The guy being American in the second one was central to the story, though.

There are three set in England. The fourth one has an English lead. The fifth makes sense being American as they're always getting into wars. 

IMO it didn't lose anything. I thought it would prior to watching, but the show had the same look and feel to the previous seasons.

I'm 100% certain that wasn't the reasoning behind it.  :lol:

Erm, if you were this kid, you'd just phone the f***ing police.

Episode 3? You might think different at the end.
Blimey that was a journey. Didn't know where that was going.

This whole show is one of the very best things on TV IMO. Stark, surprising, charming, hopeful, grim, funny and far too real for comfort.

watched 2 & 3 of S1, decent enough but not incredible TV so far

the 3rd ep was the best of the bunch imo
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Episode 6. :sweetjesus:

Fasted 90 minutes of TV I've watched in a long time. After a quick look at IMDB too I noticed the actress who played the blonde detective also played The Waif in Game of Thrones.

One of the few Netflix shows I've not binged. Gonna do episode 4 today. Feel like each episode needs a bit of room to breathe.

Only watched episodes 1-3 so far, liked the first 2 without finding them outstanding and episode 3 was tense as f***.

Exit Music For A Film at the end of ep 3 was perfect as well, what a moment that was.

Thought 5 was really good. Best American one. Good balance between story and style. Not like the first two which were just so weak. Just started 6,  Kelly Macdonald.  :smitten: :rose: :smitten:

6 was good but not great, thought the story was potentially the best of the bunch(although the end puzzled me) but let down by some wooden acting and too dragged out. Bloody Bmw advertising can do one too. Episodes 3/4/5/6 you can easily relate to our own every day stuff which just makes it all the more relevant.

My ratings: Ep 1: 3 / Ep 2: 4 / Ep 3: 8.5 / Ep 4: 8 / Ep 5: 8.5 / Ep 6 : 6.5

I think the whole series has confirmed for me that Brooker's writing style usually works best when it's put across in such a way where it's serious but not too serious. The black comedy in Ep 3 was outstanding. When it gets proper serious sometimes it works and sometimes it's just ok.

I have to admit that I really don't like the whole technophobe showing up the technophile because they're a know it all geek who don't live in the real world, in that whole 'Mister Scientist!' South Park way. It's a bit cheap imo, and a bit of an odd thing to come from Charlie Brooker.

Watched all of these now, really good without bowling me over.  Preferred 3 and 6 to the others but they all had good elements.

I think I must be the only one who didn't enjoy 6. 4's been the stand out one for me so far.
