Powerful and movingBy Roblugg (5 reviews) from London , 29 Sep 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]If you liked the film you should like this too. There are some hilarious scenes, some moving scenes, scenes which expand on the characters from the original film and at least one scene which was amongst the hardest things I have ever watched, ever!
I can understand some of the criticism that it isn't as good as the film. Personally I just think it's different and the acting, cinematography and direction is first rate.

AAA+ TopsBy a customer , 24 Sep 2013ugh... just absolutely superb. you need to watch the whole lot in sequence and then watch it a second an third time... a proper, proper film. thank you all.
Unbelievably goodBy sugstal (4 reviews) , 17 Jan 2013Unbelievably good. Watch it in one go and you'll be drained but aware that you've just viewed something outstanding. Every character is a joy to watch. Quite simply, it gels. So shut the door, put up the do not disturb sign and treat yourself to British drama at its very best.
well made british tv dramaBy smokeychops (670 reviews) from newcastle under lyme , 02 Jan 2013Very well made British TV drama. Well written and well made. I really hope they carry on making some more.
If your 40 plus. This is a must see series.By Slees (1 review) , 06 Dec 2012If any British film deserves an Oscar, this gritty, hard hitting, in your face series is it. For the 40 somethings, This is England series takes you on a journey through the depressive, drab era of the 80's yet you are drawn in and swept along with a gang of friends through their lives. Yes, it's hard core, yes it's look away TV at times but that's how powerful it is and that's how life is sometimes. Hard,tough but exciting
GREAT BRITISH ACTING AND FILM MAKING!By nORMObAZZA (1249 reviews) , 06 Dec 2012Picks up nicely from the film and showcases a lot of the characters that played supporting roles. The final episode includes possibly the most harrowing scene I have ever seen, and I've seen some gritty stuff in my time.
