Has anyone else watched?

I thought it was great. Incredibly powerful and frightening, had me crying in the opening scene. Elisabeth Moss was marvellous.

The tone and look were very true to the book (with a few deviations - it's been a while since I read it but the scene with the rapist didn't happen in the book did it?).

Spotted Margaret Atwood playing one of the Aunts as well.

Looking forward to the next episode smile.

I've watched the first 3 episodes and love it so far.

The rapist scene was in the book but it was further along I think.

Ah sorry, my DP downloaded it using a torrent site. Just checked and not sure it's widely available yet sad.

That site you have to put your credit card details in. And I couldn't get the fucker to close.

Il wait for Netflix or Nowtv.

Sorry, I hadn't got as far as the credit card page, ignore that suggestion!
