    I enjoyed it without loving it.

    I loved this.. Such a binge worthy series.. I’m still undecided how I feel about the ending though

    Watched the first two episodes last night, although I didn't realise I had, got distracted at the end of the first episode and missed that it finished and the second one had begun. It's... still getting into gear I think.

    I really loved this. Such layered dark comedy. The chemistry between the two lead roles were brilliant as well. Not sure how I'd feel about a second season though, but considering some of the loose ends, I wouldn't mind a one off episode.

    This was fantastic and it drives me nuts that so many people are like "ah I don't have time for tv shows", this one is literally the same length as a feature film.

    Must-see tv.

    I think the first few episodes get too caught up in the awkwardness and oddity of the two leads, but after that it develops into a really interesting, layered story. I also don't want a second series, it's perfectly contained in those 8 episodes.

    Only just found out that Graham Coxon wrote the score for this, including some songs he wrote specially for it. I like it even more now. The music is such an important part of it.

    It was ok, not as great as everyone is making out, got better towards the end.

    There's no fondness there towards any of the lead characters to make me what to see a season 2 and think they ended season 1 (and the show in general) perfectly at the end.

    I liked this a lot. I suppose having some level of familiarity with existential nihilism will help you view this one in a favourable light. I also really liked the dynamic between the two leads, it felt sincere.

    I struggled for probably two or three episodes myself, trying to place her! She looks different in a normal world setting. The guy I just knew I had seen before, would've never in a million years been able to place him in the Black Mirror episode.

    Really loved this, one of the most touching things I've watched. Both character's really develop as the story goes on so I'd definitely say watch further than the first two episodes.

    Yeah the characters start off as quite irritating but as the story develops it really grows on you.

    Watched this a few weeks ago. Really enjoyed it.

    Netflix fecked me over though and instead of 'playing next episode' it was 'playing next most popular episode'

    So I started on episode 7, then watched half of 6 before I worked out what was going off. Still enjoyed it.

    Nice was a time filler the first series so look forward to this one
