I want to switch off, it is so realistic and painful, you know its going to end badly, have switched on mumsnet so I can detach.

ToutFucker Tue 14-Jul-09 21:44:08

I am, and it is making me very sad and anxious

squeaver Tue 14-Jul-09 21:44:30

Me too. Dh and I both agree - don't think we can watch it to the end.

jkklpu Tue 14-Jul-09 21:44:30

should do the same, really but also have to finish polishing shoes and get stuff ready for work/nursery tomorrow
fab cast - I LOVE Anna Maxwell Martin

squeaver Tue 14-Jul-09 21:45:38

And DH has just explained to me how a "discounted mortgage" works. I feel sick.

rookiemater Tue 14-Jul-09 21:46:37

DH wants to watch until end and it was my idea to switch it on, I hate it when I get tied up in these things.

Don't usually watch anything that finishes later than 10 but paper gave it a great review so gave it a try, even though missed first 10 mins

argh wanted to watch this and just switched on. can anyone give me a v quick precis of the story so far please? smile

I am hiding on here too cringing at it. It is soo real!

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:47:41

how does it work?

i know this isn't going to end well. I do not like Dominic Cooper's character, very annoyed as loved him in Mamma Mia!

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:48:45

sorry that question was to sqeaver.

ToutFucker Tue 14-Jul-09 21:49:04

Yes, Anna M-M is always brilliant

Dominic Cooper is very good in this too

angelene Tue 14-Jul-09 21:50:49

Sarah Harding was hilariously awful though!

rookiemater Tue 14-Jul-09 21:52:21

OOh yes Sarah H was shockingly bad

ToutFucker Tue 14-Jul-09 21:54:09

yes, I tried really hard to give Sarah H a fair chance but she was awful

the hair extensions just made me larf too

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:55:13

her hair looked plastic shock

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:55:17

Nan - just like they've found out. First year, you pay very small amounts then it goes up dramatically.

Horrendous.

foxinsocks Tue 14-Jul-09 21:56:05

which one is which

loved the daughter (of the wanky banker)

squeaver Tue 14-Jul-09 21:56:09

Agree on the hair. Looked like dd's Girls World.

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:56:21

it's very realistic. saw the bloke with the 2 kids on breakfast news this morning and he said that most of it was improvised.

NanBullen Tue 14-Jul-09 21:57:05

do not like the irish banker

foxinsocks Tue 14-Jul-09 22:01:56

ah ok got who is who

I'd sell the car

frecklyspeckly Tue 14-Jul-09 22:17:40

how grim is this , the wanky banker not fit to polish perfect Pikes shoes!!

Watched this last night and don't usually watch anything past 10 either but was glued to it. Very depresssing and scarily real. Sarah Harding wasn't very good was she?
We are hoping to buy a house next year through a key worker scheme as i am a teacher and went to bed worrying about it after watching it.
