Just started watching this and already most of main actors ...

Smileless2012 Thu 06-Jan-22 20:39:33

We're about to start watching it too.

Bea65 Thu 06-Jan-22 20:39:36

Should have mentioned its a thriller and people go missing..

Have watched the whole thing. It was brilliant. No spoilers but will say worth watching.

I am watching it too it’s quite violent but I want to know what happens so will carry on.
No idea how many episodes? Have seen about 10 already,

I binge watched it, I found it quite compulsive. Strong cast, good acting, I enjoyed it although I felt it was a bit far fetched at times. No spoilers, enjoy!

I'm enjoying this too but leaking it out so I'm on No 4 next.

Yes a good binge watch but lots of improbabilities - would police take it on themselves to search dodgy premises without calling for backup?

BladeAnnie Fri 07-Jan-22 07:12:40

We watched it in two nights - a real binge watch. Vegansrock we said the same about the police doing risky things without calling for backup

Agree with ALL. it's a binge watch so my weekend sortedgrin

Is this based on a book? The title sounds really familiar

Mary59nana Fri 07-Jan-22 14:51:36

Excellent binge watch

Not feeling it. But will keep with it.

Hopeless to watch if you're from the area though. They leave the Runcorn Bridge and come out in Blackpool and 2 minutes later they're in Formby.

Of course this doesn't affect most viewers but my son is less than impressed by it.

Have just finished watching this. Although we enjoyed it and thought the acting was good there were a lot of inconsistencies and lack of credibility. Won’t mention the bloopers as they would be spoilers but there were a couple in the first episode which made us question whether we wanted to watch the next one.

Having seen it was from a Harlen Coban novel I was looking forward to this.
I found it was full of inconsistencies and unanswered incidents.
I was disappointed.
My GD and her friend loved it.
I am too jaded I think.

This was brilliant and so well acted. There’s a couple more from the same writer...on Netflix. ‘Safe’ is one. We saw that. There’s another....the title name escapes me...but it’s on our list to watch.

We watched the first episode and gave up, I found it unbelievable and even though I was probably being picky couldn’t force myself to try the next episode so gave up.

NanKate Sat 15-Jan-22 09:07:37

I watched it all but had a number of criticisms, such as that ridiculous couple doing a dance scene, what was that about?

I’ve never been a fan of Eddy Izzard but I thought he was rather good in this series.

I kind of abandoned it a while ago, whilst it has a good ensemble cast, I found it rather disjointed, I may go back to it, but the longer I leave it the less I care about finding what the outcome is. I often give up on series though so not unusual for me. I watched the other Harlan Coben "The Stranger" also on Netflix, a while ago, I found that better, but similar format.
