Ian (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Becky (Alexandra Roach), Wilson (Adeel Akhtar) and Grant (Oliver Woollford) are in possession of the original manuscript for the novel and discover that The Network will go to great lengths to get the manuscript back. As they find themselves being framed for crimes they did not commit, they must work together to fight off The Network.

The 4 star rating is for the second series itself, which was great, even if it didn't quite match up to the brilliance of series 1. The true reason of my review is simply to voice my frustration that channel 4 have decided not to release series 2 on blu-ray. I am a big fan of the show and I own series 1 on blu-ray, and I watched this 2nd series on 4hd so I really do not wish to downgrade to DVD quality. Visually this show is absolutely gorgeous, it is colourful and the cinematography is second to none so it really lends itself to be viewed in high definition. Frustratingly, I am choosing not to purchase the DVD version of Utopia series 2 and I will hold out hope for a blu-ray release, although I'm not convinced that day will come.

the second series of utopia picks up about a few months later, but reunites most of the original cast from the first series and without spoiling anything pretty much brings everything full circle. the first episode is a prequel episode set sometime in the 1970's that includes jessica hydes father and a young milner and the formation of the network and the creation of janus.

The insanely surreal Utopia returns for another series and doesn't drop the ball. Back is the lurid colour framing the blackest of humour, back is The Network and the conspiracy theories that propelled the first series and back are the crazy, eccentric characters we have come to adore.

The first episode is an inventive time capsule telling the story of Janus' creation back in the seventies. Fantastically filmed it sets the tone for what is to follow. Pleasingly the rest of the series doesn't dissapoint with double turns and even more unusual characters. Utopia is a fascinating blend of the surreal clashing with the real world. A normal family scene will be interrupted by the arrival of a hitman in brightly coloured clothes with a duffel bag filled with...... well you can see for yourself, but it is these moments that makes Utopia such a compelling watch.

Violence is not shied away from and whilst never lingered on it is graphic but in a deliberately comic book way. The storytelling is great. You never really know which way it is going and you never know who will survive. There are surprises along the way.

This short lived series is well worth catching up on if you havent seen it already. Subversive, dark and interesting it will have you hooked.

Utopia (both series) is one of the best things I've seen in years. One or two of the more minor story lines are a bit crazy (how do you learn what someone knows by dissecting their brain?) ... but the overall plot is fascinating. If you really believe the more doom laden predictions of the near future, the sort of extreme measures contemplated here to prevent the worst consequences must be considered ... :-) ... at least briefly! Do the ends justify the means? Perhaps that does depend on what is at stake. It is nice to see such things being explored in such an entertaining way. Needless to say, Utopia is very violent ... so it isn't exactly family viewing ...

Greatest British drama of all time. The editing, cinematography, plot, script, acting, everything is done to absolute perfection. Utopia is very heavy, but especially relevant in todays world. Everyone needs to watch this show.

I don't want to give away anything, so I will say only that Series Two is excellent. I found it slightly less terrifying than Series One, probably because the story and characters are more familiar now. Of course, there is still plenty of violence, gore, and wheels-within-wheels goodness. I'm looking forward to Series Three.

Bit disappointed in this series! Started well but could have been half as long, just repeated itself. Sorry for the spoilers, but - The guy with the patch gets violently smashed in the knee with a crowbar and in the next shot it hasn't happened! So the wonder women of this complete series who walks through fire and is uncatchable just gets lead away without a complaint.
