Did anyone else watch the first episode of this Japanese/UK thriller last night ? I did manage to stick it out to the end, but found the format really hard to keep up with, so don't think I will bother with the rest of the series. :td:

I found it intriguing, so I'll be sticking with it. The trailers for future episodes look as if there's more action to come; the first episode really just set up the story. Once you straighten out that the really narrow screen format is the past, and the animation is for rumours or second hand information, it's not too hard to follow.

Will Sharpe, who is currently appearing in the comedy Defending the Guilty on BBC2, was a surprise - he looks like someone with a good future in acting.

I found it an interesting format, and I’ll be tuning in next week. I think it’s the kind of programme where you have to really concentrate rather something that you can watch with one eye on something else.

it's yet another that i'm recording for a binge watch. this is the sort of thing that we would rather not have a gap between episodes. you can probably see the lot on player straight away but we go for delayed gratification.

Apparently some of this was filmed on my road, I just discovered. Not sure I can be bothered to watch just to front door spot... but it looks quite good.

we finally got round to watching this yesterday. we thought it was rather good.
the 'cinematography' (can you say that for tv?) was rather beautiful and we liked the way they did the 'previously' part at the beginning of following episodes - which we don't usually watch. i thought the rooftop dance in the last episode was an eye catching innovation, too.
will sharp is just brilliant.

I gave up when I hit a solid patch of subtitled Japanese, I really can no longer cope with subtitles, unless I can get the gist of the spoken language.

my problem is I just can't read a strip in one go, I have to move my head and it takes longer than the words are on screen - a wider screen doesn't necessarily help, as I end up looking like the the classic Wimbledon head switch as I try to actually see all the characters

Given how good optical character recognition (OCR) is now, someone should come up with a subtitle reading app, the audio description is overkill for me
