It took me back to my youth, wonderful script, daring story lines and honest life experiences. It's been a long time since I have seen something this enthralling on TV, well done to the team.
Great series, poor pan and scan presentation
I was about to purchase this (and the companion series Banana). There is no Blu Ray release, so iTunes is the only way to own an HD copy.
The programme was shot in a cinematic aspect ratio, wider than standard TV screens, and lots of shots take advantage of the extra screen size.
Unfortunately, the image in the iTunes version has been cropped down, resulting in distracting pan and scan moments (like in old 4:3 VHS releases of movies).
Really well made and good on Channel 4 for broadcasting :) Im sure HBO will made the USA version as they did with Queer as Folk. About time we had quality well made gay programmes on Uk TV. Gay people come in all shape and sizes, camp non camp this is not how all gay men act its a programme to entertain. £20 is a lot being Cucumber and Banana complete box set are on Amazon for £17.50 but no blu ray. At least here its in HD but no banana
