Anyone watching?

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Mon 18-Nov-19 21:36:20

I am

myusernamewastakenbyme Mon 18-Nov-19 21:46:48

Me too

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Mon 18-Nov-19 21:55:05

Not that impressed so far

The beginning looked promising . Still, I will give it a chance.

BMW6 Mon 18-Nov-19 21:56:33

I hope she manages to scam all his money from him........

WeWantSweet Mon 18-Nov-19 22:13:59

I've recorded the series, on spec. FWIW I watched The Hunting also on C5 which was shown a couple of months ago and was surprised at lack of comments on MumsNet despite the subject matter.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 18-Nov-19 22:26:22

Watching .

He's shot himself in the foot with the "wiping arses" comment hmm

Angus is his Dad?

Wife in involved I reckon, possibly the brains behind it all ?

I was quite enjoying it until the ridiculous last few scenes - all that creeping into and out of the house in the middle of the night was incredibly risky and the employer didn't even seem surprised to see June there. Even his question about his phone was conversational rather than outraged. Will probably give it another try tonight, just in case it redeems itself.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Tue 19-Nov-19 11:51:57

I think she does overnight says ( there was mention of shifts and hours)

I reckon she'll tell him that the Mum came into the kitchen with the phone and she persuaded her to relinquish it , hence the screaming ?
Though the Mum couldn't have stealth crept into his room so she'll need to convince him he left it on the table .

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 19-Nov-19 14:28:11

Enjoying so far

Scary how a few innocent replies to questions and £84k can be taken

Tho haven’t seen all of e1 - obv something happened at end due to comments onnhere

Amazed not more watched /replied on here

Tho does clash with I’m a celeb ,,,,,,,,

They didn’t think of that

70isaLimitNotaTarget Tue 19-Nov-19 14:52:22

Ahhh , I never watch IACGMOOH, Big Bro, GBBO, Strictly , XFactor , RHo Aywhere no clashing grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 19-Nov-19 14:55:11

I only do celeb jungle

None of the other shows with ‘celebs’

stumbledin Tue 19-Nov-19 19:01:54

I thought that compared to The Accident that got loads of write ups, this wasn't at all bad.

It's always the same with C5 dramas the tv reviewers are too snooty to acknowledge them.

And like the fact that it is featuring a older woman who isn't tottering around in stupid high heels constantly knocking back wine.

And as a story close enough to most of our lives to hook us in.

But they always end badly dont them? smile

And I didn't fall asleep watching it which I did with the first episode of Vienna Blood.

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Tue 19-Nov-19 21:14:05

Enjoying it a bit more tonight .

Just lucky that the house has so many doors from here to there , and a huge hall . lol

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Tue 19-Nov-19 21:15:36

I record Im a Celeb

I don't usually watch it (think Stacy Solomon won the last year I watched) but my mood calls for some mindless TV to watch and I at least know some of them in there this year.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 20-Nov-19 14:12:52

Highchair £150

What’s wrong with Ikea one and £10/12 😂😂

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 20-Nov-19 14:20:55

Tho nice they sally and dan are together again after mount pleasant

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 20-Nov-19 14:57:03

Seen last nights. All of it now

She was a bit silly to spend /steal so much on a buggy and brackets

Not sure if wife Know what he does

Not sure what they involved her With the cash drops off but guess makes her an accomplice

Hope she gets her money

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 20-Nov-19 18:39:30

That pram (in the shop) was like a mint humbug on wheels , poor baby would have a migraine !

The 3rd part is tonight yes?
Then on Thursday there's a documentary out the risks of Cold Callers .

RingtheBells Wed 20-Nov-19 20:46:39

I’m just watching the first episode and enjoying it, I didn’t realise it was on, probably because I was watching I’m a Celebrity, also as it is on channel five maybe there weren’t endless trailers for it

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 20-Nov-19 21:51:03

C5 do some fab films and series ‘s

Often overlooked

lazymum99 Wed 20-Nov-19 22:28:55

It’s very watchable even though tonight’s seems to have slipped into lala land!

salsmum Thu 21-Nov-19 03:29:07

Didn't think the phone scene was that believable why didn't she try to hide it? If I heard a piercing scream in the night I'd have grabbed my phone off the bedside table instantly where the alarm would be set for morning... mr Wiley with all his shady deals would never leave a phone downstairs out of his sight 🤦‍♀️

