    Has anybody watched this?

    It's on Netflix. Only 8 episodes at around 20 minutes each so you can fly through it. I started watching it at 1 in the morning today and rattled through it in one sitting. Highly recommend it. Funny, mad, with good characters (and performances) and it gets pretty dark as well.

    "James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father."

    This is the trailer. It makes it look like more of a comedy than it actually is, though.

    The trailer actually looks quite good. It's going on my list.

    I'd forgot about that. The wee creepy guy from Black Mirror is a great wee actor.

    Got 2 episodes left

    Brilliant piece of work. Was just using it to kill time as the episodes are so short but i really love the way they have done it.

    Funny, Dark, brutal, emotive, and weird :50:

    Watched the first two - definitely worthwhile.

    It's not exactly a 'comedy' but, although extremely dark, did have a few (literally) LOL moments
    I can tell it's going to go by awfully quickly though, more's the pity.

    Funking quality.

    Hope they don't do a second series as this was pretty perfect.

    Completely agree.

    No need for a season 2, abeit I reckon they’ll make one.

    Nowhere near as good as it's been made out to be. Disappointed.

    It's brilliant. I watched it from start to finish in one day when it was on all4. Delighted its been picked up by Netflix, it could have easily slipped under the radar.

    Watched this the past 2 nights, was superb. Didnt know what to expect from the trailer but it didn't disappoint, funny and dark. Have to agree with Honda on the ending though, that's the only part I thought was a let down.
