What a cracking mini series that was. I'm sorry it's finished. Did anyone else catch it?
I caught the first ten minutes or so of one of the episodes and was sufficiently intrigued to turn it off so that I could watch This is England 86 on 4oD so that I would understand the 88 episodes. I'm just watching episode 4 now.
I might watch '86 again - there were some bits of '88 that I didn't get and think I must have missed something.
Did you watch the original film?
No - I didn't think it was my cup of tea but having seen the first series I think I'll probably get hold of the film so that I understand the backstory - I've looked at wiki for '86 series so might look up the film...I try to avoid wiki because it has a tendency to tell the whole story.
Good stuff though.
Loved both series and the film! That was my era so I relate to it all - it brings back so many memories because I had friends like that! My sons love it too and ask me loads of questions about what life was like then.
