This was the best series i have ever seen on television it really was, the storyline was great and the acting was spot-on, Iain Glen (Carl) played a chillingly real role in the film, he was perfectly cast as the gang leader, London was an interesting and happening place to live at that time, unlike now, its a toilet. I was in a gang just like this one at the time, so i know from experience what it was really like, i had a great time being in the gang/firm whatever you want to call it, it really was that way where i lived in North & South London, a lot of the scenes from the series actually happened to me and people i know, the series was a mirror image of life at that time, money and ultra violence was everywhere. It was VERY VERY exciting and things were changing all the time on a daily basis, the series shows this very well in all manner of ways, it was not just what you saw on screen, but what you never saw, it was very cleverly made and directed, i don't think they could show the series now on television, as its all become far too PC now, they swapped "The Sweeney" for the bill and it all went rapidly downhill from there, i really hate it. The series portrays a time that is long gone and will never return, mores the pity. Over the years i have really wanted to see this series again but have not been able to. I would love to be able to buy a copy of this series if anyone has a copy, please let me know and you can consider it sold, kind regards everyone, Gerard.
