    Anyone caught this yet?

    New Netflix series, just released. Very good reviews. About a guy stalking a girl. Neat twist is that's it's all from the stalker's perspective.

    On the second episode now. It's pretty good.

    Cheers Otis. Need a new boxset and this wasn’t even on my radar

    Just finished watching The Innocent Man. Slow in patches but still well worth a watch

    Would describe it as Dexter-lite.

    It has the same style of voice-over and a slightly similar theme .

    It''s a bit glossy, but I have never come across the female star before, Elizabeth Lail and she's insanely pretty.

    Have watched the first 5 episodes. Pretty good so far. And yes she is insanely pretty!

    If this is "Dexter-esque" then I will be looking out for it! I loved Dexter and watched the whole series all over again (as I did with Breaking Bad), because I enjoyed it so much! Cheers Otis!

    Finished watchinf it last night. Pretty good

    enjoyed it, some of the dialogue was a bit forced/unnatural, but it had a lot of layers to it. Great twist at the end. Just a shame I never Really warmed to any of the characters. Looking forward to the next series though

    Yeah, agree, stu.

    You don't really don't warm to any character do you, which is a bit isolating.

    Don't get your hopes up too high, Houch. There are only minor similarities, such as the constant voice over and some of the planning on that of wanting people dead.

    It's not up to Dexter standards I don't think.

    I've watched the first couple of episodes and have enjoyed it so far. I love the similarities between the stalker and Dennis from Always Sunny in Philadelphia for anyone that watches that!

    Watched 5 or 6 episodes in two sittings, cheers Otis.

    I think I've got a crush on Bec.

    She's far too gorgeous for her own good isn't she.

    Watched the first 2 but it is a bit random how he stood outside her house gazing through the window, walks past her in uni, sits at the bar listening to her conversations etc and nobody says anything to him.

    The bit where he gets the bloke to meet him about is drink, just before the bloke was talking to his mate and said he loves the guy and always retweets his stuff so how he did he build that up so quick to trick him?

    The bit where he is in the bar watching her with her tutor, then he walks out but pretends to come back to see her and then sits at the bar like nothing has happened?

    Why doesn't his work colleague find it strange he is taking random young boys into work with him?

    It's a bit too random.

    Yeah, you have to get past that. It's nonsensical that he isn't seen or recognised, or approached by anyone and of course he is getting so close to her so he can hear everything, but in bars people do look around and standing outside her window, residents would definitely notice.

    There are a few weaknesses, like the fact that she loves shagging with the curtains open but so what

    On that note, did that cushion really do the job?

    I finished watching this the other day, my wife loved it but i thought it was pants. That ending Pah. I agree about the girl who played Bec though.

    Up to about the fifth

    How doesn't she realise he jogs behind her every day?

    Why did she believe him turning up at that Victorian thing wasn't weird?

    Watched the last 3 last night.

    Not sure about the ending, in reality it wouldn't be so straight forward for him to do what he did and get away with it.

    The cup full of piss also strangely went unnoticed at a scene where somebody died. His fingerprints would have been all over the door handles, add to that him being pulled over round the corner just before and the car linking back to the book shop he worked at.

    And in all honesty if you were Bec, when you put him down with that hammer you would have finished the job.

    Exactly!

    I guess the little boy has intentionally been left as a new series where he becomes as bad.
