5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British !!, 22 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boys from the Blackstuff [DVD] (DVD)
Why don't they write drama like this any more? All we seem to have on tv now is pathetic American fluff. This was so gritty in it's portrayal of 80's Britain in the Thatcher years and had me in tears at times. It was also funny in parts, how could it not be when the gang were from Liverpool?, but in the main I really felt for them as they tried to keep their families together during hard times, and especially poor Yosser whose story had to be the most poignant of all as he succumbed to mental health problems. Where are you now Alan Bleasdale?? Come back, we need you and more of your ilk! If you enjoyed this at the time, buy it and celebrate the excellence of it, you won't be disappointed.
