CGiii Comment

This will make you cringe - until deep furrows are permanently engraved into your face.

White trash - British-style - and, it's not a pretty sight.

Hopefully, all the actors are actually acting...because, never before has such a vile collection of human beings been exhibited on the small screen.

It is entertaining in a very perverse way...strangely, addictive.

138 episodes will be missed.


The(ir) Blurb...

The story of a young group of siblings pretty much abandoned by their parents, surviving by their wits - and humor - on a rough Manchester council estate. Whilst they won't admit it, they need help and find it in Steve, a young middle class lad who falls for Fiona, the oldest sibling, and increasingly finds himself drawn to this unconventional and unique family. Anarchic family life seen through the eyes of an exceptionally bright fifteen year old, who struggles to come of age in the context of his belligerent father, closeted brother, psychotic sister and internet porn star neighbors.