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Thu 21-Nov-19 12:05:51

That pram (in the shop) was like a mint humbug on wheels , poor baby would have a migraine !

grin grin

@70isaLimitNotaTarget . The last part is tonight (I thought it was Friday it ends but no)
The programme about real cold callers/scammers was on last night after Cold Call as I watched it.
I am wondering how it will end as I truly do not see her killing the Mother . She don't seem to be the sort but then again, that was a hell of a lot of money she lost.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 21-Nov-19 14:26:47

Getting exciting

Will she get her money ? Kill mum?

And who is me big as mr Wiley is scared of him

informedisgood Thu 21-Nov-19 15:59:38

Great idea for a drama but talk about artistic license 🙄
Great idea but poorly executed!

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Thu 21-Nov-19 20:29:39

@70isaLimitNotaTarget I apoligse . You are right , a documentary about them is on now , before the final episode .

What a saw last night re scams was entirely different,.

Tana433 Thu 21-Nov-19 21:59:40

Bit disappointing to be honest. Not exactly believable was it?!

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Thu 21-Nov-19 22:13:08

I agree Tana433

myusernamewastakenbyme Thu 21-Nov-19 23:03:09

I missed last nights episode...can someone briefly explain what happened to Des please.

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Fri 22-Nov-19 09:43:18

His back was broken by a folding chair . Apparently , according to the big boss, they do that in Syria. Big boss and 2 or 3 thugs caught him in a lock up .

dottypotter Fri 22-Nov-19 14:39:49

It was ok but abit unrealistic that she would inject him in the leg and he would die and nobody would notice.

Also her boss knew her daughter was pregant so buying a pram was abit obvious still never mind it bought attention to cold call scamming so thats good.

WeWantSweet Fri 22-Nov-19 21:16:22

It required suspension of belief and was a bit bonkers but I think it was original and multilayered and the actor who played Wiley deserves props.

stumbledin Fri 22-Nov-19 22:29:50

I just dont understand why you cant have a thriller without some body count.

The plot set up could have allowed for all sorts of cat and mouse twists and turns.

And I thought the speech about having to been lied to by the priest about being good and doing good for others was the right way, but in reality just meant you were shat all over was great. But however strong her ange and resentment would that turn her into a murderer.

Not sure I understood the ending either. Did she get off because everyone thought oh she's just the carer (who happened to have kidnapped the person she was responsible for).

Another of those your parents f*ck you up and you then do the same to your children.

But interesting that all the women just left! smile

coldfeetallthetime Fri 22-Nov-19 23:12:46

It doesn’t compete with the likes of The Capture but it was enjoyable watching. I’m just finishing off now.

Can’t believe she’s kidnapped Granny shock

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 22-Nov-19 23:24:23

So June ruined the daughters wedding day but making her dad do the speech that he was a fraudste

Des died in a folding chair

Mr big was killed in the pool

Wifey left Riley

Daughter hated June

Granny was ok smile

Last 5 mins and not a proper ending

So she got her money. Walked away free and mr Wiley waited for the police to be banged up ?

coldfeetallthetime Fri 22-Nov-19 23:33:48

How mad is the dad? And a bit like a child as well. Ripping the sleeves off the dress hmm

coldfeetallthetime Fri 22-Nov-19 23:35:42

Is it just me or does Sally Lindsay only have two facial expressions?

icelollycraving Sat 23-Nov-19 06:43:48

It was enjoyable dross. It started really promisingly but the last episode entirely suspended belief.
I don’t think she would have ruined the wedding.
The house was fab.
All the cards given with loads of money on, no pin given, you’d need quite a lot of contactless payments to whittle through that amount grin

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 23-Nov-19 08:34:15

Yes I said to df about the lack of pin

coldfeetallthetime Sat 23-Nov-19 14:15:54

I thought that about the pin too and no idea why they wouldn’t just have him shout out a number as he walked away or something.

Maybe we were supposed to think that because she’d used his cards in the past she’d know it as he uses all the same ones or something?

Overthinking it I know.

GoldenFlaps Mon 02-Dec-19 13:26:14

Maybe the pin number was a detail too far.

I thought it started off well but got too unbelievable.
