Another added: "Carl's wife is very trusting - he is meant to be at the gym and doesn't get in till half 1 in the morning! #the739."

A third person joked: "Watching #the739. I have no idea how or why people bother having affairs. Looks properly stressful and just a logistical nightmare. I'd never remember the lies or make a good alibi. Um...  I'm late because I got stuck... in the ... um... fish? Store? Yes, the fish store."

Did you enjoy the first episode?

The show is an adaptation from David Nicholls, who also penned BBC's most recent drama, Us. Speaking about the show, he said: "I always thought that this would be a tricky book to adapt as it’s told from one character’s point of view and it’s very much in his head. At the same time, there’s something about it which is very cinematic; it’s a road movie, a journey through the physical spaces of Europe but also a journey of a twenty-year marriage through flashbacks."
