    Can't see a thread on this...

    Big cast, looks big budget....only watched episode 1...but not blown away by it so far.

    Nicole Kidman is trying out a new accent along with a new face....

    Its on Amazon prime.

    Just watched first two episodes, it feels like a 3/5 so far, but a very watchable and glamorous 3/5?? :p

    Same. Great cast. Easy watch and enjoyable. Enough interest to stick with it.

    I'm watching this at the moment. I've watched them all so far so I'll see it through. Not brilliant, but easy enough watching.

    I'm completely bored with it now after six episodes

    Wife and I like different types of series, thought this might be one would would both like, turns out we both thought it was boring, stopped watching after a couple of episodes, back to The Last Kingdom for me, and whatever for her.

    2 episodes in, I hope I haven't seen the best of it.

    Some enjoyable characters but it's just a mess. And what the hell did Kidman do to her face? It looks like bad CGI or something.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,472 ✭✭✭ Bawnmore

    I actually don't mind it too much (the show, not Nicole Kidmans face). I'm definitely not dying to watch it once it's released, but I'll watch the last 2 episodes for sure. With only 2 episodes left, the next 2 kind of have to move quickly.

    Is there a way to add spoiler tags to something in this new version of boards?

    First two or so episodes piqued my interest but by #6 it's proving to be not very good.

    As posters have said, I'll watch till the end but the last two need something amazing to rescue this from it's own arse.

    And yeah, what has Kidman done to her face?? DuckDuckGo springs to mind.

    Final episode aired in the last couple of days. Overall, worth a watch, but I'd be surprised if it got a second series. Some interesting ideas, but kind of poorly executed.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,472 ✭✭✭ Bawnmore

    Yano I actually didn't mind it in the end. I thought the last episode was kind of exactly what I expected it to be and I didn't love it or hate it. I dunno where'd they'd even go with a 2nd season if they wanted to.

    I had read the book so watched the first episode but it did not grab me at all. I don't know why there would be a second series: it's a complete story.
