This two-disc DVD contains the six, hour-long episodes that comprised the first season of this BBC drama created and written by Jimmmy McGovern. The Street features exceptionally solid performances by a host of talented actors including Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall, Jane Horrocks and Sue Johnston among many others who are equally talented if less well-known. Each of the six episodes centers on one or more of the families living on a block of townhouses in an outer ring of London. Each is a hard hitting drama that tells a tale of actions and their consequences in no uncertain terms and with a strong moral flavor. If you find current offerings of American television to be crude, exploitative and/or mindless drivel you stand a very good chance of being throroughly engaged by this series. Evidently the hold of American television on its audiences has not loosened much as this series failed to make much of an impact here and as a result we are able to offer this DVD at a discount of over 60% off its retail price. Here's a chance for you to take advantage of your neighbors' lack of taste to get a real bargain on a solid television drama.
