Big round of applause for actress Louisa Harland as Orla McCool, who slyly steals quite a few scenes.
Catch yourself on!
It's absolute gold. One highlight for me was Kevin McAleer as Uncle Colm telling his hostage story. Just superb.
"You know, every year I sit backstage listening to the singers and it really makes me realize…
just how talented the professionals who originally recorded these tracks were."

The season was too short! I want more. Hilarious, but closed captioning helps us Americans get some of the small stuff.
I love this show. The fact that I have a huge crush on Michelle has nothing to
do with it, I might add.
I marathoned the series this evening and absolutely loved it. Hilarious, heartfelt, strange, and brilliantly cast. I'm about to recommend it to everyone I know. I loved the musical selections as well.
How it there not more chatter about this show? I think it is blowing up in the countries of origin.
I absolutely adore it (I've watched season 1 four times through on Netflix). Season two is airing now on Channel 4 in the UK, but unavailable--through traditional means--in the US right now. I've watched the first two episodes online myself and very much looking forward to episodes 3-6 over the next few weeks.
One of the most hilarious and refreshing shows I've seen in ages.
Uncle Colm reappeared this week, delaying the queue at the local cinema. Classic.
Was on the fence about this but now I'll give it a go.
I hope you enjoy! I got my parents into it, though they had to turn the subtitles on to understand half of the dialogue.
this looks good! gonna check it out...thanks...
AH HA HA! that's funny, but I can relate!
One of my favorite movies is called The Snapper. I have watched it so many times that I think I have the Irish lingo down pat. hehe Lots of naughty words for sure.
I did enjoy the first two eps, which I saw when this thread first appeared. I agree the language barrier is going to be a major stumbling block for Mum & Da America, yet not for the language iself...but for their aversion to even using closed captioning.
Which is too bad, because they're truly missing a much better family comedy than anything ABC puts on awkwardly-targeted to the "family" audience...!
Ahh...wait until you get the the third episode for Season 1. Just outstanding. The "Holy Smirk" episode.
Very funny show, it takes a bit of listening to understand everything said but it is worth it.
