Classic TV
2 September 2006 | by (st helens, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this when it first came out on Channel 4 and being young it was the first "surreal" programme that i had seen. It is funny but in a real life sort of way and it does depict the realities on living on Merseyside in the 80's very accurately. It was hard a hard time but people still had a laugh, made friends and generally didn't let society get them down. It features cameo's by various players from the mighty Liverpool team on the mid-80's. After seeing the acting performances from Souness and Dalglish its no wonder that they stuck to football. Its a really good little series, it wouldn't have won many Oscar's but it's not a bad programme at all. And recently it has come out on DVD for around £10 so its a "must buy" as far as i am concerned.
