I’ve just heard that this will start in the US at the end of this month but Channel 4 haven’t said when they’ll start showing it yet.

Ohh I'm excited, didn't think this would really happen. Really curious to see where they take it.

Oooo excited. Though interested in how it will play out as not based on the book etc

There is some stuff about it in the Radio Times.

I think there’s going to be more about Aunt Lydia and about the Marthas. I wonder whether the Marthas were sent to a centre (similar to the Red Centre) to learn how to cook and run a house? They aren’t allowed to read so would have to do all the cooking from memory, rather than recipe books. I’d be useless.

Checking in as loved the first series & book - very thought provoking & scary how close to reality it could all become.

Do you think they will re show season 1 before season 2 starts? I want to refresh my memory

CruCru Sun 22-Apr-18 22:52:00

They may not have time to reshape season 1 before season 2 starts (assuming that it starts in early May). I may be wrong though.

CruCru Sun 22-Apr-18 22:52:15

Sorry, reshow.

Place marking....I've got the first one on DVD and binged watched it recently. Can't wait for the new series.

I can't wait for the second series. I cried at most episodes in the first!

Hoping it starts about the time Good Karma hospital finishes.

I think it's starting here in Ireland this week.
I'm not sure I can face it. I found the first series a really difficult watch.
So daaaark.

AcrossthePond55 Wed 25-Apr-18 03:08:36

It drops tomorrow (I'm in the US). I'll start binge-watching on Thursday as DH is going to be out of town for five days so I'll be able to watch uninterrupted. Yay!

You know, as much as I enjoyed Season 1, I haven't been able to bring myself to re-watch it. It was so good and enthralling, yet so dark and (given our current political climate) so frightening.

Yes! RTE on Thursday at 10:35.
Will also be on the RTE Player, although I dont know if that will work in the UK and it's a bit unwieldy anyway.

CruCru Wed 25-Apr-18 07:17:54

Is RTE in Ireland?

CruCru Wed 25-Apr-18 07:18:54

Ah, just googled it. Yes it is.

whydoineedanickname Wed 25-Apr-18 08:10:57

Does anyone know where you can watch this in the uk?

squarecorners Wed 25-Apr-18 08:13:23

When will tv companies learn that they are basically asking us to pirate stuff when they don't show popular US shows straight away?

KittyKlaws Wed 25-Apr-18 11:45:55

I am really looking forward to this. I would be interested in them exploring the Aunts more too - I have written about this aspect of the book so I am a little invested.

Actually 'looking forward' seems wrong when I found the first season so emotionally harrowing, but I am - it was so well done.

CruCru Wed 25-Apr-18 13:07:19

Argh! There’s a thing in the Guardian that says that the show will be on Channel 4 “later this year”. I know that, technically, in two day’s time is later this year but this opens the possibility that it won’t be shown for a while.

AcrossthePond55 Wed 25-Apr-18 18:35:34

well SHIT

They've only released two episodes!!!! Dammit!!!
