A new series on Channel 4 about a huge conspiracy based around an unpublished graphic novel that may or may not predict the future.

Very good so far (one episode); well acted, interesting characters, confusing enough to intrigue without being off-putting.

Warning: it's occasioanlly *very* nasty - one scene involving a teaspoon was the most horrible thing I've seen on tv since probably for ever.

A friend if mine was recommending it to me; she said it was brilliant. It does sound like my cup of tea, so I'll give it a go tonight.

sounds good - love thrillers and missing spooks, so this may fill the gap! will find it on 4OD and catch up!

Bit late for that, you're living together and you've told everyone you're getting married.

No. Didnt like it and Im a horror fan .....far too graphically violent and horrible, and hard to follow. Disappointed cos I was looking forward to it.

Almost as painful as trying to watch it on 4od.

Just watched the first one over dinner. It's not too bad, so I'll watch the rest. Interestingly, it's loosely based on a true story.

Absolutely loved it! The attention to detail is phenomenal and the production is fab, the DOP is inspired, amazing shot after shot and the colourist is a genius. Love the clever use of emblems, almost Tarantino like. the welsh actress and the boy are just beautiful actors.
Classy stuff all round.

Where is Jessica Hyde?

Wacky, comedic, gruesome, and thrilling.
