This is England. 90s

First episode i wasnt convinced.
Second one seemed to keep me amused slightly. If anything for the nostalgia and making me think of the days of my yoof and getting up to the same as some of the characters in this series.
Think that it may come to life a little more when the guy who played a not very convincing Billy Bremner in The Damned United comes back.

I like it as well, but not as much as the last two series (even though this is more my era than the others). The second episode was really fucking dark. That's one of the things I remember from those days, for every good kid who was into going out and getting off it on Ecstasy, their was always some real shifty fuckers lurking around. Fucking pushers who weren't the slightest bit interested in the music and who just honed in on the really daft and impressionable lads and lasses and got them into the nastier drugs. Shane Meadows depicted that brilliantly in the second episode of this new series.

The rape scene (not to get in to whether it was meant to be depicted as rape) was very disturbing.

For all the series' minor faults, I still think it's brilliant, the actors are absolute quality.  Not too keen on the 'Miami Vice' duo, they're a bit too much to believe, or maybe it's just that they're cornier than corn.

The Miami Vice duo are spot on. That period was just on the arse-end of the eighties and I have mates who'd turn up at house clubs looking like that. Probably driving Ford Orion Ghia's or Escort XR3i's. They hadn't quite managed the jump from the eighties as well as others of us who threw ourselves headfirst into the Bedlam of the early nineties.

Mate, I meant their dialogue rather than the look, I have no qualms with the look, whether it's right or wrong  Their lines jar more than a Jar Factory dropped from a very high point on to Planet Jar, for me.

Ah, I see what you mean.

When is Late Doors not Late Doors? When he's having a jar.

What was the music when they are all dancing around the camp fire in the hippies camp (just before the rape scene!)

Would I be right in thinking it was by Toy Drum and was called Never Feel This Young. Don't know anything about this at all to e honest. Anybody help me

Late Doors isnít Late Doors when every Tuesday week he transforms himself into Francesca and attends the Purple Flute Club with other like-minded/misunderstood males. FACT!

WIth no thanks to any of you on here - see my previous post question - I tracked down the music.

To be honest I don't know much about UNKLE, Pablo Clements, James Griffith, Toydrum or Gavin Clark (except he died this year) this could be well worth a punt when it is released in December

So that's that then. What a journey with all of the characters. A film and three brilliant tv mini-series. The final two episodes are television drama at its finest. Those last two episodes left me and Mrs D totally stunned. The cast are like bloody family after all this time.

It was fantastic, fact.
