Every episode is like Groundhog Day.

I don't know what Groundhog Day is but I love Gentleman Jack. Suranne Jones deserves an award for her portrayal of Ann Lister.

You don't know what Groundhog Day is? 😮

Yes it’s amazing! Don’t get what you mean about Groundhog Day. There are ongoing plots which recur each episode if that’s what you mean?

*i haven’t seen tonight’s episode yet, so my apologies if Bill Murray turns up to do the weather

I was going to watch the news but GJ is still on - anyone know why?

I am finding it tedious.

I am enjoying it but a bit bored of the coal story. I have no idea what Groundhog Day is either.

Toddlerteaplease Sun 23-Jun-19 22:12:17

I think somethingnover ran. Antiques roadshow was late

I absolutely love it but tonight's episode could have been done in ten mins. But glad there are two more.

I have last week's ep, and today's still to see. But I've been quite disappointed with the series, so I don't know when I'll get round to watching them.

I'm enjoying it....

Maybe I'm old as I have heard of groundhog day grin

Hepzibar Sun 23-Jun-19 22:18:50

It just seems tedious, maybe Groundhog not accurate description.

The last 10 minutes of tonight's episode was good.

Suranne Jones is fab. She is the best 'cryer' ever.

Late running due to football (now that was a drama!)

ourkidmolly Sun 23-Jun-19 22:20:57

i find it dull and repetitive too. I don't really care about the characters and have given up watching.
I can't believe there are posters who don't get a Groundhog Day reference. It even comes up on predictive text!

Groundhog Day - the same day happening over and over again.

practicalmagick Sun 23-Jun-19 22:28:48

The real story of this thread is people not knowing what Groundhog Day is! Go and watch the film immediately, you're missing out!

JaneJeffer Sun 23-Jun-19 22:33:16

I've got it all on Sky+ but haven't got round to watching yet. I just came on here to see if it was any good. I read the book back in the 90's which nobody on here apart from OP was alive during grin

TeapotofTerror Sun 23-Jun-19 22:41:59

I got bored with Gentleman Jack too but I really want to go and watch Groundhog Day now, haven't seen it in years!

TheStuffedPenguin Mon 24-Jun-19 06:56:55

Gave up as was just a bit boring ...

Pebble21uk Mon 24-Jun-19 07:59:01

Yes... I've been waiting for 30 years for this kind of representation on screen. One person's boring is another person's groundbreaking!

BenWillbondsPants Mon 24-Jun-19 08:05:28

I have up about 3 eps ago.

crimsonlake Mon 24-Jun-19 08:05:54

I was on the fence about it at first and kind of gave up. Returned to it as I could find nothing else to watch. I am actually enjoying it, although I do not particularly like Suranne Jones as an actress, love a period drama and lots of well known faces appear.

ZaZathecat Mon 24-Jun-19 14:13:13

I love it.

LoafofSellotape Mon 24-Jun-19 14:17:19

I think last night's episode was stretched out a bit to make the series into 6 episodes, it could've been condensed into 10 mins imo.

The companion book is really interesting and am enjoying it.

Love it too. Suranne Jones is fantastic.
