In the Flesh Series 2 Episode 1 Review

The first series of BBC3’s In the Flesh caught a lot of people’s attentions, but there was always a lot of unfulfilled potential. Intelligently allegorical and completely of its time, shows like this don’t come around every day and, as important as it always felt as a piece of social commentary for racial tensions in the UK, watching it always felt like the beginning of something special, never given the room to properly evolve. Some complained of the heavy-handedness in which Kieren’s story attempted to comment on modern-day Britain, while others applauded it for its commentary on certain, still sadly taboo, themes, but most just wanted to see more – to see what else it could do.
