Best CH 4 Drama ever!!!
26 July 2005 | by (British Virgin Islands) – See all my reviews

Criminaly ignored this was well written, superbly acted and not seen by as many people as it should have been. Hidden away on a Monday night at 22.30, it was hardly advertised by Ch4. If it had a 21.00 or even 21.30 slot, it could have really taken off.Set in a high security prison, it featured upon the trauma's of a variety of characters coping with incarceration. Lennie James, in the lead role was excellent and he was ably supported by many others. I really enjoyed this series, although it wasn't always easy to watch.It was very gritty and dark and often quite disturbing. Ch 4 could have easily had scope for making a second series but despite rave reviews from several leading critics, poor ratings put them off. This is damned annoying, I really believe the time it was shown put people off. Ch4 spend too much dough on reality rot and not enough time pushing drama's like this , which they are often very good at. Everyone who didn't see it , missed a treat. For those who didn't see it, it can't even be bought on DVD. You can buy a DVD of Big Brother highlights ( is there such a thing! ) but they never released Buried on DVD, citing a lack of interest from viewers. They and they only, are to blame for this.
