Funny, but I can't get my head around there being a huge American high school in the Forest of Dean, when I know that the 2 towns acting as locations have a total population about the same size as the student population of the campus used (local knowledge really doesn't help the suspesion of disbelief). No problem with the 80s setting, but it being american (except for the accents and rugby balls instead of USfootballs) just seems weird to me, and keeps pulling me out.
Filmed in and around Newport too.

Caerleon at least, that'd be the university campus - University of Wales in Newport wasn't it? and maybe a couple of the houses, mostly though it seems to be Symmonds Yat, Chepstow, with Puzzlewood & other rural FoD locations


I saw one scene which was filmed from the old railway bridge in Tintern.

It appears quite a lot - but I was kinda counting Tintern as counting under Chepstow / Forest of Dean

Season 2 I had thought was a bit weak on first viewing, as I think many did- because it changed so much, but it's absolutely banging so far.


Well now who doesn't love endlessly raving about the wire

Agree on season 2 thought it was weakest first time out and might think it's the best now - Frank sabotka is an outstanding character, one of the best across the whole series
