Anybody else watching this tonight?
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
But today is a gift
That’s why it’s call the present

    Didn't realise it was on last night, I'll watch it on the internet like...was it good?

    I thought it was - I guess the first episode was quite slow burning in terms of building up a picture of what's to come...

    I think it's a perfect blend of comedy and dark drama. Vicky McClure is an excellent actress.

    I watched the first episode, which I found rather foreboding, but got the impression there's a previous series I should watch first.

    I think I saw the film when it came out. Am I right in thinking that the TV series spawned from that?

    Yeah. Might be worth watching the film again too. Though 86 was a really powerful series.
