Amazing. The actors were superb, Sean Bean and Stephen Graham demonstrate why they are two of the most respected names in the industry today with absolutely stellar performances and never let up for a second. especially Sean Bean. Well written with good pacing. A character study done to perfection, with every theme, nuance, and character nailed to a T. I cannot recommend this enough. Directed with excellence.
Terrific mini-series. Two separate stories overlapping and blending. If this doesn't keep you out of jail nothing will. 10/10
One of the best miniseries in a long time; phenomenal acting at work here. I was surprised it was only 3 episodes, I would gladly have watched a full season!
Jimmy McGovern is unmatched in writing brilliance - shining a spotlight on prisons a world away from what the Daily Mail would have you believe they're like - he paints a damning portrayal of institutionalised corruption with astounding performances from the always brilliant Sean Bean and Stephen Graham - few actors have a better track record of appearing in good stuff than Graham.
Solid 3 hour prison series. I just binged the whole thing and it held my attention. Well written. Well acted. Not cliched. The only thing I can think of comparing it to would be the HBO series Oz only British.
A fantastic short series. Sean Bean is absolutely fantastic, this might be him at his best. The first episode had me hooked almost instantly, and it was definitely the highlight of the show. Episodes 2 and 3 were great, though not quite as captivating as the first. There's just something really quite intriguing about there being so many unknowns about the main character and how he's going to fare in prison, and some of that is lost as the episodes roll on. One thing that maybe didn't quite match up for me was probably Stephen Graham's characters plot. Stephen is great as always, but it often felt as though his plotline was a bit of an afterthought, and neither he or his plot seems to develop in the same great ways that the main plot does. Still, the show is fantastic, one of the best dramas I've watched in a while, and I'd definitely recommend it.
Incarcerating, imprisoning, punishing, arresting, detaining,
[Movistar+] Screenwriter Jimmy McGovern builds one of his usual stories with characters whose circumstances are beyond them, subjected to prisons that are not only physical. Supported by two splendid works by Sean Bean and Stephen Graham, there is a model structure that presents in three episodes the transformation of two characters moved towards despair.
by far one of the best mini-series i have seen. Nothing comes close to this superb drama, the production the outstanding acting by both of them.This is a must see, a must!
Great prison drama with great performances that will keep you out of jail! Recommended!Even though the episodes don't seem like enough but it still does a good job of satisfying you :slight_smile:
