  • Fantastic show

    9.0
    Despite sometimes getting off to a slow start The Street gets me hooked every time.



    Individually, the episodes are strikingly gritty with topical storylines that are often neglected or portrayed poorly in other dramas. But the most impressive part of The Street is the way each of these episodes links together as the series progresses, with specific characters making small cameos in later productions.



    As well as having a brilliant creator, The Street also welcomes a host of fantastic, and often award-winning, actors. The third series partically sees this with the appearance of Bob Hoskins, Anna Friel and Maxine Peake.



    It's sad to hear that it won'd be returning after this series but I've enjoyed the show so far and feel, if it continues to deliver episodes of such high-standards, it will be leaving on a high.moreless
  • The Street really brings out the best in British TV

    8.3
    The Street which aires on BBC is set up in the North of England where each episode is about a family or a person on what is wrong with their life.



    In Series 1 featured a Man and Women only the Man was beating up his girlfriend and would threaten her if he never seen his kids this was in the 6th episode which is a great one to it is the best one. In episode 5 of series 1 sees Timothy Spall playing Eddie a Taxi driver and he picks up an asylum seeker he is been rehoused. The problem in this episode he they wont let him in which Eddie lets him stay at his house which his wife does not like this one is great in seeing the ups and downs in and the outcome was good.



    Episode 3 of Series 1 is about a man and his life is going so well he is a teacher and everything is good. He goes jogging and needs the toilet so he does it in the bushes when a girl sees him her father thinks he is a flasher. The Episode is sad but well written and watching it made me feel sorry for him as anything goes wrong. The only problem I have with the show is I wish they would show more of it.



    Series 2 was just even better it was some of the best stuff I had seen in ages. The 1st Episode is about a twin and his twin brother dies so the other one pretends to be him but it doesn't go well as planned. But if you have to see any of Series 2 it has to be Episode 5 with Mark Benton who plays Wayne a postman I will not go on anymore about that cause it is one you really must see.



    I should not go on because you must see the series for yourself it is brilliant with a great set of cast members who bring top quality acting.moreless
