    I started watching this this week and I am really enjoying it. If you like The Preacher you'll probably like this. It's based on a 4 issue comic by Grant Morrison, and funnily enough is drawn by the same guy that did The Preacher comic.

    Nick Sax is an alcoholic ex-cop turned hitman who lives his days with drugs and cynicism. After he is shot and left for dead, he revives while in the care of paramedics and can now see a small, blue, goofy cartoonish winged horse named Happy. Happy is the imaginary friend of a little girl named Hailey, who has been kidnapped by a deranged man dressed as Santa Claus. Happy escapes to seek Nick's help in finding her and reveals that Hailey is Nick's estranged daughter. Nick reluctantly agrees and he and his new "partner" now must work together to save her.

    One of my favourite shows lately. I've been putting off watching it due to that imaginary friend, but feck me it was brilliant. Actually the two episodes when they split up I found myself missing him from the whole show.

    The lead in this also is fecking great. One of the best performances I've seen lately. The level of depravity and brutality mixed with humour is spot on.

    Already renewed for season 2 :drool:

    @pauldyson1uk , @Dirty Schwein - get on this.

    I thought it was great, it hit that perfect spot where it was really dark but didn’t sort of cross the line where it alienates the viewer.

    I really enjoyed it also but that bit with it treading the line. What does that say about society now with that
    one incident that makes him the way he is. The microwave part
    I see it’s been renewed for another season so that’s great as I did really enjoy it.

    Some great one liners in this. The whole Chinatown scene is just brilliant, where they complain about him making offensive jokes while trying to kill him.

    Oh, and, "get it out of me" is dark af.

    Half way through it and loving it. So bloody different and weird in a good way. Plus to see Chris Maloney in such a role is a treat after Oz and Law and Order.

    I’ll be honest I had to google what you were on about, I think I must have got a cup of tea or fell asleep or something during that scene! But feck.

    What I mean is like, it was dark, gritty, silly and spectacular in a lot of ways with pretty horrid subject matter, but it didn’t step over that line for me where I lose interest because they go to a place I just don’t want to be when I’m trying to be entertained. Things like real bad sexual abuse and the like are just a nono for me when I’m watching a film or tv show.

    Flew through this last week. Wasn't expecting to be as good as it was. Lots of fun in a dark, twisted way.

    Lead actor will always be Keller from Oz to me though.

    Really enjoyed it though the style natural elements were pretty meaningless.
