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.

BubblegumFactory Sun 01-Oct-17 22:12:55

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.

BubblegumFactory Sun 01-Oct-17 22:55:09

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.
