    Was looking for highly rated sci fi shows and this was mentioned.

    Centers around a family in England from the years 2020-2030 (I think). It's not sci fi like spaceships and lasers but more of a continuous Black Mirror episode.
    Takes some of the problems/dilemmas the world is facing today and extrapolates them across the next 10 years. It really does an excellent job of making it all believable.
    Great cast and quick pace. 6 episodes of 1 hour each.

    8.5/10

    I watched a couple of episodes of HM last night. Good stuff. Although I realized quickly that this isn’t one to have on the main TV with the family around. I’m surprised I hadn’t heard of this show.

    Have you seen the outsider yet? It's good. Shame I never got to read the book.

    No...in fact I wasnít even aware of it until I saw a teaser last night. I read the book and remember liking it until the ending. Will definitely watch.

    Show about a British family. Sounds like Downton Abbey. Thatís bad enough to be an Andy take.

    Btw...Downton Abbey was great. YaY is definitely not that though.

    Yeah it's not a pass because it's bad. I've seen Downton Abbey and thought it was good. Just not in the mood for one of those slow burner shows right now.

    I donít really care if you watch it but your assessment of it is way off. I would not call this a slow burn at all. The starts happening in the first episode and something fairly significant happpens in each one.
