Re: Utopia (Channel 4) last night

Probably, although I found it grew on me a lot. I agree the first episode (maybe the first couple) were not great. You have to admit the end of episode one is quite a surprise. I didn't mind that it was arty, if I had to cite one problem with it I'd say it tried too hard to be shocking, though not in a torchwood/juvenile kind of way, almost the opposite and a few times in the opening episodes I felt quite uncomfortable.

But either it relaxed a bit or else I acclimatised because this bothered me less as it went on. I liked the fact that the central conspiracy was something that at least made you pause and think, "are they right?" and I liked Wilson's response.
