ITV viewers watching the latest episode of Our House on Wednesday night were unimpressed with the “distant” plot.
The third installment of the four-part series sees Bram Lawson’s situation spiral out of control as he continues to be blackmailed for having to give up his house.
Bram (Martin Compston) got into a fight in the first episode and decided to drive away – but didn’t realize he was being watched.
In the second episode, he had a one-night stand with a random woman named Wendy, but she ended up telling him that she knew about the accident and started blackmailing him.
When the situation turns sour, Wendy (Buket Komur) asks to see him and brings along a man named Toby, who tells Bram they want his home.
When Bram made their claim and ended up being blackmailed into handing over more money, some viewers became frustrated with the plot and took to Twitter.
One person tweeted: “You will not only say report me, you have a photo but your witness and you also missed the crime. Like I am leaving a 2m house, losing my wife and children to this. hey. I. will even go to jail for a few years if it happens… #OurHouse.”
A second person commented: “So you go to jail a bit for an accident & leave the scene & lose your license & maybe your job but at least you still have your family…. why choose to pay the blackmailers, take your family out on the street & never see them again?? #OurHouse.”
A third viewer posted: “This is so far fetched and bogus! #OurHouse” and a fourth added: “The most intriguing trilogy. The plot is ridiculous now with #OurHouse. “
Another viewer simply wrote: “The plot is full of holes. #OurHouse.”
Our House is adapted from an international best-selling novel written by Louise Candlish.
Our House ends Thursday at 9pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
