I just saw a trailer for this, and thought it looked promising. It stars Chris O’Dowd and Rosamund Pike. Anyone seen it?

I’ve watched about half. It’s one of those shows where when the writing is good it’s brilliant but sometimes it’s a bit smug and trying too hard to be clever. I’m not completely sure what I think having not finished but sometimes I don’t really buy their conversations or even their relationship. And this probably won’t be popular but I’ve never seen the appeal of Chris o‘dowd, I think his acting is usually pretty flat, he has no charisma and he must be one of the luckiest people in show business honestly. Rosamund Pike I dont mind but again I’m not sure about her in this role, something feels off.

This is all sounds quite negative but there is something compelling about it, it’s a unique idea and a well crafted one. Brave for tv (has it actually been broadcast ?)I guess I should come back when I finish it.
