This Life

Synopsis

A group of young lawyers who share a London house find out that, these days, only the old can afford to be young. This is not a legal series  it never goes inside a court it's about the characters, their friendships, relationships and the way they feel and behave at work. Huge cult hit in the U.K.

Across the two series, we get to meet the full-of-himself Miles (Jack Davenport), the loud but troubled Anna (Daniela Nardini), Milly (Amita Dhiri) the control-freak and the unsure Egg (Andrew Lincoln). Add in the upbeat Warren (Jason Hughes), who is gay but doesn't want his parents to know, and the confused and bisexual Ferdy (Ramon Tikaram), and you have a melting pot of emotions and stories that are as captivating to watch as they were when the show was first broadcast.

A BRITISH FRIENDS? NOT QUITE, MATE
Gritty realism is the hallmark of BBC America's This Life, about a group of young professionals living in London. 
Los Angeles Times, 23/08/1999 

'THIS LIFE': 'FRIENDS' IN 'REAL WORLD'
Imagine Ally McBeal's lawyers living together like Friends. Or MTV's The Real World shot by the producers of NYPD Blue. Only with more sex, please, we're British. 
Dallas Morning News, 07/1998 

EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT...
What must they think of us? When BBC2's lawyers-in-love drama 'This Life' made its debut in America last November, TV commentators went into a spin over the show's 'frankness' about matters sexual and chemical (they didn't complain about the swearing, thanks to a judicious bleeping of the more robust Anglo-Saxon vocabulary).
Guardian, 24/01/1999 

FROM BRITAIN, FRIENDS (BUT NOT 'FRIENDS')
The young lawyers of 'This Life' aren't like any of their American TV counterparts. For one thing, they had to work to stay on the air before becoming a hit. 
New York Times, 17/01/1999 

U.S GETS TASTE OF U.K 'LIFE'
The bold British soap This Life ratchets up prime-time voyeurism another notch. Get a bloody life, will ya? Get the scorching, second-season start of boilingly blatant, titillatingly trendy, bad-child Brit soap This Life premiering Monday on cable channel BBC America.
Orange County Register, 18/08/1999
