imagine if Tony Soprano only had "civilians" as friends and family....
27 August 2008 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

I have heard Winstone referred to as the British DiNiro, but in this series his character Alan is more of a British Tony Soprano - if Tony's best friends were "civilians". Alan (Winstone) is a narcissist (and a lot of other bad stuff) but he is not as intentionally evil as Tony Soprano. One of his problems his that he seems to prefer socializing with his mates who are a lot less successful than him.

The result is a more believable character, and the unusual turns of this story are more believable than the Sopranos.

To this American (me) the British accents are hard to understand in this series. I am a New Yorker who watches a lot of UK films. This was extra hard to understand.
