Apologies if there’s already a thread on Back, but I couldn’t see one!

Is anyone else watching this? I spotted the new series was on, then binge-watched the first series on All4 last week. I’m now in series 2, episode 3.

I have to say I’m finding it really amusing - and can’t decide whether Robert Webb’s character is slightly sinister or a good guy!

We binged season two. It's fantastic and so funny.

We binged it.

I still don't know whether Robert Webb is an evil genius, but I bet S3 is him and David Mitchell teaming up against their other sibling.

The scene at the very beginning of series 1 makes me think Robert Webb’s character is a bit evil (where the passenger falls ill on the plane and he stands up claiming to be a doctor). But perhaps he is medically qualified and genuinely tried to save him but couldn’t? Hmm!

I can’t believe I missed this series the first time round, it’s great.

Oh and Geoff is hilarious! grin

Bingewatched - enjoyed very much but who is the pregnant sibling at the end? Was she in series 1 or seen earlier on? Is it Alice Lowe and who is Joanna? Thanks in advance flowers

I liked it.

The pregnant one at the end is a new character who is “back” I think.

How did I not know about this show before? Did it fly under the radar?! Just binged series 1 and love it, very dark and funny

Series 2 is even better imho, it really hits its stride. Enjoy.

What is this show similar to? Just trying to work out if I should watch it.

Will I be able to get past thinking of them as just being Mark & Jez?!

I suppose it’s a little like cuckoo but a bit blacker.

So, so funny.

@covetingthepreciousthings if you liked Peep Show I think you’ll enjoy Back. Give it a go, you won’t regret it! smile

Yes I hadn't realised what it was about and then saw a clip.

I binge watched this too.

I'm thinking of setting up a stash of Hedge Vodka for my daily walk.
