This is England

I've been sick for forever.  I had strep throat and then managed to catch a wicked cold while on my fifth day of antibiotics.  I'm just coming out of it now.  I took this opportunity to watch the original movie and the following series' of "This is England". Thank you to all the YouTube users who took the time to upload all the series.

What can I say? It's amazing.  It's gritty and real. The characters are multi-dimensional and complex. It touches on friendship, love, family - the one you're born into and the one you make for yourself - pretty much everything that matters.

I laughed, I cried, I discovered the saddest and most beautiful song I have ever heard, Dogwood Blossom by Fionn Regan.
