Once again the stories in Season two (2), as in the first season, are about ordinary "everyday" happenings that evolve into life changing events. Each episode is about ordinary "working class" people living on a lower middle class street in Northern England that are living very ordinary lives experiencing what start out as very ordinary events such as: going to work, arguing with neighbors, taking a taxi, going to school or a social event or going to the store or a nightclub, walking down the street, etc. These ordinary events or happenings morph into "life changing" happenings that completely change the ordinary people's lives that are being portrayed. The "everyday" happenings that become "life changing" events are: murder, out of the ordinary "extra marital affairs"; deteriorating relationships between mother and children, husband and wife and families being torn asunder, etc.
If you want to be highly entertained and to be "awed" at some marvelous "TV viewing" get Season two (2) of "Street" because, I feel, that it is great.
There is a lot of food for thought in this series, especially one story in particular.....Very good DRAMA.
