A FORMER fan of This Life watching the series a second time cannot believe he ever obsessed over such smug, solipsistic bilge.
Tom Logan, now 42, watched the series in his late teens and yearned for the life of a house share in South London in the company of ambitious, unashamed hedonists.
However within 10 minutes of starting to rewatch the series he realised what tedious, self-obsessed bastards the characters were.
Logan said: “Firstly – ‘South London’? That implies somewhere deep down Lewisham way where the cabs daren’t go. They’re in bloody Southwark Bridge Road. That’s central London.
“Second, those names. ‘Miles’? ‘Milly’? ‘Egg’? That alone makes them twats. Why the hell did I want them to be my friends? Don’t even mention that terminally annoying idiot Delilah.”
Logan also took issue with the characters’ much-vaunted drinking, drug-taking and casual sex, which never happened to him and which he could never afford anyway due to paying £1500 a month for a shithole in New Cross.
He added: “The best bit was where she punches that woman in the face. That’s what it should have been the whole series – all of them punching each other in the face, all of the time.”
