Press Gang is NOT a children's program. Unlike a lot of kid's programming today, its writing refuses to patronize the viewer. If anything, it is a show about young adults for young adults and beyond.

Press Gang IS one of the most delicious, clever, and suspenseful television programs to ever come out. It is the Turkish delight of TV, the stuff ardent TV watchers crave. The writing is whip smart and delectable, the characters are funny, and the plots are heartfelt or else full of danger. It is a show about teenagers, and was created for anyone with a sense of humor, taste for mystery, weakness for romance, fondness for drama, and love of dialogue.

More specifically, it is a program about a group of British school-age teens who run a newspaper--the Junior Gazette. Most scenes take place in the newsroom. After a couple of episodes, viewers might find it starts to feel like home. And the instrumental theme song never loses its catchiness.

The show was shot in Britain and takes place during the late '80s and early '90s. I first watched the show in early 2011 and found it still relevant today. Just ignore the ugly clothes and chunky cell phones.

The Junior Gazette is run by infamous editor-in-chief Lynda Day (Julia Sawalha).

Lynda Day is many things: assertive, opinionated, bossy, tyrannical, sarcastic, ruthless, cruel, calculating, intelligent, ball-busting, blood-thirsty, fierce, and as vulnerable as she is abusive. She's a workaholic, competitive to the point of insanity, and a born leader. She's also feminism's dream come true, a role model for girls everywhere, and, very possibly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's predecessor.

And she's always ready with a sharp and hurtful remark, thanks to writer Steven Moffat.

Splendid show. Just as I remember from my youth. Great teen show. Love how the character Lynda Day realize her love and affection for Spike :) Julia Sawalha plays the arrogant and hard working Lynda. I recommend this. :)
