I have just watched the first episode and to be honest I have mixed feelings. On one level there's a story there but on another it is way too exaggerated.
I don't see it as Northern; it's more a homage to Snatch, Lock Stock and The Commitments, and while it's not hilarious it's watchable. For me the swearing and sex are more to bolster its edge as a TV show and the story line on the first one was weak and unreal. That said I'll watch more as it does leave you with enough interest to see what happens next.
