Is anyone else watching this? I just saw the first episode last night and thought it was shaping up to be a really interesting show.

I've got it waiting on Sky+ but haven't watched it yet. The reviews made it sound quite interesting, so I'm quite looking forward to it.

Anyone else watched this through? I honestly thought this just got better and better throughout the whole first series!

I really enjoyed it and found it a little bit heartbreaking too. Do you know if they plan on making a second series?

I cried so much at the end of the series!

No idea if they'll make another, but they really should! There were so many threads left open-ended, like:

Spoiler: show
Why did The Rising happen? What happens to Amy? Who is the Undead Prophet? What's up with the crazy drug thing from the first episode?

The Undead Prophet will probably be a big part of season 2, if they make it. It really intrigued me! I want to know more!

Just finished watching the series 2 finale and I loved it even better than the first series! I was really impressed at the way they integrated queer and disability rights narratives into the storyline even more than last time.

I'm sorry I created a second thread. I think I must have done something wrong while searching for it.

Anyway, I love this show. I hate that it's another year until season 3. And the seasons are so short...

No worries, I'm just happy there's someone else to talk about the show with! It's so awesome.

Totally with you! At least this series was 6 episodes rather than the first series' 3 episodes. I love how complex and mysterious it is! All this stuff about a Second Rising and the importance of the First Risen has me completely hooked. And what's going to happen to Amy now?!

Do you think Amy is dead for good? Or will she rise again with the second rising?

I really want to buy the imported DVDs and give them to my boyfriend, so I can rewatch this.

I totally think she's rising again already; the stuffed toy falling over and the people waiting in the car to take her body away has got to have some deeper meaning.

Oh right, I forgot they dug her up. The first season I was only invested in the character development but now I'm also really curious what the zombie rising and the second rising means/what is going to happen.

I don't like Simon, I think. I mean, he did intend to kill Kieran when he started running towards him, didn't he? The religion thing is also really sketchy..
