I've sky+ it, I realised I had the book too sat unread on my shelf. I will end up watching the programme first no doubt.

have read all the books. can do horrific violence in literature but was a bit shocked at certain points last night. chicken that i am!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 17:30:56


so i am to expect a bit of violence tonight

assume thats the rape?

might have to watch now while on lappy, we ALL know woman can multitask grin

elliepac Thu 18-Jun-09 17:38:11

more than just the rape. Couple of real 'jumpy' moments or that could just be me being a big girl.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 17:49:03

watching now

couldnt wait till tonight

seen the shooting of arm/leg

<blonde isnt scared yet>

elliepac Thu 18-Jun-09 17:51:03

oh dear, I think I may now be outed as an utter wimp.blush

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 17:53:14


you are a wimp!!! grin

elliepac Thu 18-Jun-09 17:55:26

[elliepac skulks away with her tail between her legs vowing to man up a little bit]

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 17:58:12

you need to watch scum

now that even made blonde shudder a bit grin

tryingtocookacurry Thu 18-Jun-09 17:58:28

I have read all her books too - thought it was good last night! smile

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 17:59:17

were you hiding behind a cushion tryingtocookacurry grin

elliepac Thu 18-Jun-09 18:03:30

maybe I should have eased myself in a little bit first to scary/gory stuff. Will go watch some peppa pig, then take it up a level to power rangers and then, if I am feeling really brave, might try the Bill. That'll man me up but in a gentle learnig curve type of way and next week will not jump like a wimp. grin

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 18:13:28


now i find night garden scarey and very freaky!!! grin

im 42mins in and cant say i have jumped yet

<blonde waits tapping fingers impatiently for scary/violent bits>

Wilts Thu 18-Jun-09 18:16:01

I love her books but am too much of a wuss to watch the show blush I can only just cope with the violence in the books grin

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 18:23:26

the boos descrive VERY well

im on last 5mins now - just ff through sky+ the last ads, and had a warning saying strong scenes of sex and violence shock

<blonde watches>

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 18:29:38

all finished

i didnt think it was that bad - was well acted though

maybe i watch too much violence?

Wilts Thu 18-Jun-09 18:33:28

If you don't think it was too bad maybe I should try it, I can always fast forward the worst parts blush

Lots of skullduggery in it I assume wink

tiredemma Thu 18-Jun-09 19:28:44

Tom Hardy. Yes please.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 18-Jun-09 20:11:27

wilts - honestly there are no real bad bits

have a watch and see

stressed2007 Thu 18-Jun-09 20:59:17

just watched the 2 episodes on sky+ - really gripping stuff. Very watcheable.

elliepac Thu 18-Jun-09 21:04:13

it was the tv moment that made me jump most blondes and as for the night garden, i want some of those drugs that those people who wrote that were on at the time grin. There was a reason i used peppa pig as my induction to scariness, night garden would come AFTER the Bill.

Rollergirl1 Thu 18-Jun-09 21:09:34

Am really pissed off i missed this last night. Read reviews in papers today and apparently you either love or hate tom hardy. Would watch the repeat tonight but psychoville on at 10.00 and not missing that for nothing.

I'm not easily scared either so anxious to watch.
