The ending....I can't help feel I missed some hidden meaning.... but I missed it big time if I did!
If you missed it then I missed it too!

Just finished the Bodyguard, meh

Started off well but then went into the realms of ridiculousness. Certainly not a patch on Line of Duty, I believe they are the work of the same creators

So.......being a massive 'Office' fan & never having seen the American version which is best?

Same. Couldn't bare to watch the American one for ages, but a mate who also loved the UK one recommended it and said it was amazing. I'm about to begin series 3 and there have been a few episodes whose plot mimics some of the story in the UK one, but apparently from here the plot lines go off and do their own thing, and new characters come in to great effect.

Watched all 8 episodes of "Killing Eve" over the last 2 days on BBC.

Quite entertaining, was told it would grab me as breaking Bad did, it didn't, its not THAT good but well worth a watch.

While the UK seems to be wanking over Jodie Whittaker's performance, I just can't warm to it. Breathless dizzy doctor.

I could however wan. oh, you know.

+1, its very very good, she plays a very good (and rather aesthetically pleasing) psychopath...

I started watching it but had to stop, it was just so fetched and it wound me up.

Wish I could list reasons (it was some weeks back) but I donít recall any, well apart form the fact she was an intelligent calculating killer on one had and infuriatingly dirt stupid on the other - which was also true of other characters

It also felt like it didnít know whether it was a bit of comic fun or a serious drama (that maybe poked fun at itself?).

I am not a fan of Jodie Whittaker at all, I think shes done ok as the Doctor, nothing more nothing less, its not the fact that its a female doctor its the fact that its her. Also the huge amount of fake Yorkshire accents by all piss me off (Brad Walsh excepted and of course JW herself who is a Yorkie).

I think part of it that I did like was that it didn't take itself overly seriously and was a comic drama.

As for far fetched....Exhibit A. Game of thrones. Exhibit B. Walking dead. Wink

tbf, while I'd agree the first couple of episodes haven't been great, they usually aren't, they usually use take a couple of episodes to establish the new characters (Dr and assistants) then pick up after that.

Well indeed, but we go into them knowing theyíre not remotely attached to reality.

And by far fetched, I meant convenient sets of circumstances, or how intelligent people do really stupid shit. Like when eveís colleague in the hat follows a supposedly ruthless assassin, laughably badly, into a night club unarmed. He works for mi5 and heís a spy, it was like heíd had a lobotomy.

Regarding liking it as a comic drama thatís fair enough, I suppose I expected something more serious, I guess. Donít know. It just felt a bit confused in my opinion.

I think it was a drama with a bit of comic interludes but I understand what you are saying, took 3 or 4 episodes for me to be bothered by the characters and yes not a lot of depth to it but I did find it entertaining. Despite several plot holes.
