Disturbing, brutal, nerdy and visually superb, so far so good?

    My excuse is that I was watching "Stand Up Guys", which I can recommend. Was Utopia any good?

    Well I am "enjoying" it. Germ conspiracy with a modern, psycho, sadistic twist....made my toes curl with the chile/sand/bleach and spoon combo :shock:

    I've liked it so far. Visually it's excellent and I can't believe the pace they are setting with the story. If it was an American drama I would say we are at about s1e7. Eye watering stuff ;)

    I like it also, but the missus got the hump with it on the first episode cos she didn't understand it!

    I'm liking it a lot so far. The obvious influences are Misfits and maybe Heroes - but there is a lot of Grant Morrison in there too - Doom Patrol and the Invisibles...

    Visually it looks great - I'm loving the use of colour, bright acid colour instead of endless black and orange and teal http://theabyssgazes.blogspot.co.uk/2010/03/teal-and-orange-hollywood-please-stop.html

    I'm not sure what to make of it. The torture scene in the first episode seemed a bit gratuitous to me. And Becky's accent is distracting.

    The story is intriguing, the conspiracy is almost believable. But I'm still not really sure why these people are being chased for being a member of a graphic novel's fan forum.

    They may know the location of the 2nd novel that contains all the big nasty secrets The Network needs to hide?

    Whilst it isn't perfect, it is the first show on TV since Luther that has made me put my phone and ipad down and that's saying something :lol:

    I hate slasher flicks and teen gore p*rn but love the brutality in this, have felt slightly disturbed at the end of both episodes!

    I missed the first one but have seen ep 2 and 3 and really enjoying it.

    Losing interest in it now if I'm honest, I think it's trying too hard to be cool and the guy in the ill fitting leather jacket that walks round like a zombie just does my head in.

    I'm an episode behind, cba with adverts but e3 was ace, the opening scene with the LOL on the wall, brilliant and brutal yet largely suggestive.

    Don't be so harsh on Arb, he's good at one thing, don't expect he'll be taking up zumba or entering open university anytime soon.

    Hopefully I'll get chance to catch-up on this weeks episode later tonight when Mrs cookdn has headed off to bed (not her cup-of-tea).

    Series 2 of Black Mirror starts next Monday.

    or, as we discovered this week RB, short for Raisin Boy. Weird or what!
