gave up when I realised this didn't have Zombies in it. Dh still watching it. I was a bit hmm at the shower curtain sex scene. If you can call it that...

DPotter Thu 22-Sep-16 20:20:24

I'm watching but it is being dragged out a bit!

Nightfall1983 Thu 22-Sep-16 20:33:36

I'm still enjoying it very much, was in tears at the end of last nights <hormonal softy>. I don't mind it only being one season, agree it's the kind of thing that is best suited to a single season in many ways BUT it is was "dropped" in the states then I bet it doesn't end properly, but rather ends as a cliffhanger/billions of loose ends which will drive me crazy...

Oh, and whoever said they think the teacher lady is going to pull through - I don't think so!

colouringinagain Thu 22-Sep-16 20:41:22

I'm watching it. Haven't seen last night's but rather apprehensive now!

Fuckoffdailymailnobs Fri 23-Sep-16 12:29:31

Watch the original it's much much better

BreatheDeep Sat 24-Sep-16 18:19:25

Original? I didn't know it was based on something else. Where can I watch that?

MrsJoeyMaynard Sat 24-Sep-16 19:12:41

It's based on a Belgian TV series called Cordon. That was shown on UK TV earlier this year or last year - I think BBC4?

BreatheDeep Sat 24-Sep-16 21:45:02

Thanks! I will go and have a look

Is cordon in English?

Or in a foreign language with English subtitles?
