I did enjoy the 1st episode a lot and laughed out loud a few times but I could really do without all the PC jokes they just feel forced and unfunny but that is what you get from the BBC. Hopefully the next episode is a bit different. The drama side of it is very intriguing and I am interested to see where it goes.

The 7/10 is because tv gets graded on a curve. Well-acted. The writing in the second ep isn't up to the standard of the first, with a conventional 'tutor wins over reluctant student subplot,' 'Friendless instagram influencer finds an evening of modest happiness,' and so on. I'll drop it without regrets if the third episode isn't more like the first than the second.

Unexpectedly a great show! Perfect cast, well developed characters and a nice plot with quite a few funny twists happening. Actually the storylines aren't the most important here, it's about people and how their such a different lives crossing with each other.

That's one of few shows I am really waiting for a new episodes to be released each week. Naive, lil bit childish and optimistic, feels we have been missing this for a while.

The odd glimmer of humour, the female security guard seems the best actress. The rest of the cast is woefully underused. It reminds me of an edgy, but no so likeable Tracey Beaker series. What on earth is Walken doing in this absolute stinker of a series? The biggest mystery of 2021. Come on Merchant, you can do better than this.

Marketed as a comedy which is pretty unusual for a 60m serial. In reality it fell somewhere between drama and comedy without ticking either box convincingly. For me the world and characters didn't ring true enough for a drama and there was no real jeopardy in the dramatic story.

On the comic side there were a lot of so-so gags, but no real comic connections between the characters, many of whom were one-dimensional, Eleanor Tomlinson's Instagrammer, Darren Boyd's right wing businessman etc. Direction was flat and the pace of it too slow. Christopher Walken was wasted and needed to be much more upfront.

Might have worked better as a six episode half hour comedy with a sharper script. Well-intentioned but a bit disappointing.

The first episode is just hilarious & laugh out loud! There are also many thought provoking back stories & some heart felt moments. There is also superb acting & really great characters. The writers have really hit the jackpot here. This show has cult following all over it. Just think it would have been perfect at half hour instead of 1hour though. Highly recommended!

This...is brilliant!

The cast alone is worth the price of entry - couple that with the writing by Merchant and it's a total winner.

First couple of episodes were great (the second episode better than the first).

Massively proud of my city which hardly gets any exposure unless you count casualty or shoestring. The accents are mostly accurate too rather than sounding like a generic farmer/pirate .There's a tired old daily mail review here with the laborious term WOKE in their review ...(so boring) .. Please ignore this feeble input and make your own mind up ,plenty of good characters and laugh out loud moments .watched both episodes so far and personally can't wait for more .stephen merchant if you read this then .....well done me ol babber.

Only seen the first episode but it has good character development and seems like it'll be quite amusing as well as keeping you on the edge of your seat.

It's not bad it's easy to watch a bit silly with a diverse use of characters. Not a huge fan of all the covid talk I wanna escape in TV and film not be reminded of the dismal realities of life.

I hate my accent and generally I don't enjoy hearing it on the TV or Radio. This could be that it is either put on by a non local actor, over exaggerated or automatically makes you think of Aardman's Creature Comforts.

However, I love this program as most of the accents are pretty true and not over exaggerated.

The mix of humor, sentiment and action is great and IMO will give the series longevity.

The acting is very good especially from all the main characters. It is almost surreal seeing Hollywood A lister Christopher Walken as a passenger on a bus going through a Bristol housing estate rather than in the back of a chauffer driven gangsters limo in LA.

The views around Bristol are great to see, the camerawork is cinematic.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of this series and hopefully several more series to follow (series 2 is being filmed now).

How annoying that people have rated this low, after only watching 1 or 2 episodes! Come on, at least watch more before publishing your verdict. It's like giving up on a novel after reading the first chapter. Pfft.
