I’ve just watched the first two episodes on SBS on demand and it’s amazing! Scary but amazing. Emma Thompson is brilliant.

Very cranky now I have to wait each week for new episodes and already disappointed it’s only a six part series.

Anybody else watching?

So good.
So depressing.
But eagerly awaiting the next one.

I binged the whole series on recent flights. It’s brilliant. And brilliantly terrifying

I promise no spoilers

I’ve watched the first one, trying to ration myself! Love Russell T Davies writing and the cast is excellent.

You know what’s funny? You watch it and then get the news in the ad break and it’s like what you just saw on the show.

We watched ep 1 last night. Too much too, too close to a form of reality.

Not for a night when you’re exhausted already and just want to veg

Loved it, had no idea what it was from the ads.  I totally got hooked in, love the family and the story.  Very scary at the same time, too close to reality.

Yes and I am trying to ration myself too.
Terrifying and true...the world seems to be spinning so fast.

That scene in the first episode where the gay brother is holding the new baby in the hospital and had a bit of a rant about all the horrible things going on in the world was so accurate and overwhelming.

I love it, but I find it very unsettling.  The music/ soundtrack makes it quite scary.

Yes watching. Liking it so far. The body dysmorphia angle is interesting. In a world tipping toward disaster, why would she think data lives forever?

I like gran when she flushed the toilet.

What happened to their Mum?

Lunafreya in ep 1 or 2 they mentioned the mum went through chemotherapy so O assume she died of cancer.
