Who needs HD?
Fantastic series, great plot, great acting, great action.
HD wouldn't add anything to the experience at all - it's too good to miss out on for such a trivial nit.
Utopia series 1
Without doubt this is the biggest load of tripe I have ever downloaded. It does really have a proper plot, a ludicrous scientific base, and the story is frequently quite inconsistent - giving the impression this is written by a committee of authors who did not communicate with each other. The vicarious violence does not relieve the mindless boredom and after struggling through five programmes, I shall not bother to find out what happened in the sixth
Don't put the gas away yet.
I was absolutely glued to this series from the first episode. Brilliantly written, shot, and acted; great performances in particular from Oliver and Amelia!
This show does something that LOST, as desperately as it may have tried, rather failed (in my opinion) to do; it creates a constant, unrelenting tension.
There's no denying that it is downright gritty if not plain gory in parts, but not distastefully; it all adds to the tension and sense of unease present throughout.
The series also has a unique visual appeal; much of the shots are very squarely shot mirroring nicely the comic book vector of the plot. Not to mention the imaginative use of the colour yellow, really emphasising the daylight horror nature of parts of the programme.
Oh, and I must mention the brilliantly cold, suspenseful soundtrack by Cristobal Tapia de Veer. Do have a look at it!
In short, it is a brilliant series both technically and in terms of entertainment. It's a wonderfully visceral experience, and even if you are new to conspiracy thrillers as I was, it's the best way I can think of to be introduced to the genre.
