I had questions, but liked that it was a very different watch and would recommend for that reason alone.

Finished it and enjoyed it.
The ending was a bit meh but realistic.
I would recommend it.
In awe of those computer whizzes as a complete technophobe.

Anyone else struggling to watch this? Buffering constantly! Wondering if someone has hacked More4 😊

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!

Not sure if this helps, but think of the coding as a car engine, that means you can use the car, same with us using the tablets or phones for mumsnet, the coding is the engine of the program, that allows us to use the website etc

I loved it. Having previously worked in social media, and can code, i thought it was very realistic. Things happened in the right time frames, if that makes sense? Not all fast paced when work like that isnt? Iyswim.
Given it is set a year from now, it seemed very much prediction wise to be on point and an insight as to what goes on that we might not be aware of. For example all the attacks that are foiled that we dont know about, other than x number of attacks were stopped this year. Same for the masks. Shopping for them is again on the rise. Some people have decided to wear them permanently like in other countries it is the norm. Not everyone was wearing them so I felt it was very reflective of current times.

So the question is, do I keep all of my videos /CDs/cassette tapes etc 🤔? I have always felt like we could be thrust back into the dark ages and I can't live without music.
I thought it was extremely realistic.

Another one disappointed with the ending. It was really good although Simon Pegg's hair upset me.

Hang on, it just stopped at the end of episode 6- surely it can't just end like that!?

Half way through episode 4 and DP and I will probably binge watch to the end tonight.

Would normally think this would be my thing but really enjoying something a bit different to the usual formulaic dramas and I love the scenes which show how their brains process information and identity discrepancies.

I've finished it now. I was prepared to love it, it's exactly my sort of thing, but I found it really disappointing. Episode 6 should have been Episode 1 and the story been about the escalation from there. Too slow for me.

I thought it was fab.
As an ex SW developer, (who also has a relative who works at GCHQ), I am looking forward to the next episode.

Oh I want to watch this but is it hard to follow ?

No, it's not.

Just bear in mind that some things are representative (like the imaginary scenes when they are searching through computer numbers) and you'll be fine.

Yeah, it really didn't feel like fiction.

Just finished it.
It's good - won't do any spoilers but it made me think.

’ve finished them all. I liked that it was introverted rather than punchy and dramatic.

Didn’t mind the build up of lesbian action and glad they didn’t kill one of them off.

Was interesting re the zeitgeist of letting the public get used to being lied to being more important to them than the lies themselves. And the theme of knowing the outcomes in advance of decisions made by the enemy.

The comment by the Russians about isolating Britain brought Brexit to mind.

Fiction, not so much (I thought).

I liked that there were women leads.

And like I said, gin.

Font worry swashbuckled Russia won't be seeing anything it hasn't thought of before. Maybe by the end of this series we'll all be a lot more aware of how Russia has infiltrated governments and institutions across the West. They're not doing it for fun.

Yes, you are probably right.

I am about to start episode six so let's see... 🙂

U thought was like a second-rate Spooks.

My god I fucking LOVE Spooks! Such good TV.

It's so funny watching it now and seeing them use such clunky tech doing surveillance too.

Reminded me how long ago it was actually made.

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.
