this, the fourth installment in the up series, was originally presented as two separate programs so it comes in at a relatively hefty 2hrs 15mins and doesn’t even include two of the subjects (they opted out). it has a couple surprises and some real maturation on the part of some of the worrisome characters. neil is struggling and his musings are very interesting. he’s a loner and a man of the road who probably spends a lot of time by himself thinking about things. i could relate to him in a lot of ways, but also wished he had been savvy enough to see this coming and avoid it. we’ll see how things go in the next few….
