    It's been quite a few months since I've watched any of the episodes, so I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly, but

    I've seen him in many things, and Hamm has this crazy ability to be likeable/ attractive with a hint of slime/sleaze, kind of like a smooth piece of cheesecake that you suspect has gone a bit bad and can confirm after you take a bite. (Yet you still might be tempted to take one more bite... or at least consider it.)

    That is such a wonderful description!

    Great show. Too bad they're so slow with the production of new seasons.

    This is a big deal: Apparently Netflix just picked up the series as producer, with Brooker and his company still creating the show. So he got funding for more episodes.

    I watched two episodes and hated it.

    It's a uk thing. If a show is good, has great reviews, fans are eargerly waiting make sure to make only a mini series with less than 3 seasons and make sure the seasons are 2 years apart.

    The fans have doctor who anyway. They wouldn't mind.

    I actually enjoy it when usa picks these shows up. They produce more episodes and much faster. The quality might be a bit less though.

    I don't think Netflix is going to rush Brooker and risk losing quality. They know what they've got, and it's quite a win for them even if it's more of a niche market.

    I watched the White Bear episode, and it was pretty effective. I found it a little too intense. There's something about crowds hounding someone whose guilt or innocence is unclear that terrifies me.

    I mean, I never saw any concrete evidence presented. Nobody provided it. It's impossible for a viewer who wasn't there to know what really happened, especially when neutral observers are so cagey about details.

    I'm not sure I can watch another episode of this.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
