5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Gem, 29 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cup [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fantastic 'fly-on-the-wall' comedy/drama in the style of The Office, but faster and for me at least, being a football fan, much funnier. This was originally shown on BBC from 21st August to 25th September 2008.

Terry McConnell (Steve Edge) will stop at nothing to get his son Malky (Ceallach Spellman) watched by the scout of Bolton Wanderers whilst playing for Ashburn United U11s. His long suffering wife, Janice is wonderfully acted by Jennifer Hennessy. Excellent support from Tanya Franks and Dominic Coleman as Sandra and Vincent Farrell the team sponsors........ and funeral directors. The rest of the cast all play their parts to perfection as well.

DVD includes:

* Extended Scenes
* Deleted Scenes
* Audio Commentaries
* Character Extras
* Making of Featurette
* Outtakes

16:9 widescreen, Dolby Digital Stereo, and English Subtitles for the Hard of Hearing. Running time for the six episodes is actually 175 mins and not 147 as listed here by Amazon.

Also on the 2 DVD set there is an Alternate Ending Easter Egg, and a really funny disclaimer by Steve Edge and Jennifer Hennessy.

A real gem that somehow seems to have slipped under the radar. If you are interested in football at any level I am sure you will enjoy this DVD.
