    Sounded a bit scary to me. I watched Poirot instead.

    I watched it on +1, I thought it was quite good as well, which surprised me as I've never watched a foreign program like that before. I didn't realize it was more than one part though, until it finished and I found myself asking what happens next. Can't wait to see it next week.

    The butterfly came back to life at the start, so im guessing some sort of goverement experiment gone wrong near by? The woman who was tied up in the burning house was not found by the firemen, So that was also weird.

    So is anyone still watching? I think it is great although it has gone a bit "Lost" in places. I think there is only a couple of episodes left.
    It hasn't been hard watching the subtitles except of course you cant do anything else whilst watching.
    I have taken exception to some of the translations though - it just shows that in English you have several words for the same thing (subtly different) but French doesn't have that diversity

    Me and the wifey have been watching this and we think it's great.

    TBH we also enjoy watching the odd foreign film with subtitles and we feel the we take a lot more from them as we're not distracted so easily with having to concentrate on the text.

    Yeah loving this. Beautifully shot and great mysterious story.
    Agree with translation thing though. I always wonder why, when there is a direct translation, they choose other words?

    Semi watching it Victor (little Boy) really creeps me out though. Don't think he said a word that what creeping me out about him.

    Love the score by Mogwai as well really helps the ambience of the drama
