poxymash will be dogmatically occupying the sofa tonight and making a big deal out of turning up the volume every time people start talking, for this is england '86. we've heard murmurs that the four part series, which rejoins the same brilliant film cast 3 years on, may even outshine the film... this will likely prove to be a tired, pointless comparison that ultimately comes down to personal opinion and people saying things like 'you can't really compare a tv series to a film though can you'. who cares? director shane meadows has never disappointed us before, we loved the film and we're very very excited!
