- 'Where Is Jessica Hyde?'
The first series was some of the best telly ever! The cinamatography was worth watching it for alone. Here’s hoping for the same colour-saturated genius!
Just getting to the end of the last series of Breaking Bad, so I might well watch the first series again. Once I’m done with all this football 😀Posted 3 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
The cinamatography was
quite repetitive. All stills-style long shots or slow tracking shots. Lovely to look at with some striking shots (walking away from explosion that almost catches her, crop fields etc) but overdone. This may be due to me watching the entire series in one sitting on 4OD, though 🙂 .
Not sure there were that many twists though (wont discuss for risk of spoilers). Really enjoyed it though and hoping the sequel lives up to it.
i can’t find a decent series”
seen the original “The Bridge” scandinavian drama?Posted 3 years agomartinhutchSubscriber
Thinking about it, some of it was very very wrong indeed
I coped with that bit, just about. By the time we got into the school, that was it for me.
Just seemed to me that the level and setting of the violence was there to differentiate it from every other thriller/chase type drama and get it into the papers/conversation.
But I’m loving Fargo, where you also have a sociopathic emotionless killer and graphic violence. So what’s the difference?Posted 3 years ago
I loved it too. Really hoping the second series can be as good if not better. It’s often tricky though when a first series relies on people not really knowing what’s going on. The risk is that they try and recreate that in later series by making up silly things – call it the Lost syndrome.Posted 3 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
The school scene was genuinely shocking
which is a credit to the film makers, and IMHO down to the low key way it was shot and the lack of emotion from the shooter. We Need to Talk About Kevin had a similar scene which was far less distrurbing because it was more stylised and sensational.
It’s not a patch on Fargo though, that has been brilliant.
watched the first episode, thought it was quite good but had no interest in the characters developing or watching the rest. Fun that we dont all like the same things.Posted 3 years ago
First episode of Fargo I’ve watched. Can’t say I was that bought into it but I guess that starting there maybe wasn’t the right way to go about it. Will have to try it from the start as people do seem to rate it.
Back to Utopia, the trailer has really reminded me how much I enjoyed the first series.Posted 3 years agochewkwMember

It did get a lot of complaints about the violence, especially after the School scene as it was just after an incident in America.
People do complaints a lot for no good reasons don’t they. FFS! Go watch XXX-factor will they … 🙄
As for Fargo’s ending it’s a bit of anti-climax. Not funny at all. 😡Posted 3 years ago
