Heh, looks very Shallow Grave! But yeah, some good Simm moments in the trailer. Might give this a go...

I've not seen any of this. I hope it pops up on normal telly soon... I've seen the trailer so many times, but it's just one of those stupid adverts for a channel I don't have. Bah.

I shall sit by my computer and wait to see if it appears... when I've finished watching replicated Dexter. ;)

I need something new to watch then, though, so this is definitely next on my list!

I wasn't in on time. :( Might watch Exile. If I'm honest I'll only be watching for him although I'm sure it'll be some good drama. :)

Actually, you've almost persuaded me to watch! Though I'm sure it wouldn't be as amusing as your description suggests...

So, we ended up watching it anyway! Well, the first two episodes anyway. It was kind of amusing, in a totally confusing, irritatingly over-mysterious sort of way. It kept making me giggle because it's like a serious version of 'Welcome to Night Vale'.

Also amusing that the BBC think a special warning about 'upsetting scenes' is needed for cat-drowning, which doesn't apply to all the people getting beaten up and shot in the face.

T'other half's main complaint was that the 'suddenly discovering one's partner has a mysterious other life when they reveal their new love for jazz' is a thoroughly over-used trope on TV. :lol:
