Just finished episode 1. I loved the first 2 seasons then thought season 4 came back up to speed. I'm not really sure what Francis is trying to achieve in this episode (the popular vote obvs) and he just seems to be almost a caricature of evil. I can't see him lasting long...

Anyone else seen?

Just about to start...

Just watched the last episode of Season 4 as preparation!

"We do not submit to terror.
We ARE the terror." 😱

Can't wait to get stuck in!

3 episodes in and I am so suspicious of the two of them. I liked them in a guilty sort of way before but not finding them very likeable at all right now.

I'm on episode 4, definitely shaping up to be a great series. I'm really enjoying the dynamics of Frank and Claire's relationship this series.

Back for episode 2, it's getting gripping! Not really sure what Doug is up to with this vote thing (potentially because I started a Mumsnet thread instead of paying attention in ep 1!)

This show has got to have the most chilling opening credits ever. I find the music and the images soooooo creepy.

It's really good.

Worth watching just for Claire's outfits!

Been holding off all of my day off so far but can't wait any longer to find out who wins the election! Hope they don't drag it out....

On episode 5 here.
Don't like Claires longer hair.
I can't work out who is the worst person , Claire, Frank or Doug.
Mrs Conway annoys me, he voice grates.

Her not he

2 episodes in (I deserve a medal for not watching without DH while I've been sick for 2 days!) but it's not "grabbing" me like other seasons. I think it's because we already know they are both completely evil, so there are no surprises.

Things that would seem far fetched in series 5 have been overtaken by recent shocking events - Trump and his travel bans, declaration of war, terrorism around election time and whether polling should go ahead

I'm onto episode 7 and loving it. coco I just said the same to DH. Her short hair is so striking on her.

Cocolepew Sun 04-Jun-17 11:48:36

I have one more to go, Claires hair hasn't moved in the last three episodes.

Cocolepew Sun 04-Jun-17 21:20:22

Just finished watching the last one.
They are the worst people ever.
Loved it.

nameohnameohname Sun 04-Jun-17 21:26:53

Coco you've battered your way through this season! I'm so envious!!

Aridane Sun 04-Jun-17 22:18:34

Am on Episode 12 - then just one more to go. Freaky how topical some of it is.

Aridane Mon 05-Jun-17 22:41:32

Just finished watching - loved it! ( And have abit of a crush on Claire / Lady Macbeth).

Now going to watch the latest episodes of Fear the Walking Dead

BlackeyedPetitsPois Mon 05-Jun-17 22:48:10

I've just finished episode 12, so one more to go!! Yikes.
Agree it's very topical considering recent events shock

Some elements of this season just didn't make sense. I would post more info but can't do so without spoilers so will leave it at that...

Just finished it. Enjoyed it but who is Jane? I would have thought that Francis would have batted her off with ease, but she seems to have a lot of power.

The whole thing is a lot darker than previous seasons. Hair and clothes worse than ever IMO.

Really enjoyed it! Looking forward to Season 6 smile

Cocolepew Tue 06-Jun-17 21:07:13

I loved it, though tbh I only understand about half of what is going on blush
We ripped through it because DH got told he was working away for 2 weeks.

Aridane Tue 06-Jun-17 21:18:12

just my luck - you're teasing, aren't you - there is no season 6?
