Closer than the doubters would have you believe...
1 January 2018 | by funkmaster-28785See all my reviews

I recently binged on every available episode after having it recommended to me by my father, who is himself an old mod, and I'm delighted to say just how much I enjoyed it. I live in Brighton myself and have done for a few years now, so when I say that this is not too far from the truth I can say so from expedience.

Brighton is the home of the rebels and while many of the city's aged population have gone into their golden years far more gracefully than the protagonist of this fine piece, there are a few of Henrys ilk running around and still having the time of their lives. The Rebel is nothing short of a love letter to the often forgotten greatness of our elder generation and a reminder that they are perfectly capable when it comes to finding some fun and being every bit as deserving of our attention as anyone else.
