I started to watch the recording but couldn't get into it. I'd like to know if I should persevere.

I started to watch it on catch up tv but got bored quite quickly with it. I doubt I will watch any more .

I recorded it and watched it later, I think I enjoyed it, lol ! So much going on att he mo my head is all over the place! I will give it another go this week and see how it unfolds. Interesting to see that the name of the main character is the same as Huia's sister I think.

There seemed to be an awful lot of aggression (from the men) in the part I watched, maybe that is why I couldn't settle to it. It had a good write up though so maybe I will give it another go.

Started to watch it as it was set in my home country, but really didn't like the way the story was going so switched off.

I watched it, Ann, mainly because I saw Holly Hunter was in it and she is a favourite of mine. maybe when it gets into its stride it will settle down, but there is a lot of mumbling and I have to switch on sub-titles which always irritates me! lol I wont give up on it, though, as it is kind of intriguing.

Lol BC I use the sub titles all the time. Would be lost without them with my hearing problems and the amount of mumbling that goes on.
