    A new show from HBO and another silly premise.

    One day 1 in 50 of the worlds population disappears. Poof, just like that. Wan minute their there next minute, gone.

    Three years later is where this story stsrts.

    Only seen the pilot and it was a bit of a slow burner. It does have strangeness galore though. It's also very well made so I'll stick with it.

    This has actually developed into a very good show. It's pretty ****ed up but the cast is excellent and the character development is extremely interesting

    Christopher Eccleston plays a particularly mental minister. .

    I have watched the first six episodes Aldo. It gets better as it goes on. There's a lot of talk of them pulling the plug on it after the first season as it is so bleak. Makes True Detective seem like The Mighty Boosh at times:emoticon-0105-wink: Justin Theroux is excellent in it.

    Did you ever watch The Returned Aldo? Leftovers is kind of like it in reverse.

    I watched it from the start Mo. It's pretty freaky . Channel 4 will be showing the second series sometime soon I hear.

    Tell you what's really freaky mate I went on the proxy thread today to try and give Hoopy's reaction to the reinstatement. I just can't do it anymore<laugh> I tried about three times, but proxy Hoopy has somehow been exorcised or something.

    I shall try and give it a watch mate. I still haven't seen that Mr Robot one that you recommended, I noticed it's showing on Netflix next week so I'll let you know what I think. Looking forward to seeing it.
