Blood Brothers is a classic. There, I said it.
The storyline is imaginative and well executed (it's spilt well in terms of the age gap in the story). You feel an instant warmth and empathy towards the characters and has quality well written music, laughs and emotion in equal high qaulity measure.
To those commenting on the swearing showing a lack of imagination in script writing...I wonder if you have ever visited the area in question. For me it represented an authenticity. Yes a times it was gratuatous...but then that is what kids do. Swear for affect and reaction. I found it rather refreshing how an adult character is used to play the child.
The use of the narrator is spot on and the socio economic under current that flows through the story to the end is a poignant reminder of how two very similar paths can end up skewed into almost total opposites due to a class system that almost designs itself for the less fortunate to fail.
Cracking show, seen it no less than 8 times now. Keep up the good work.
