This Life: 10 years on.....

Well, bit of cult viewing tonight as I have been looking forward to this since it was first announced months ago and have been watching the repeats on BBC2 in preparation for tonight's This Life + 10 years.

I was bit slow on the uptake and never started watching This Life until the second series and started to really liked it. The series' producer was Tony Garnett (he's also produced the current one-off) who worked with Ken Loach in the 1960s and 1970s. And the storylines, well they were pretty cool as well. And they stopped with the second series which was sensible. Oh it was a shame Amy Jenkins writing career went down the drain afterwards.

Anyway, tonight we see whether the intervening years have been kind to Egg, Milly, Anna, Miles and Warren.

I wonder if this will catch on and will we get X-Files + 10 years: The truth is still out there....?

Oh yeah, whether you are interested, the characters I liked the best were Anna and Miles though Milly could pack a punch.
