    I watched this after seeing your thread. It was absolutely brilliant and will only get better. Cheers for the thread Aldo I would have missed it otherwise. The Cohl character is an absolute belter. I bet he shags Woody's missus.

    Good init Mo . I said in the movie board that MM has been brilliant for the last year or two and he shows it in this programme . Mind you the writer has done him a lot favours aa the dialogue is outstanding especially between him and WH .

    Im already hooked and can't wait for the next episode .

    The dialogue is brilliant. "I'm the police. I can do terrible things to people with impunity." <laugh> Only thing is MM keeps reminding me of former Secretary of State for Scotland Jim Murphy;)

    That washed up alcoholic look is a prerequisite for the position of Scottish secretary .

    I've watched the first and have the other 2 ready to go, just brilliant stuff. I've read that it is a one off and that the 2nd season which is planed will be a completely new story and that the writers are hoping to pull in big names again.

    I watched episode four a few weeks ago and I was a bit wrecked to be honest and kept falling asleep. So i waited for the fifth one (I think it was delayed for a week) and watched them both last Friday. They were superb. Just got a hold of episode six today so I'm going to watch it tonight. MM and Woody are getting better as it goes on.

    Have you ever watched House of Cards Aldo? I watched the second season/series on Netflix last week. Another excellent wee show.

    House of cards . I watched the first few episodes of serious one Mo . Maybe up to the fifth one and got bored with it
    Kevin Spacey started to annoy me for some reason .
