I agree with Taps. I'm finding it (vaguely) interesting seeing how long the episodes are - a little over an hour - and wondering had been on the BBC if they would have had to trim it down to better fit the 1hr slot.

Never mind you, who's that redhead to your right?!

I shall watch it in the next few days. I can't remember what happened, but I remember enjoying the last episode (Morocco?!) a lot more!

Gave up watching it. Same old jokes being played out. Just dull, like most of the other 'Amazon Original' stuff. Netflix are far better at this.

The brunette with a slight tinge of red in her hair?

I finally got round to watching TRE (The Ras Episode). I quite enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the 2 parter and the episode after that.

But the latest episode in Nashville seemed to go back to type: shouty 'anger'. And people got annoyed at Chris Evans 'shouting'... Good premise but I ended up on my phone during the episode.

Don't test me, I can spot red hair a mile away! That hair is clearly dyed and it's clearly a reddish brown! Anyway, this doesn't answer my original question! Ras, hook me up, think she's shaping up to be my third ex-wife.

Agree with your assessment of the episodes there Robbo. Quite enjoyed the one before the most recent, but as you say, Nashville was a bit meh again.

Not watched it since the 2 parter. No one here can find the desire to watch it! The over s ripped nature of it is starting to grate..

Oh yeah, the scripting is pretty blatant. Especially during conversation street, "I think this" "You're wrong!" "What?! That's totally unexpected" "Yup, all wrong." "Well I just happen to have all this stuff to test this unexpected hypothesis."

It's just the same old shiv jokes rehashed. Amazon still trying to polish their turd.

Oh yeah, I meant to comment on that but was so bored with it that I even forgot!

It was terrible. Took me three sittings to finish it. On paper I should have enjoyed it. But meh. Don't even think I was watching it at the end, just texting with it on in the background.

Thoroughly enjoyed Loch Ness Ep 2. Maybe more the first half than the second but I think the toilet humour contributed to my enjoyment and the silly launch control vt.
