Excellent Storyline
19 June 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I've just watched all 4 episodes of Father & Son in one go and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Storyline was great as were Dougray Scott & Reece Noi's acting.

Watching the pain on Dougray Scott's face or the scowl on Reece Noi in certain scenes was at times too painful to watch.

However in my opinion, certain parts of the plot were too neatly wrapped up or not explored enough & some accents wavered , but on the whole it was an amazing portrayal of a parent's sacrifices in life.

I certainly hope and look forward to it being released on DVD because it certainly is worth buying.
