Reviews

Entire first series of the programme based on dating and relationships among a disparate group of young British people. The narrator, Nathan, is a womanising Mancunian web designer working for a porno outfit. His best mate Jase and Jase's girlfriend Fi are his regular posse but after they go out on a big one together one night, things suddenly take on a very different complexion indeed. While Jase is having trouble with some unforeseen feelings for a gay guy he's met, Nathan slips in and is soon getting in among it with Fi. Nathan's potty-mouthed boss, Peggy, makes his life a misery but he can always seek solace in his new confidante Fabian, a pre-op trans-sexual.

Don't get me wrong. I love this programme and bought this DVD as soon as it was available. But I was really disappointed that all the original songs broadcasted on TV were replaced with a generic and quite bland music that does not fit the scenes at all. I noticed this on other BBC DVDs too (license reasons obviously), but there the music was not such a huge part of the scenes. In Sinchronicity, music is there to create the mood, give the scene a pace. Imagine the scene where Nathan meets Rosa without Oh Happy Day, or Nathan catching the bus with Fi without The Automatic's Monster. It just does not work. At least as a compensation, there are two interviews with actors playing Nathan, Jase and Fi and a few minutes of outtakes on this set. Anyway, as much as I love this programme I can give only three stars to this DVD release. It would have been five with the original music.

The Actors where very rich and vibrant. I wish this series was continued. I was looking for something that was a cross between Funny, but not Over the Top. Something Serious But Not so dramatic. Well I found it. You can actully watch the 2 discs set over and catch something new every time. Well what can I say just that writers and Director Need to do it again. (Or continue with what did in 2006. I am just glad I was searching for something different. If you also like "TourchWood" or "Melrose Place", the Original Or "Desperate Housewives" you'll love this.

Jase & Manny are my favorite they were very convincing and it may me invest my time into seeing how this was going to play out. Nathan was so fun as he narrated the daily events and his role in all of it. including his attraction to "Fi" his relationship Jase and then interaction with Manny. I just wanted more. My only complaint is it seem like there was so much more that has been written.

If you've never seen a Shine production, then I recommend this, but I'd say watch both seasons of Sugar Rush afterwards to see how real comic romantic drama should be done. After Hex and Sugar Rush I was deeply disappointed by Sinchronicity. It's a mess! I liked it a lot during the first 4 episodes. Ep 5 left me wondering if it was ever going to end well, then ep 6 was a huge let down. A lot of it is hilarious, but some of the jokes can be pretty strained at times. It contains a bad-idea subplot about gonorrhoea, complete with the old homophobic myth that STDs emanate from gays and are passed to straights via wicked bisexuals. It contains the implication that the only thing to stop a person from going around having promiscuous unprotected sex at swinger parties is if he has gonorrhoea!? The whole series is basically just the one-line joke about when will two people's out-of-phase lust and love finally get into phase so that they can get together. Nothing wrong with that, but the devices needed to be a little less repetitive. Some of the lies told by Nathan are too stupid to be believable or enjoyable: "I fancied the nurse so I told her I was gay"!? And just when we want resolution, the final episode is a manic version of Sliding Doors with a completely new character (the woman with the rabbit); it looked like Sugar Rush, the music was re-used Sugar Rush music, and it couldn't even end without a poor circular joke to spoil the emotional satisfaction (which was barely possible anyway, thanks to the Sliding Doors complexities obscuring any `real' drama). This review makes it sound as though Sinchronicity is rubbish. It isn't, but it isn't as good as it should have been.

This show has just finished broadcasting on BBC HD (not sure if it's been on this channel before?).

Anyway, prior to seeing it in the BBC HD listing I'd never heard of it, but set it to record and I'm so glad I did. I will be keeping this to watch again in the future.

I found the show very entertaining and well acted. I'm not a great fan of British TV drama and tend to watch US shows such as Lost, 24 and Weeds. However this was like a breath of fresh air.

The music (on the TV broadcast) is a big part of the show, it's so fitting, very well chosen. However I really hate to think what they've done to the DVD. Sounds like they've ruined it.

There are a number of things I shouldn't like about this show, such as Nathan talking to the camera, but it seems so right in this.

Don't watch unless you have an open mind, if you know what I mean...

As a fan of As If I was intrigued to see Jemima Rooper and Paul Chequer acting together again and caught in a love triangle - soon to be rectangle!

This is an ambitious drama. Nathan says early on that little moments of choice can made a huge difference and the entire drama plays with this conceit - even having two different story lines a la Sliding Doors in the last episode.

To be honest it's not wholly successful but it's good and much better written and acted than most of the TV drama we see.

Jemima Rooper's performance, in particular shines out as being something special - she has a very good range and can move between comedy and distress with credibility. She's just very watchable - I also enjoyed her performance in Lost in Austen recently.
