**** Brassic review: an X-rated Last of the Summer Wine
The Telegraph – Gabriel Tate | 23 August 2019

“Brassic (Sky One) – whose title comes from northern slang for being skint – was nimbly scripted, vigorously performed and far more of a piece with early Shameless episodes, sharing its cynicism, optimism and us-vs-them defiance of that show when it was as interested in the activities of hearts and brains as it was in groins and fists.”

**** Brassic review – a tale of northern ne’er-do-wells with humour and heart to spare
The Guardian – Lucy Mangan | 22 August 2019

“It is a hilarious, warm, brutal melange that works because it has heart without sentimentality and authenticity without strain. Let’s hope Brassic gets as long as Shameless did. Let us live with and love them all – even as we want, like Erin, to batter sense into their heads and stop their slide towards oblivion.”

“Forget old episodes of The Inbetweeners or Peep Show and dare we say it, Derry Girls. Brassic is here and it’s worth your time.”

Brassic: This tale of cheeky rogues is pure filth — exactly what we need on TV
Evening Standard – David Sexton | 22 August 2019

“So there’s our rogueish gang, like a filthy Famous Five. Or last of the Summer Wine crossbred with Trainspotting. Each week, the lads have a comically criminal adventure. Tonight, it’s stealing a prize Shetland pony. Next week, it’s safebreaking via a sewer, a big poo joke. It’s always good to see how the other half live. Filthily! ”
