What do you think  the chances are for a second season,providing Sean can make the time and wants to do it.As reported Sean's scenes for season one took only 4 days to film.

I would love to see more!

Good question. I'd love to see more, too.

They do seem have used up most of the gags, though. Last episode was brilliant and how they could top that, I don't know.

For US TV shows, it's easy to search and find ratings.... I don't see that sort of thing for UK shows? Anybody know where to find that information?

Wasted - British comedy on Hulu

Quote
very low-brow british comedy, 4 20-somethings drinking and doing drugs to get through the day. For mindless comedy, it's actually quite hilarious.

Plus Sean Bean is in it, as Sean Bean dressed as Ned Stark - playing the spirit guide of one of the characters

It's not ground breaking TV, but if you're into that type of comedy, it's worth a watch

Cult Corner: ‘Wasted’ Is A Stoner Comedy With A Delightful ‘Game Of Thrones’ Twist

Quote
When we talk about streaming culture, we’re usually enthusing about what’s new, but one of the best things about streaming is how it’s made old and obscure cult hits available to a new generation. Presenting Cult Corner: your weekly look into hidden gems and long-lost curiosities that you can find on streaming.

What if you were the type of person who got high quite a lot? And every time you got high, you met your spirit guide? And your spirit guide was none other than Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean? That’s the reality Wasted proposes, and it’s an equally insane and fun one.

Much like every other stoner comedy, Wasted has a fairly straightforward premise. The series follows a group of friends and pot enthusiasts as they embark on adventure after adventure. Most of those adventures involve trying to score pot as you may imagine. But, between Ned Stark’s (Sean Bean) presence and this particular group of bumbling besties, there’s a sweetly nerdy tone to Wasted. The British comedy plays with the hard lines that were drawn in high school. You can be nerdy and high, cool and high, confident and high, insecure and high, and everything in between.
For all of Wasted’s oddities, and there are many, there’s something wonderfully meta about this stoner comedy. The idea that a spirit guide would appear not as an animal or historical figure but as a Game of Thrones actor who knows he’s in character seems like a plausible psychedelic trip in 2017. Also, the series is packed with casually nerdy references that never feel too winking or heavy-handed. At one point when all of his friends refuse to watch him host a game night in a pub, the series’ protagonist Morpheus — a seeminlgy clear nod to The Matrix — yells back, “You’re all just a bunch of Lando Calrissians.” That’s a very silly line, but it weirdly works in this quirky show.

Wasted is certainly not for everyone, and it has its faults. If characters aren’t white, heteronormative 20-somethings, there’s not really a role for them. Likewise, if you hate stoner comedies, you’re going to hate this. However, if lighting up on-screen is your jam, you’re probably going to like how Wasted puts a fun, modern twist on familiar genre.

Stream 'Wasted' on Hulu

Airdate: Wasted
Quote
UK comedy Wasted will premiere next month on Syfy.


The series, which has been likened to Spaced Out, surrounds a series of old school friends getting stoned or drunk and includes an appearance by Sean Bean.

This premiered in the UK a year ago. There are 6 episodes all up.

This surreal slacker comedy set in West country village of Neston Berry, sees the return of Kent, after he fails to make it as a DJ, where he reunites with his school friends, Morpheus, Sarah and Alison.

They reside at ‘Stoned Henge’ a souvenir shop/tattoo parlour and have various aimless low-key adventures while trying to stave off boredom, which mostly involve getting drunk or smoking cannabis.

The twenty-something friends lives are changed forever by the appearance of Sean Bean, who plays Morpheus’ imaginary spirit guide, dressed as his role from Game of Thrones.

Wasted on Lightbox (New Zealand).

Ned Stark is alive and well and trapped in a British stoner comedy
Quote
Imagine discovering your subconscious mind can manifest itself into the form it trusts the most. It’s an alarming thought, mostly because mine would reveal itself as an electrifying mix of Suzy Cato and Astar from Good Morning. Thankfully for Morpheus, loveable character of surreal comedy Wasted, it’s a more appealing imaginary vision: it’s Sean flipping Bean.
