My wife sat down partway through me watching this and asked what on earth was going on with it, and as I tried to explain that they were dark comedies that always confounded you with twists, the episode we were watching twisted away like an epileptic cobra. Extraordinary. In the last five minutes it went haywire with developments.
Now you see we watched that episode, after rave reviews from someone at the GF's workplace and found it to be rubbish. Each to their own.
We watched the one with the girl breaking into the crossword writer's rooms last night - it was excellent! Better than the restaurant one, I thought.
Great twists in both plot and tone, but like always it managed not to feel contrived.
