It showed the difference between a proper serialised drama - where each episode can stand alone - and a drawn out epic where a story is told over 10 hours that could really be a 2 hour film.

Obviously, if you're looking for BBC Period templates like Downton Abbey, this is not for you, but if you want an intriguing and honest exploration of sexual desire, taboos and relationships in the modern age, then this ticks those boxes.

Emotions, realationships, just stunning .

She seems to struggle with dull lines to deliver, not giving us a character with whom we can easily identify.

But again slow in pace which made me feeling meh sometimes.

I wasn't interested at first but decided to watch it, I'm glad I did, it's hilarious and entertaining.

It was like this through Ep 1 to 4, but then episode 5 - what the hell happened, it bored me to tears, it's as if this was a fill-in, I just don't get it.

The subject is interesting but the screenplay for me was sloppy, confusing and sometimes boring.

And each un-natural scene of uncomfortable torture is broken by the worst collection of un-music played at a hauntingly slow 33 RPM instead of 78 RPM.

the episode with the psychotherapy is just stunning, real, you can feel her deep and burried emotions on your skin...

For me I felt it was very engaging and convincing and like a good book it gave the reader space to interpret things with their own mind rather than being spoon fed every emotion and thought.

Maybe it's all the sex scenes (it is a story about a couples sex-life afterall), maybe it was unrelatable, maybe it was boring.

Amusing and somewhat funny the story however, is slow paced and understandably, it needs to be.

I watched the first episode with increasing confusion and annoyance.

There are so many British drama dues revolving around bored couples doing the right thing in the end.

So much for the BBC producing quality programmes, this is truly a complete waste of license-fee payers money.

I've really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the final episode

But the pace is too slow and I feel bored waiting the scene to get by.

I liked the first 4 episodes but found the last 2 very confusing and boring.

Bored within 5 minutes, the characters are one dimensional, there is no storyline.

Loved Episode 5 it was gripping.

Dull as dust, this lethargic show wastes the considerable talents of Toni Collette.

absolutely breathtaking.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Please don't waste your time on this rubbish.

Waste of time show (and i love Tonny Collete ).

Expected more from Collette and Mackintosh, sadly about what I've come to expect from the bbc, joining other recent offerings such as Keeping Faith and the truly awful Age Before Beauty in the category labelled "complete waste of time, resources and licence payer's money.

The main story was bland, and the other story lines all felt like fillers.

Enjoy it for what it is: exciting, funny, lighthearted fantasy.

Definitely worth watching, as it is VERY deep (you just have to wait a flipping minute to get there), highly comical, incredibly SERIOUS and simply wonderful.

It really was the most tedious and flawed examination of where responsibility lays one human to another.

Funny And Enjoyable .

This is super pretentious , trying to be intellectual , missing every important point, bad writing, borefest.

Turning from a sad comedy into a deep drama, with a backgroud of different ballads and pop themes to enhance meanings, also they relied on some contrived events.

The story is dull and show tries too hard to be controversial.

Everybody seems to have their own long drawn out breakthroughs in their lives at the same time.

This got better with every episode, culminating in an absolutely gripping penultimate hour.

pretentious and totally boring .

As an idea, it was interesting in the first 2 episodes, the next 2 were a bore and bog standard approach.

Great for grown up but too slow in pace .

What I find amazing is how directors used the power of silence in some scenes and characters took their time to dig deeper and even failing to do so thus ending up being confusing (which is actually our reality where majoroty of people nowadays simply are not able to identify themselves what they really want and precisely express it...

Stunning show made me analyze and go back in time with myself.
