Anyone watching?
it's a bit slow so far.

Fixmylife Sun 01-Oct-17 21:21:54

Yes missed last week's episode so keen to see what this is like.

Fixmylife Sun 01-Oct-17 21:22:34

Just been googling to see if Macon Heights is a real place! (It isn't)

MusicToMyEars800 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:26:44

Last weeks was good, but the ending was a bit sudden.
I like this one so far.

MusicToMyEars800 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:28:44

I look forward to next weeks episode, It has Steve Buscemi in it smile

LouiseBrooks Sun 01-Oct-17 21:47:50

This is the first I've seen. I like it.

twofloorsup Sun 01-Oct-17 21:48:38

I'm watching.
It's really bizarre !
Did I need to watch last weeks for it to make sense ?

MusicToMyEars800 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:49:37

Louise They are good, I missed the first one though, The Hoodmaker I think it was called, I watched the impossible planet last week though and really liked that one.

It looks like Poundbury. The glued down gravel around the trees is the give away.

MusicToMyEars800 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:57:20

This is confusing!! Maybe it's the wine I've drank grin

BubblegumFactory Sun 01-Oct-17 22:06:01

Balls, drifted off and missed the last 2-3 minutes. What happened?!?!!

viques Sun 01-Oct-17 22:09:58

music to my ears oh me too, one of my all time favourite actors,they have really pulled out the stops with the actors it seems.

Did he get back to his 'normal' life?

CredulousThickos Sun 01-Oct-17 22:19:33

He got back to his normal life.

I really liked this one but it was really uncomfortable to watch, Timothy Spall was ideal as the lead because I always find him quite uncomfortable to watch anyway.

I wondered if the son raped the cake girl in a different timeline, they never said what he was arrested for at the start apart from saying ‘she was a teenage girl!’

Did the other commuter say he wanted to erase the damage to the children? So was he a paedophile?

I love that this series doesn’t attempt to explain stuff too much. It’s just, hey, here’s a magical never-built town and the planner’s daughter is fixing people’s lives whether they want her too or not because her dad killed himself. Errrrrr ok.

I like that it leaves you filling in gaps, coming to conclusions and inventing different possible explanations.
There are too many really obvious storylines on TV at the moment, so I find it really refreshing.
Must read some Phillip K Dick stuff.

The hoodmaker was pants but I liked this one. And surely they've given Steve buscemi a good story next week so will give it another chance. If it wasn't for Timothy spall they'd have lost me at the hoodmaker.

SuburbanRhonda Sun 01-Oct-17 23:18:06

Must read some Phillip K Dick stuff.

His novels are fab. My favourite is The Man Whose Teeth were all Exactly Alike grin

BubblegumFactory Sun 01-Oct-17 23:22:33

Thanks Rhonda, that's an appealing title for a book grin

Flomper Sun 01-Oct-17 23:48:36

yes its poundbury apparently. does it always look so sterile?

SuburbanRhonda Mon 02-Oct-17 07:52:49

I just googled images of Poundbury. It looks terrifying. I would lose my mind if I lived there.

MusicToMyEars800 Mon 02-Oct-17 10:44:18

Going to google Poundbury now grin
I think I will have to read some of Phillip K Dicks Novels, I am really enjoying these episodes, So the books are bound to be better aren't they?!

MusicToMyEars800 Mon 02-Oct-17 10:48:48

It does look like it was filmed in Poundbury.
That place looks horrible, It reminds me of a development not far from where I live, That place looks like a film set too.

boopsy Mon 02-Oct-17 11:18:02

I loved it, quite strange and chilling, right up my street!

LouiseBrooks Mon 02-Oct-17 12:52:46

I just looked up Poundbury on Streetview. I definitely like the architecture but none of the streets I clicked on had a single person in them! It's like a ghost town!

EBearhug Mon 02-Oct-17 12:56:37

Yes, it was filmed in Poundbury.
