Woeful
27 August 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A soap that is apparently about Irish life.

It is a show in which everything happens. Affairs, rape, car crashes, murder, drug pushing. No stone is left unturned in the bid to get higher ratings.

The producers are under the illusion that by bringing up "controversial" topics that they are hip and in tune with the nation. However the stories are dealt with so poorly and written as though the writers were comatose, that the audience has no emotional attachment. It is a conveyor belt for topical issues.

The direction is banal. The camera stays on the person who speaking. This is disconcerting when it insists on hopping from actor to actor as the dialogue dictates.

The sets are shoddy, but the acting is worse. None involved seem to care for their characters. They do not respond to their fellows. It is like a show full of cardboard figures.

There is nothing believable in this show.

And to the comment which berated mine: I admire many irish actors and shows. Bachelor's Walk for one was amazing, and The Clinic displays not only fine acting but also fine writing.
