    We guessed nearly all of it pretty quickly. Thought he'd killed the daughter rather than the show liar, but otherwise were spot on. It had its moments. They really shouldn't have proper actors alongside them tho, they are so shown up.

    Didn't like the shoe one....it's the only thing they've done that's ever bored me.

    Rather loved that, though I'm a Shakespeare nerd. Not at all dark, admittedly.

    It wasn't my favourite episode plot-wise but I'm in awe of their creativity and execution

    I think more things should be made in iambic verse.

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    I got round to watching this at the weekend, a great start to the series :cool:

    I've also been re-watching Psychoville recently too. It's interesting to see the inspiration for Inside No. 9 in that (the episode with David and Maureen in the flat).

    Seems like they'll run out of jobbing British actors you vaguely remember from something else before they'll run out of plot ideas.

    That was the first episode the wife has watched. She was skeptical from my description by in the end it made her have a little tear in the eye.

    Another brilliant episode last night. Gotta watch it again to see how it all fits together.

    Definitely the best thing on TV at the moment.

    After this thread I watched the first two from series one. Gave up half way through episode 3. Are other series better? Are there particular episodes that stand out? I like the premise, and it does seem fairly solid, if a bit slow (but that's the style I know). . . just not quite doing it for me as of yet.

    I think if you were not fussed from s1 then you will remain not fussed.

    That said, this latest series is superb

    I am shocked and surprised.

    To be fair I was sewing during the first two, so I had something else to occupy my mind at the same time. The third didn't enjoy that luxury.

    I would say "The 12 Days of Christine" is a particular standout (series 2 ep 2). It's quite different from the usual eps (which imho are great,anyway) and the nearest recent comparable standout from an anthology series would be Black Mirror's "San Junipero"...

    Fantastic series and very very talented chaps. Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, I salute you!

    Slow? Everything's done and dusted in half an hour. They don't have time to be slow.

    Once again, I loved it....so cleverly written and executed ( see what I did there!) ;)

    Watched that again the other night and it was proper harrowing. Great telly that makes you think and is entertaining at the same time.

    The subtleties are great as well, the characters and references are like people you know, or have met before.

    It's hard to get a good balance of humour and sadness but they manage to do it to a tee.
