I watched the first episode this evening, an enjoyable bit of froth noir with Iain Glen, Emilia Fox and Dawn French playing very against type as a foxy ex wife. Has anyone else seen it?

Darn it, wanted to see that. Will have to iplayer it tomorrow blush

Ohhh I watched it. I really didn't think we'd be seeing it like this. If that makes sense. Looking forward to the next one smile

I enjoyed it very much.

Wasn't expecting what happened.

What channel was it on?!

Brontebiscuits Sat 31-Dec-16 08:45:16

Sky 1 Bike. I enjoyed it too, not too taxing but a little bit quirky too. I did find the teenage daughter annoying.

Yeah I watched the first episode last night. I wouldn't bother watching the next one if the ending wasn't what it was. That made it more compelling and I liked the look of the next episode.

Boo. We don't have Sky. Fingers crossed it makes its way to Amazon at some point.

I watched it and loved it. So nice to see something a bit 'different'.

Just watched it, definitely different - also enjoyed it. I too wasn't expecting the ending.

I really didn't like it. Didn't find any of the characters likeable and all their foibles were just overdone in my opinion.

Will give it another go I suppose but it just feels over-cooked (see what I did there smile ?)

Hi, I watched it with DH & said same as lozenge, none of the characters are likeable, but that won't stop me watching all 4 episodes. Another series set in Cornwall. It's so beautiful, but the locals must be getting fed up of tv crews! The actress playing the doctor/alternative practitioner is playing a similar character to the one she played in that series about the boy with autism. Not well expressed, sorry!

I knew I recognised her! Thank you! I think the characters are purposefully a bit unlikeable at the moment iyswim. I'm hoping we see more and different sides of them as the series goes on!

BikeRun download kodi onto your firestick if you have one. Can also download onto a smart tv or laptop. My 11yo did his so it can't be difficult (I didn't do mine so can't speak from experience).

Is anyone still going with this? I saw episode one but wasn't that impressed. Does it get better? I love Dawn French but found her character really unlikeable.

bbcessex Sat 07-Jan-17 16:13:35

I thought it was terrible.. like a poor version of Midsomer Murders (which I loved because of the cheese favour grin).

Who on earth put Dawn in that biker jacket / skirt thing ensemble? shock .

Completely completely unrealistic on a million levels. Absolute crock of shite (in my expert opinion 😅).

NancyDonahue Sat 07-Jan-17 16:45:14

Thanks bbc. I don't think I'll bother then!

takesnoprisoners Sat 07-Jan-17 16:57:04

It was okayish. I don't know if I will watch the second one. That Dawn French sex scene was so terrible!

dementedma Sat 07-Jan-17 17:07:22

Sorry,but I thought it was awful really disappointed as was looking forward to it.

Moodykat Sat 07-Jan-17 18:35:02

I actually quite like it.

bbcessex Sun 08-Jan-17 12:49:12

Nancy with my eloquence, I should definitely be a TV critic!!!

On a more positive note - Endeavour is back on tonight, hurrah!!!!!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 08-Jan-17 16:11:23

I'm really enjoying it! Do we have to like characters? I love stuff with flawed people .

It reminds me of The Life and Loves of She Devil a bit.

Autumnchill Sun 08-Jan-17 16:20:30

I just like staring at the beautiful food shots 😃

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 08-Jan-17 16:26:03

Me too and the fantastic houses!
