Absolutely Brilliant
27 October 2005 | by funderpantsbrianSee all my reviews

When everyone saw the ad that another Irish drama was coming, nobody cared. But this show, was just something special. Apparently it's ratings were unbelievable, that's why they repeated the series again a few months later. Allen Leech is brilliant, this guy is gonna make it big anytime soon. He's alreay been in two big Irish movies but this is the highlight of his career. It's funny, sad , romantic... everything you want to see - something you wouldn't really expect from an Irish drama. For the first time, you could walk into school and everybody would be talking about Love Is the drug, not the o.c or other American shows.

Truly brilliant, well done lads.
