Anybody been watching this? I'm not sure if it's shown in the US, but it's a new thriller that's currently three episodes in, the wikipedia page would do a better job of explaining than i can: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utopia_(TV_series)

I think it's really good, the strange shots, music, and background noises give a real sense of paranoia, but at the same time, the lighthearted moments give it a bit of breathing room. All the episodes so far seem to feature at least one shocking scene-
with the eye torture in the first one, and a (comparatively tame) throttling scene in the second one. The latest one opens with a hitman walking into a school after closing time and murdering everyone in the building, including a few children taking after school classes, which i kind of thought was in bad taste, seeing as there were some school shootings a short while ago, but it was important in the context of the programme.

All I know is that it's got Curtis from Misfits. Probably give it a watch when I get home.

Only TV I'm looking forward to is the new series of Black Mirror, and A Touch Of Cloth but that won't be for a while. Basically, Charlie Brooker is the only reason I watch TV.

It has been compared to Black Mirror quite often. I have only seen a small part of one episode, so i can't really vouch for the comparisons.
