Just finished season 2... what a find!

sadly it's on Amazon Prime but after the first few episodes of Season 1 you need a free trial of the Starz subscription which then renews at around £4.99 a month so not ideal (and really p*ssed me off to be honest... pay for amazon prime and now I have to pay extra? meh!)

that said, it's pretty superb with some good writing, and Brendan Gleeson is top-drawer in this.

Not something I've heard of. I tend to watch DVDs based on people's reactions - it's why I have all the seasons of Agents of Shield and Battlestar Galactica. And I just today got the DVD of Good Omens.

I just randomly came across it and I like Gleeson so I gave the first one a quick pop and by the time I realised it ended up being a paid for series I was hooked. Damn pesky and sneaky accountants at Amazon... urrrggghhh...

Well now I'm afraid to watch it in case I too end up paying extra! Although I do like Brendan Gleeson.

There was a short free trial on virgin for Starz but I never bothered with it. I have more than enough to watch on Netflix which is really good, and in my opinion better than Amazon prime which I had for a little while.

same on amazon - but I think it's just a 7 day trial, and certainly the amazon listings for Mr Mercedes only allow you to watch up to episode 3 or 4 of Mr Mercedes series 1 regardless of how much of the trial is left before they require a subscription
