I liked the first show, I cant work out if the musical score is clever (evil song words) or irritating (seems loud and sometimes overpowering for the scene). Good to see 'Martyn' again, haha (The Bridge) amongst other characters from Broadchurch and Fortitude. We will definitely watch the series, main actress if very good!

Yeah, great show, Daz.  :thumb:  But I wouldn't have called the music 'loud'??  (Maybe you're just getting old and crabby?? :P )

 

Main actress - you mean Sandra Oh ... or the contract killer?  I agree with Fred - I think others could've played Sandra Oh's character better.  But the contract killer is sensational!  :)

I suspect they were trying to ensure an American audience

She's just so "meh...." cant act all that well, annoying nuances from her Grey's Anatomy character, nothing to look at.....

Firstly she’s Canadian. So how that helps Americans relate I’m not so sure. She’s also won Golden Globes, Emmy’s and Screen Actor Guild awards. 

Sorry you find her “nothing to look at”. The women in your life would be so proud. 

I found her very good in the role and her acting supported the quirkiness of Jodie Comer’s character very well.

Shes not exactly unkown in the US. 10 seasons on Greys anatomy would probably help them relate. not to mention the GG's emmys etc

I just don't have an appreciation for what she does......Although, trying to be objective about this, I suppose she played the character well - pretty ditzy, coming a bit more "hardcore"

 

....I just don't like the character I suppose.

 

The show was entertaining enough though

I loved the main actress' Jodie Comer's performance, very good/psychotic with some hilarious moments ('you smell like cabbage!!'...boogly eyes).

 

The relationship with Kim Bodnia's character was also very intriguing, Bodnia at his usual excellence.

 

But agree, Oh's character was at odds with the rest, IMO and the 'I think I just tried to fart and accidently followed through' facial expression actually grates with me, haha. Still very watchable and I assume a second series to come.
