If you missed it this evening, I definitely recommend a look on 4OD. Probably my favourite one yet. I think it would have worked as a feature film - with a bit more space the issue of commercial exploitation of user-generated content could have been explored too.

Brilliant stuff, can't wait for the next one.

In reply to Jon Stewart: brilliant - the depiction of the way the technology worked, and the exploration of the characters' reactions to the issues it raised, was just genius

In reply to Jon Stewart: Really enjoyed it, very eerie though

In reply to Jon Stewart: definitely a big step up from last season's 'prime minister shags a pig' episode

Absolutely. I thought the 'memory rewind chip' thing from last series was very good though.

At least the pig was real. ;)

In reply to Jon Stewart: I'm only allowing myself one bleak channel 4 dystopian series at the moment, and even then Utopia is really messin' with my head

Ah! I am enjoying Utopia

Did anyone else notice the graphics screen Martha was working on. Is that a real piece of kit or just clever green screen compositing?
I suspect the latter as it looked like it was made of wood and there didnít seem to be any controls.

In reply to Mark Edwards:

Doubt it's a real piece of kit - it's meant to be a show about future technology...

Just why did he not need to eat? He appeared to be entirely biological. What was his power source?

...amongst other inconsistencies! However it was quite watchable.

Perhaps there was a deleted scene of him shoving double-A batteries up his bum while she slept?

In reply to digby: quite watchable? I was completely hooked, sat there with my knuckles clenched, waiting for everything to end badly

In reply to pebbles: quite blade runnerish in its way, I thought - was he a real personality or wasnt he? he certainly passed the turing test...

In reply to pebbles: I loved the ending - didn't see it coming even though it had been flagged up earlier, and it made perfect sense within the world of the plot.
