Only a couple episodes in, but I am really liking it. I went in not knowing anything about it, so I'll leave it that way here too for the beginning.

This has been on my radar almost entirely because of the title and the kid who is the lead actor (who I'v'e seen in other stuff but can't remember what; Black Mirror, I think).

I've heard great things about it. It's in the queue along with about 400 other things I should watch and don't have time to.

For those without much time, it is an 8 part series with each episode being about 25 minutes. So, brevity.

I finished it last night and really liked the last episode.

I had to shut it off after the cat was murdered in the first 2 minutes.

Karen can't watch stuff like this (essentially, she has a form of PTSD after her abusive background and homelessness) and it was a bit harsh coming in cold. I may watch the rest of the first episode to see if it gets less radical in the harshness, but I very much doubt that it will.

Looked intriguing, though.

Not exact spoilers, but kinda...

As far as animal killings, yes it does get less harsh, but if PTSD is an issue for her, the series explores that issue with both of the characters, so it might be a bit much for her to watch.

I figured as much.

I will talk with her about it and see what she wants to do. She has come to trust a lot of the shows you guys recommend and has become more resilient but she can backslide at any shocking scene that she is not expecting.

She did express that she wanted to maybe try watching it again and I appreciate your input as it will give us a better idea on whether she will want to continue watching or not.

I enjoyed Man Bites Dog, so this might be of interest to me.
