A surprisingly good little series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: P.O.W. [DVD] (DVD)
Got this for £1 from a charity shop on a whim, turned out to a lucky find and an absolute gem.
Not quite BAFTA winning but filled to the brim with excellent storylines, acting, setting and drama. The series was obviously based on some of the classic P.O.W films of the 60's and 70's and follows their example nicely.
There are several gritty subjects which are covered at various points during the series and make for surprising plot twists (I won't risk spoiling things by going into detail). The acting is often very good, even if it isn't quite up to BAFTA award standard, and certainly adds nicely to the drama.
The only minor complaint I have is that there are a few moments which drag a little, not a big deal but did give me the urge to reach for the FFWD button.
This is one TV series I am very happy to recommend.
