Anyone on this? It's a co-production of BBC and Netflix.

I am halfway through.  Great so far.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Solid and tense show. Great so far.

I actually didn't realised until after that Richard Madden was in GoT, completely forgot that he was Rob Stark.

Anyway, great show!

I clicked this thread thinking "There's no freakin way hef's starting a thread about the Whitney Houston movie", glad I was right :lol
Checking this out though.
I wouldn't want somebody with 18 kids to mow my damn lawn, based on a longstanding bias I have against crazy fucks.

Having said that, it's not a completely awful film.  It's not GOOD, mind you, but no worse that average.

Perfect descriptive! This show was so good, only 6 episodes but each ep was long in length and better as it went on...LOVED IT!
On a light hearted side note: I wish someone would count how many times the word  “ma’am” was used throughout the season...SHEESH!

I loved it - a lot of the action and/or police negotiation scenes were so intense and suspenseful.  I was on the edge of my seat a few times, wondering what was going to happen.

Finished. 

Man, that was great.  I actually love that it was only 6 episodes.  Short, sweet, over. 

Pretty intense, as well.

Through 4 episodes and what I like is that I’ve yet to really put together what is exactly happening as far as ‘who’ is responsible for the speech bombing and with the main character himself.

I watch SO many freaking shows that more often than not I can piece this stuff together. This show has done a good job of keeping the mystery alive.

Will watch final two episodes tonight

 :lol  no kidding. Especially since to my American ears it sounded like ‘Mom’.  So it was just a bunch of people saying ‘mom’ to one another over and over.

Great show though. Really well done.

...And just finished the series last night with the wife. Really well done, we didn't see the twist at the end coming at all.
