first hoskins....now friel......the old guard our pulling it out the bag left right and centre...
top telly tales.
I could happily watch Cracker over and over
the bumbler got a big coltraine sized boxset of it...he was eating cans of slippers for his entire first year of uni because of it......might borrow it.
did you watch any of the other series of the street?.....i've only seen these last two
It tails off a little towards the end, but at its height it's probably the best TV I've ever seen.
I've seen bits and pieces of the other two series of The Street. Seems to be a little patchy - some really strong episodes like the last two have been, some not so hot.
i'd be expecting a lot after these last two
Which, much as I'd love the other writers to be as good as him, probably explains the quality difference.
The good news is that he's at least co-writer on all of this series (according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Street_(TV_series) anyway).
Don't let me put you off though - the other series are definitely worth a look if you get the chance. Just don't expect them all to be up to the recent standard.
they should've called it.....'there are eight million stories'.......or '20,000 streets under the sky' or summit like that...
actually the street is better than both those.....anyway, anyway.....watch em on the i player
but the gritty reality part of it didn't marry up with the happy ending part imo
