    My Pap/Meh/Good scale was swinging wildly between Meh and Good with the occasional lurch into the Pap zone (pretty much whenever a Channel 4 face [Michael Smiley, etc] appeared).

    While the storyline seems like it might be interesting and some of the cinematography was pretty good Im concerned that its leaning too heavily on its Channel 4 heritage. I was getting a distinctly Spaced vibe from the characters and direction (especially the harsh cuts), while its whole ascetic is a little too Misfits for my liking (dark urban background with literally colourful looking characters pasted on top).

    Im worried theyll put in too many twists and the story will turn out stupid, or that theyll throw in too much comedy and ruin the balance, but it wasnt a terrible start to a series at all really. Ill certainly watch it next week.
