To alcohol, the source and the solution to all life's problems
3 September 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The opening quote by the wonderful Homer J Simpson sets the tone.

A nightclub is looking to extend its hours, drug fuelled rage is hitting the town. It looks at the binge drinking culture that's been with us in the UK for a good few years. It focuses on the stories of different people, seeing it from the point of view of the council, the Police and the Nightblub owner.

We've all seen how bad things get on a night out, if you haven't i'd suggest Swansea on a Saturday night!

Lots of great music, lots of drunken blokes. It's a hard hitting drama, some of what the paramedics have to contend with is hard to watch, I'm sure some of it is more real then made up.

Made back in 2005 it looks at the dread some people feared about the 24 hours in pubs. It boasts a super cast, I love Chris Coghill, he is such a tosser in this, fit looking guy with some rather insane hair.
