OK sooo initially I was just going to keep my opinions to my self but I cant hold my mouth on this 1!
I’m not sure where to start... maybe by taking a puff on a crack pipe while i prepare to go sell drugs whilst talking to my white Rasta friend who accompanies me in selling drugs however his dream is to become a pizza chef specialising in URB PIZZA!
I seriously went into this show wanting to enjoy it... in the hope that I would finally watch something that realistically provides an insight into the lives of young innercity youth!
Nevertheless it doesn’t... how do I know that because I AM a young person living in the inner-city!
If the show had more intelligence and creativity then maybe some of the stereotypes I could live with (case in point THE WIRE!)
However it doesn't and were left with the same tired young black drug dealer scenario and the BBC chucking out “black programming” to fulfill their quota!
