Poll: Red Riding

with 3 comments

I’ve been unbelievably disappointed by Channel 4’s flagship ‘television event of the year’ Red Riding. Two episodes in and convoluted, disjointed and outright ridiculous plot twists added with bad direction have left me feeling like a guy who missed his plane for a round-the-world tour. Hopefully the final part of the trilogy improves.

Please complete the below poll with your opinion:

  1. Just wasn’t all there, was it?

    Damn shame. Drama is going to have little to no money behind it now as well…

  2. I’ve just watched episode 3, hoping it would tie ep 1&2 together, but i found myself shouuting at the screen, ‘Just get on with it’.

    And forgive me if I missed something, but wasn’t the construction giant, Dawson , Killed in episode 1? in 1974?
    And if so why were the senior police still only going on about protecting their investment in 1983? when it died with dawson? so how does he appear in 1983?

    And where did the peado ring come from? and why did the Vicar introduce BJ to the Police episode 2 to uncover Dawson, when Dawson was the part of the ring with the Vicar? I give up!

  3. Way too many questions left unanswered and replaced by proto-Saw torture scenes. Not good eh?
