Utopia - Season 2, Episode 6 - Opening scene

Follow by Email
There's a whole bunch of reasons why I love Channel 4's "Utopia", but scenes like these are by far the best way to explain it. Tense, masterfully written, topically relevant... simply phenomenal. Btw, I do not own this, I just want to share what I consider to be one of the most exciting series in years. Rent it, buy it, get it. Just watch it.

Comments from Youtube

David Rocastle : typical small talk

MarcaF7 : anyone else agree that the background soundtrack really made this video?

TheNovelty8theory : What I love about this series is the constant feeling of foreboding and threat, also score is perfection!! Incredible television series.

AlisterShufflebottom : So they did a series about me talking to people. Nice! :-)

Andrew Rizzo : I always come back to watch this scene (and others) every few months or so. I miss this show too much. Fingers crossed that Netflix will bring it back someday, like they did with "Black Mirror".

Animµs Vox : This show made me an edgy person

KEEPROLLINROLLINROLLINYO : yo best show ever made yo 

luiscarlosbarragan : Let´s just stop having children. Thank you.

Caitlyn Etherington : I went over to my boyfriends mum and sat in that bus station exactly where this scene was filmed in Barnsley interchange 😃😃😃

Kristoffer Storvestre : This whole scene is really clever and well made, with only one exception that would have ruined his entire rant. What if she adopted?

Tim Crompton : thinking about posting this on every father's day entry on Facebook.

Interioroutbreak69 : if you like this watch True Detective, and also google anti-natalism

nherdboi : #vhemt

Alan Mann : What is the actor's name? He's fantastic.

Clément Menand : This scene is so provocative, you seldom see that on TV. That's how Utopia is brillant, making you question about things society made you believe in. Plus, with that bit of Hotline Miami-like music at the end, I would love to see Utopia season 2's soundtrack released.

ECDdanielDCE : One of the best series I've ever seen

MoarOfTehRawkege : Well, that escalated quickly.

guilux666 : "I think you freaky and i like you alot" very nice !! (but you got to spot it !?!?!?!)

SaleM : As an antinatalist it seems right, but the motive is wrong. I think it's better to adopt cause in the end, life is a bitch. Yeah, it can be allright, happy life and all that, but in the end, it's not... even if you had a perfect life (which nobody really do have), in the end, on your death bed, you gonna miss it... memories, cruel memories and the vision of death. People seem to think that it's good to die in your home, surrounded by your family and all that... well, I don't know, but it doesn't seem good to me, lookin at all these young family members, remembering my youth... that's hella sad, I'd rather die in an accident. So yea... I think that life, in the end, is cruel, so there's no point in breeding, since they gonna feel the same way. But in this show they tell ya, it's not good, cuz... overpopulation? Like... I love this show, but this is just stupid, it isn't a real issue, I doubt it will ever be. Ya gotta remember that Earth will die anyways, no matter what we do, it will die, along wit the whole solar system. If you are concered about human species, the only solution is to emigrate to other planets, and that's a problem right now. But me? I don't really care... I mean why should we? Why should atheists care since there's nothing after death anyways, so what are the profits of keeping Earth alive? And then - why should religious people care - since there's heaven after life and it's all god's plan? Really, sometimes I wonder... what is the point? Like, I see these eco-maniacs on TV, saving the Earth and all that... WHY? I never heard any argument for keeping the Earth alive.

Benny B : Freaking love this show. One of the best.

dan taylor : Anyone thought that the Ebola outbreak could be a very good front for Janus?

Ben Mokhtar Brahim : i love this

fatphillmargera : Doug Stanhope?…Anybody?

Mix Amer : I've seen this scene years ago yet I think about it pretty often utopia is just the best show in its own category

Flowzah : unfortunately due to general masses being stupid this show was canceled, although it's bittersweet because it had so, so much potential and at the end of season 2 when it was clear the show would not go on the producers attempted to tie the ends together but as it always goes they just didn't have the time to make it a fulfilling ending. I will always cherish this show, and I truly hope that they pick it up again sometime in the future, although by then they'd never succeed at finding a cast that fits the story so perfectly.

nagasako7 : Nothing pollutes more than a Birth in 1st world, yet leftists concerned about environment want mass immigration to 1st World... The logic baffles

CSDUVIDS : Pretty sure I walked passed the actor playing this guy in the high street where I live. Pretty creepy. 

TheTwosliceToaster : The truth hurts and humanity can't handle it.

Lacombe57 : Good show!!!

LittleDoctor007 : Just watched the series. Really good.

DivineRequiem : just amazing xD

D Chop : Wow! So glad I found this! Thank you for sharing!!!

Cate Mossman : Brilliant, and finally daring to broach the taboo topic of overpopulation and each human's responsibility to control their reproduction now.

Kristel : Too bad they never continued the series....

ECDdanielDCE : IMO this is the best television series ever made

guystryche : me, when I meet someone with children

Existential Spirit : I love this

Joseph De-haan : Season 2 was pretty poor for sure but it had the best 1st episode of both seasons, episode 1 and the best cold open, this.

Dorian Buguet : Im the biggest fan of utopia and I was so disapointed when they stop the serie at season 2

Raggaded : The Monarch's Pyramid-Cristobal Tapia De Veer

Sadaf R : The Irish defender and Russian flu pulled my eye out with a spoon, and now Ann coutler wants my soul.

Meris : Such an incredible monologue

zombu : I hope this gets added to netflix.

Frasco : #ChildFree

meu02136 : I really should stop giving this speech to people in work. Especially since they never actually invite me to the christenings.

life is an STD : beautiful. kind of AN vibes

DonnieDisasters : One of the best scene!

Lewis Watkin : That’s my local bus stop. Every time I go in there I just get that creepy scene in my head.

Chay Milne : i need that soundtrack at the end of this clip, soooooo goood
