    Love it!
    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 realizeā€¦
    just how talented the professionals who originally recorded these tracks were."
    - Sister Michael after listening to a version of "The Rose" at the school's talent show.

    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.

    I hope you enjoy! I got my parents into it, though they had to turn the subtitles on to understand half of the dialogue. :p

  15. 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. :righton:

    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. :laugh:

    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.
