Six parts , channel four
Simon peg is in it .
Looks ok so far
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 21:19
Pegg rather !
Piggywaspushed · 30/06/2022 21:23
It's lost me 80s...
SpookyMargot · 30/06/2022 21:25
Really enjoying it so far.
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 21:28
I won't understand it either !
Dh will pretend too .. lol
I know nothing about coding.
Piggywaspushed · 30/06/2022 21:32
The camera is annoying me. Stop following everyone around!! Handheld cameras were literally invented in the 50s!!
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 21:36
The music was annoying me too , although it's stopped
The idea of showing how it used to be is clever.
Gr33ngr33ngr4ss · 30/06/2022 21:38
It's terminally dull!
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 21:41
They usually make films or dramas about things that might happen in the future , which makes me think this could be the next thing!...
Dh reckons he could ' live without the internet ' !! Ha ha ha. We are all slaves to it now

Just wondering if anyone at GCHQ locked their computers whilst away at their desks?
Bit depressing to see masks being worn - is this supposed to be set a year from now?
Fairyliz · 30/06/2022 22:03
Blimey that was boring.
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 22:09
It's set in 2024
Why did the main character call her dad by his first name ?
The actress actually learnt coding apparently !
Xmasbaby11 · 30/06/2022 22:10
So boring- too many close ups of people writing code and talking about sandboxes.
Can't really warm to the main character either.
It's not for me!
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 22:11
I quite liked it and heard of sand box on Mumsnet of all places ( although no idea what it is or what coding involves)
Was funny seeing an old telephone book too!
The man in the cobra meeting was horrible.. a suspect I bet!
lissie123 · 30/06/2022 22:16
@cakeorwine yes they do lock their computers whilst away from their desks
Fuckitydoodah · 30/06/2022 22:18
I really enjoyed it
Pixies74 · 30/06/2022 22:19
I liked it! Though had to concentrate quite hard 😁
How would the second virus been activated? Through a link to a FB page? Where would that link have been? It bugs me when I don't understand all the details
cakeorwine · 30/06/2022 22:19
Curious as to how they got rid of Johnson...
the80sweregreat · 30/06/2022 22:20
The American lady in green was also dodgy too
Swashbuckled · 30/06/2022 23:05
I really liked it. Liked the main actress too. Have just finished the second episode on C4OD.
WhoWants2Know · 01/07/2022 19:55
The concept was good, but it really dragged in places and the music got oppressive.
It really did make me wonder how much of what we read on social media may have been invented in a cubicle in Russia.
the80sweregreat · 01/07/2022 20:12
Watching episode two now ,
It is good , even if my knowledge of things like this is pretty scant ( non existent)!
Swashbuckled · 01/07/2022 20:18
Just finished episode 3. It’s completely set in Russia; the plot thickens and the Russian scenes are interesting. It's getting better with each episode.
Anyone else wondering whether this will give Russia ideas…? 🤔
JoanWilderbeast · 01/07/2022 21:17
The beginning threw me, but I'm really glad I stuck with it. I thought the lead actress was really good and found I teared up a bit. I also loved the music. Won't binge, just watch episodes I've put on record.
Swashbuckled · 01/07/2022 21:26
^ I am bingeing with gin 🥴
eddiemairswife · 01/07/2022 21:41
U thought was like a second-rate Spooks.
