Produced by Channel 4, and shown there back in October, the show is getting huge international attention following its recent release on Netflix worldwide. For a few days, Rotten Tomatoes even had the show sitting at 100% critical approval rating. If rumours can be believed, Netflix are already looking into financing a second series. It seems that we Brits are still at the forefront when it comes to genuine black comedies.
In part it's a boy-meets-girl show. But it's also a crime thriller, as well as a coming of age story. The perspective is split between James, his sort-of, not-quite, maybe-just-maybe will be girlfriend, Alyssa, and two detectives who are trying to hunt the pair down.
But even the detectives' storyline is far from simple, as DC Eunice Noon (Gemma Whelan, a.k.a. Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones) and DC Teri Donoghue (Wunmi Mosaku) struggle to deal with their recent drunken one-night-stand.
