I thought it was very promising. Anyone else?

We thought it a shame that everyone's daemons weren't in evidence - as my (30 yr old!) son said, they could have just had a few dogs or cats roaming around and wouldn't necessarily have had to go the full CGI route, which would have been a vast amount of work. I noticed a few extra birds flying in the rafters but that was all.

Reserving judgment for the moment ....

Saving it for when I get back from holiday
Did sneak a look at the first little bit. Looked promising.

Off to Malta on Wednesday! Back on the 14th, so would be a bit of a gap until I saw episode 2

It is perhaps our age but we both found the sound quality really poor, so much so we put on the subtitles

Caught up with this last night. I'm afraid I haven't read the books, my children were grown up before they were published, I hadn't really twigged how clever they were and probably will now.

I had just watched a film with awful sound and when this had poor sound too I thought I was just having a bad day. It's quite reassuring that others found the same thing - but how sad in this day and age for that to happen.

We're finding that is happening more frequently too. We also suffer terribly from planes landing at Heathrow a few minutes later, when the wind is in a certain direction. The combination makes you feel at least 100 and a total wreck! That said, today they're quiet! As are the helicopters.

Didn't have a problem with the sound while watching episode 1 in iPlayer last night. I don't think it can be instrinsic to the recording. I watched it through a Fire stick, though, so boosted 'signal', I think.

Funnily enough, we watched ep 2 last night through the firestick as we started it late, and the sound seemed better than the previous week. we also felt that it was improving and enjoyed it more than ep 1.

I’m enjoying it but haven’t got a clue what’s going on. I haven’t read the books and so far it’s as clear as mud!

I think I'm following it! It's very clever. I too thought that the sound was better last night and I don't use a Fire stick, I didn't need subtitles.

When it's finished I shall read the books. I heard an extract read yesterday and it sounded very descriptive and interesting. I suspect, that like Harry Potter, the books are far more gripping than any film.

I have read it, but as they came out, so a long time ago. Even so, I know it pretty well and can't have an nobjective perspective on the programme.

I am watching everything through the Firestick now... I did wonder if I really needed it, but very glad I bought it.

I haven't read the books, although my daughter has them, so I might when the series has ended. I'm enjoying it too - probably more so than if I'd read the books, as my daughter says there are a few things about it that niggle her.
