The Up Series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7-49 Up  [DVD] (DVD)
I watched the first three series every seven years whilst growing up in England. It was most enjoyable back then ~ and some of the children involved, particularly Neil and Tony have always remained a vivid picutre in my memory. That is why I was most excited when I managed to track down a copy of 7-49. It is just how I remembered it. Extremely entertaining although quite pertinent at times with it's portrayal of the class difference and social issues.
My only minor critism in each series would be the constant flashbacks to previous interviews. I realise that this was only meant to be viewed every seven years ~ therefore we would need to be reminded of previous questions and subsequent answers given by the children. I chose to watch 4 series in one week ~ so naturally by the fourth series of flashbacks I was growing a little tired of the same footage!
That said I am finding the series extremely entertaining and love watching them all finding their place in society!
