    Really enjoyed this. Worth watching for Yvonne Strahovski alone :)

    I enjoyed it but haven’t watched past Series 3 wife said it was too depressing so stopped , the frightening thing about it is when it started you thought the concept was a bit far fetched but a few years on it’s a distinct possibility

    Just finished season 2 and I was struggling to be honest. Season 1 was great but I've found the storylines in season 2 to be a little farfetched - within it's own context - and I generally have trouble with Elisabeth Moss' acting at the best of times - too mannered and too much bloody whispering. I'll continue to watch the other seasons after a little break as I think it's something worth watching considering the subject matter.
