Advertisements I did this as I made my way through Chuck last summer and it worked out well. I love to discuss shows I'm watching and seeing as how I just started this series there's no way I'm gonna be able to wait until I've seen every episode to start joining the discussions (plus I'll forget everything by then)... I figured I'd use this thread to get my thoughts out as I go and people can chime in. I am gonna put the current episode I'm up to in each of my posts so PLEASE don't refer to events beyond those points! I know it's annoying but I know absolutely nothing about this show so I'm going in spoiler free. Actually that's not true I watched about 15 mins of CoE#1 so I know which characters are gone by that point, but I have no idea when or how they exit so SHHHH. As of now I'm up to Episode 6: "Countrycide" where they're lured into a desolate town full of people-eating psychos. Loving the show so far. This is my first foray into British TV and I have to say, I'm a fan. It's really not that differnent from us except in a lot of cases, it's actually a lot ballsier. Their take on sex and violence and bad language would probably have the US censors and the PTC working overtime, and to them it's just whatevs. The stories so far have been great... Even though at this point in the series a lot of its stand-alone, it doesn't feel formulaic. The acting is awesome and the characters are fully invested in what's going on, and not just talking heads revealing information to each other as in a lot american "procedural" type episodes. The stuff that happens to them resonates because they go there with it. Gwen gets shot, she's not just "damn I'm shot", she's screaming and writhing in agony... They don't gloss over stuff. The storyline with Jianto and his girlfriend was extremely well done. The accents are hard to understand but I guess that's par for the course. I was actually pleasantly surprised that the lead is American (for the most part)--mayeb it's ignorance but I didn't expect that all. Is it common over there for their shows to have American leads? I know he grew up over there but I mean in terms of his accent, which is 100%... Here it seems like 9 times out 10 if a series lead is foreign, they end up doing an accent to sound american. Either way I'm glad he doesn't have an accent because it's just one less thing to worry about. Gwens accent is ok but hard, and I think I've only understood like three of her boyfriend's lines. Anyway, like I said if you want to dive in be my guest just please be mindful of where I'm at. It's risky but it worked out last time I did it.
