    So far I am finding the UK version much better than ours. They have a better mix of people, more funny moments and a better host. The only thing I prefer is our voice over guy.

    Having now caught up, I find the UK version so much better. Ours was boring compared to theirs.

    Did you watch every episode? @sav0001
    There is a LOT to get caught up, 50 eps now

    I think I will skip to the weekly roundup after a few more episodes, I am only up to 2nd week

    I cannot stand Dani, girl with famous Dad and huge nose and difficult to understand accent
    Hayley the very pretty bimbo is also difficult to understand, and OMG dumb as a doorbell

    @Affable have you caught up?

    Yep I binged watched all the episodes over the weekend. There are 33 so far. The latest episode was so juicy with heaps of drama. I actually think that Dani and Jack will win the whole thing.

    Yeah, what a problem hey? Too much RTV that I quite enjoy....
    I am watching/aiming for 3 episodes late night/bed viewing.

    Considering the catch up.....but I can't I like watching these peanuts
    Maybe i should watch the roundup then the episodes.
    Still loving Dr Alex, Niall, Adam the best..........forget most of the rest
    Find a lot of the women a bit blah

    Love Island has also grown into a huge hit this season. It premiered at 4 million viewers which is the highest digital tv ratings since the 2012 London Olympics and has averaged 3.8 million viewers so far. It is now the most watched show on ITV2 ever.

    Compare that to the 570k the first season averaged. The Australian version has the potential to grow in a similar fashion if they improve the casting.

    Less plastic people and more diversity both in terms of different cultures and professions. Also pick more people with some semblance of intelligence. But I dont think there is any hope of that with Alex M as head producer.

    He left due to his Asperger's. You ain't saying nothing yet, it gets really juicy later on. A million times better than ours.

    Such a shame about Niall he is sweet and cute.

    @Affable where are you up to in catching up?
    I thought I could whizz through, skipping boring bits etc
    Trouble is, it is all quite good viewing, I might miss stuff......like Adam stuff, the hottest guy is turning into a turd

    I'm at the same place where I was when the episode was last on TV. So no movement at all.

    I have a lot of catching up to do still.

    The latest streaming ratings are out and Love Island UK takes up 7 of the top 10 programs. The other three spots are taken by the Love Island Australia finale and Handmaid's tale.

    Slowly catching up

    I was obsessed with the Thai rescue, and spent all my viewing and online time following everything about that....and praying

    Now up to episode 12, and going to try an watch 2 shows every night
    Hope you catch up @Affable, more fun when you are commenting

    Well done @sav0001......will try and get caught up so we can chat, loving this being available, it is perfect bedroom late night viewing

    If you are interested in chatting with Brits, digitalspy.com forums are good

    I'm part way through episode 10.
    I need subtitles! Sometimes it's hard to figure out what people are saying.
    Adam is a grade A arsehole. I don't know why the girls keep giving him second chances? I guess they are dazzled by his looks. But I don't think he's that great. It's sad that Nial felt he had to leave. I like Alex. I hope he finds someone.

    I rarely understand Dani & Jack, and don't care much because from what I do understand they just talk shit...cannot stand her especially, and he is like any sales man, boring.
    She is lucky she bagged him, they speak the same gibberish, she is rough

    I like Alex and Eyol....who is a bit weird, but he speaks well:)
