I've only seen the first episode, so my opinion is judged entirely on that so far.

This could have been an amazing show that showed a personable account of working class life on an estate, and there was some great moments (the drag queen at the working men's club, the culture of extended family), but it veered into the too predictable territory of crime etc and showed the underclass as normal. Maybe that was the shows intention, but I personally don't think it was representative and gave into showing stereotypes far too easily.
