I’ve just finished watching a three-season series on Netflix about the drug scene in London, “Top Boy”.
I would not be a big watcher of Netflix but I gave this one a chance because I had read something positive about it online.
And I am glad I did for it was excellent and I would strongly recommend it.
Everything about it-the acting, dialogue, cinematography, storylines-was brilliant. Only one caveat: you need to turn on the subtitles to ensure to grab all the dialogue.
And bear in mind that the gang members and “road men” and “youts” speak in a slang and dialect that could be difficult to follow at first.
But it is well worth the effort, and I could not recommend it highly enough.
This series has reminded me again of the power of story to engage readers and viewers.
