TOP BOY / NETFLIX

Wasn't sure what to expect from this series. Found it to be a bit of an East London version of The Wire. It's only two seasons of 6 episodes. It has a great cast and the interaction of different cultures to the drug trade and how they deal with the law, informants and trying to get out.

Very enjoyable.

One of the reviews from wiki



Quote:
Upon completion of the series, Top Boy received overwhelmingly positive feedback from critics. The drama premiered with a solid 1.1 million viewers and managed to maintain its audience share over the course of its four night run.[2] Tom Sutcliffe, writing in The Independent, said: "The drama involved virtually no preaching at all, but a sense of morality was everywhere, as bad conscience flickered in the face of the toughest characters and grief hit the culpable and the blameless alike. Best of all, it always found a little time for something other than plot, whether it was banter on stairwells or the melancholy beauty of the city at night. Seriously good television."[3] Ed Cumming of The Daily Telegraph wrote of "minor quibbles", before adding that "on the whole this was a well-made, convincing drama, with an excellent ensemble cast. Ashley Walters, once of rap group So Solid Crew and with real-life arrests for firearms crimes, knows the world he is portraying. The two boys, Ra'Nell and Gem, did a good job of balancing adolescent aggression with naÔve vulnerability. When Ra'Nell left a message on his mentally ill motherís phone, you knew it was half from a sense of responsibility towards her and half because he just wanted his mum. I wonder if heíll still need her by the end of Thursday night." He also noted similarities between Top Boy and the American television drama series The Wire.[4] In January 2014, Audience Network began broadcasting the first season on DirecTV in the United States.

Thanks for the heads up. Sounds right up my alley. Will do this once I finish Jessica Jones.

I just finished the second episode. I really like this show. Accents, of course, are hard to get around, but this is high quality stuff.

Writing, cinematography, soundtrack.. it's all really good. My wife usually sits on the couch and works when I'm watching stuff. She doesn't really pay attention, but just kind of picks up on whatever I'm watching and forms opinions based on glimpses when something happens. Last night she said, "This show seems really good."
